Hello! Today, I’ll write about amazing and great organization called Operation Christmas Child. First, I’ll talk about Operation Christmas Child.
About Operation Christmas Child
I go to an awesome church. I just started going last April. I love this church. It is my favorite thing all week most times. I have about five close buddies there. Two in 4th grade like me, one in 3rd grade, and two in second grade. We do a project every year called Operation Christmas Child. This will be my first time doing it. Operation Christmas Child is an organization by Samaritan’s Purse. Operation Christmas Child is an organization where you pack a shoebox and put small gifts in it. I’ll give some gift ideas later. You pack a shoebox and send it to Samaritan’s Purse. Samaritan’s Purse sends it to the 130 countries with the most hurting children. At our church are goal is to pack 1,437 shoeboxes!!!!!
How to Pack a Shoebox
If you just got new shoes for school and you still have the shoebox keep it. Once you have the shoebox you can start packing it. You can decorate the shoebox too. Here are some things you can pack in the shoebox.
1. Pencils from birthday parties. Kids who get these packages love the pencils the best.
2. Small stuffed animals like Beanies Babies or Beanie Boos are great.
3. Markers and Crayons not used yet are awesome.
4. Headbands and other hair ornaments are great for the boxes as well.
5. Hard Candy is nice as well.
6. Maybe small notebooks you get from birthday parties.
7. Small tubes of toothpaste and toothbrushes are also great ideas for the boxes.
8. Soap bars are also great
9. Combs and brushes are also awesome.
10. Maybe you can come up with your own ideas as well.
Here is a video of the children getting the shoeboxes.
OH WOW! YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED A FEW SECONDS AGO. ON ANIMAL JAM JUMP I GOT IN 3RD PLACE. FOR MY BUDDIES ALL TIME RECORDS I’M IN 1ST PLACE. I BEAT MY BUDDY Hammer60 EVEN!!! SCORE WAS 48,382. YEP. THAT IS ALL. BYE!
1. I went to Chicago to get an American Girl last Monday. Guess who it was. Marie – Grace? No, Julie? No, Rebecca? No, Isabelle? Yes! I got Isabelle Palmer. She loves dancing like me. I was thinking about getting Julie, Marie – Grace, or Rebecca. I wanted Isabelle though. So I got Isabelle.
2. I went to the zoo with my girl scout troup. We bought supplies on their Amazon wish list and gave it to the zoo. We got a rocking horse for the snow leopard and jaguar cubs too. Cool right? So in return we got a private tour. We saw the hyenas, brown bears, wolfs, and moose up close. For the moose super close. The width of a laptop was how close I was. The wolves stayed back a bit. The wolves are 15 years old. That is old for a wolf. The brown bears were also close. The brown bears were named after the northern lights [ Aurora Borealis.] They were named Aurora and Boris. We fed them frozen mice. Eew. Luckily the tour guide did it. Finally, we saw the hyenas up close. One hyena kept looking at me.
3. On the Animal Jam Jump App you would not believe what happened. I jumped 30, 786 feet. Really high on AJ Jump . So that made me get 7th place on AJ Jump best players of the week.
