Carlsbad and it's people are making a difference!
Hello North County San Diego and Everyone reading :)
This is not a posting about Carlsbad or our real estate market, or homes for a change...this is much better!
This year again, I wanted to share with you a great initiative that has been around for a long time you may have heard about, called Operation Christmas Child.
This is great to share your Christmas favorite or even to get your kids involved with you while packing the box and share with them about less fortunate kids their age overseas.
I am especially excited because this year, we'll get to go with my husband to the main processing center in orange county that will process all the shoeboxes of Southern California, we'll get busy!
Remember, this may be a simple kind gesture from you but the impact in that child's life is HUGE!
If you feel like you can have the time to make a box, perfect, don't forget to add a $7 check made out to :samaritan purse operation christmas child" or go online and pay with your credit/debit card and print the label to see in which country your box will be sent to. The plastic clear shoe boxes are great and can be reused by the family.
Don't forget to add a card or write a note :) PS: The $1 store is a great place to get lots of stuff!
Read instructions below. The video is pretty cool and this one too http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/OCC/
LABELS to print: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/pdf/one_sheet.pdf
If you don't want to do all that, some people in the office proposed to give me the money and I will get to go shop and pack the box for you, it will all be done Saturday :) That simple!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP :)
5 STEPS TO MAKE YOUR BOX
Use an empty shoe box (standard size, please) or a small plastic container. You can wrap the box (lid separately), but wrapping is not required. Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift.
Determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the child’s age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Print out the appropriate boy/girl label by downloading the artwork to the right. Mark the correct age category on the label, and tape the label to the top of your box.
Fill the box with a variety of gifts that will bring delight to a child. Use the gift ideas provided on the bottom of this page.
Please donate $7 or more for each shoe box you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs. You can give online by using our “Follow Your Box Donation” option, or you can write a check to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the gift items inside your box. If you or your family are preparing more than one shoe box, please make one combined donation.
Place a rubber band around each closed shoe box and drop off at the office by Friday or Saturday 5PM at the very latest or simply call me 760.282.4663.
