Shoe Boxes


We just got the 2011 Operation Christmas Child update, and James and I had to fight over who got to look at it first! :) Every year, they put awesome pictures and stories about the children receiving their shoe boxes and the impact that the program has. They also include pictures and stories of how the shoe boxes are transported. The highlights? Cartons of shoe boxes strapped to a yak, to be delivered in inner Mongolia. Cartons loaded precariously in a small canoe, being paddled into the Phillipine jungle. And my favorite...boxes dropped by helicopter to the remote islands of Madagascar, found only via smoke signal!

Sure thing! Someday I am going to stow away in a shipping carton and go hug those beautiful children.
