Operation Christmas, an outreach of Samaritan's Purse founded by Franklin Graham is a project where a family would buy small necessary hygiene items and small fun toys to fill a shoebox and turn the shoeboxes in at a designated time in late October/early November.
There activities that children can do to customize their boxes (i.e. decorate, "all about me" sheets, etc), that fun for the children to include in their shoeboxes. Often, shoebox recipients will send letters back to children/families that donate if they (donators) voluntarily include letter, pictures, and addresses inside the filled boxes.
This is also a great geography lesson to a certain degree, as we can give examples of the countries that have received the shoeboxes in the past. I have also been part of a distribution site in Honduras that was very inspiring and humbling. Please consider participating in this outreach opportunity as individuals, families, businesses, classrooms, or civic organizations. Please contact Lee Cook at (205)914-1650 or email@example.com
