If you aren’t familiar with this program, I would recommend checking it out.  It is run by Samaritan’s Purse which is under Franklin Graham (Billy Graham’s son).  You pack a shoe box of things for children (their is a list of things that are ok to send and not ok) and then it goes to a child in need all over the world.  It is the only gift they will probably receive.  Can you imagine your child not receiving anything for Christmas? 

The collection week in Nov 12-19.  This is such a great family or church activity.  We have participated now for about 10 years.  Please check it out! www.samaritanspurse.org or call 1-800-353-5949
