Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest
children’s Christmas project – sending gift-filled
shoeboxes to children in need around the world
Right now, thousands of school children from across the
UK are busy wrapping, packing and filling shoeboxes with
great little gifts for children in need overseas.
What’s more, these shoeboxes provide a special connection between two
children in the world – transcending boundaries of culture, nationality, and
geography; bridging a gap between a child who has something to give, and a
child who can’t wait to receive it.
1. Wrap an empty average-sized shoebox and lid separately.
2. Decide if your gift is for a boy or a girl and which age category, then fill
your shoebox with new gifts that will delight a child, your £3 donation and
secure it with an elastic band. You can also visit www.operationchristmas
child.org.uk to make your £3 shipping donation online by clicking on the
‘Donate Online’ button.
3. Please bring in your shoebox into school by Friday 14th November.
Thank you and happy packing!
