It’s Magic Kindness Monday again, where Corinne and I do a random act of kindness to hopefully inspire you, our readers, in some way to spread a little kindness yourself. Your act doesn’t have to be big to go a long way.
This week we have donated to Operation Christmas Child with Samaritan’s Purse. This was another week where we could get the kids involved in helping another child in need. We took them to Target where they were able to pick out a few toys and gifts to place in the shoe box. It’s amazing to see the joy in a child’s eyes when they know they are helping a little one such as themselves.
With these boxes you can choose if you will be giving to a boy or girl and in the age ranges of 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Our boxes were filled for one special little girl 5-9 and a special little boy 2-4. Operation Christmas Child is a foundation that we like to donate to every year around this time. Our Church always participates as a drop off facility. We get the boxes from them and then return them on the week designated. This happens to be the week for the boxes to be returned so you may still have some time if you would like to get involved. There is a map on the website here that can show you where the drop off locations are. The only things you need to help is a shoe box and to print off a label off of their website. You can either enclose a $9 check or pay online when you print the label off. By paying online you can also track your box to see where it goes.
Samaritans purse is a nondenominational Christian organization that helps people around the world in impoverished countries. Whether it be from natural disaster, poverty, disease, or war times they come in to make the lives of the people a little more bearable. Like the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) they believe it is God’s desire for us to help those in need whenever we come across them.
We at Kindness Curated commend Samaritan’s Purse for all that they do to help those in need. We enjoy the fact that we can be a part of this with Operation Christmas Child’s shoe box donation.
