Operation: Christmas Child!

The first thing you read when you're reading the "who we are" page on the Samaritans Purse website is "Let my heart be broken with the things that break the heart of God." Bob Pierce, the founder of the Samaritans Purse, wrote this in his Bible after seeing just a small part of the suffering that effects children in the poverty stricken portions of the world. Since 1970, Samaritans Purse has helped people the world over who have been stricken by hardship, poverty, hurricanes, war, famine. And I have cant help but want to lend a hand.

Every child, not just "lucky" or privileged children, deserve a merry Christmas.

Operation Christmas Child is a world wide collection of shoe boxes, filled with Christmas gifts for these children. Some include toiletries, toys, school supplies...things we have all grown to take for granted each Christmas.

This week, November 16-23, is National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child. And, for this next week, for every item purchased in the Tiny Belles Boutique, we will donate an item to Operation Christmas Child. My hope is to send out lots of full boxes for at the end of this week. Help us reach this goal will you?

I will be adding new items every day this week, hosting give aways, and reminding you all via our Twitter and Facebook pages of these opportunities!

Please, help us give children all throughout the world a happy, healthy Christmas!!

"Go, and do likewise..." Luke 10:37
