    Question

    I'm gonna do this tomorrow! You get a shoe box and fill it with toys/school supplies/clothes and stuff and it will be sent to a child who won't get a Christmas present this year You can chose a boy or girl (i'm picking a boy) and three different age groups:2-4, 5-9 or 10-14. I'm doing ages 5-9. It's not too late to do this if you're interested. A great place to go is the Dollar Store, they have lots of toy selections and they're not expensive. Here is a link to their site if you want to check it out: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/

    Happy Holidays!

    I love doing OCC. The first time I did it I got a post card thanking me from a family in Bosnia. My church is a pick up center for our region, and we always seem to collect around 2000 boxes. It is a very good thing to do. I always give a egg of silly putty, and cool sunglasses.

    That's cool! I was going to get silly putty and some cool sunglasses too! I'm also going to get some toy cars and such. They said not to buy war items like guns/knives and toy soldiers, which I can totally understand! Jeff said I should do two shoe boxes, one for a boy and girl, so I'll get the girl some jump rope and maybe some hair clips and dolls
