One of our favorite traditions at Christmas is Operation Christmas Child. You fill a shoe box with goodies and the box is sent to children who otherwise would not have a Christmas. Our church is not doing it this year so I was glad when I saw that Jacob's school is participating. We start collecting in August at back to school time with crayons, paper, glue sticks, etc.. Then we head to the dollar store to get the rest. I wrap the boxes, we fill it with goodies then we pray over it. Somehow, I hope this helps the kids know that there are so many children less fortunate than them.
