Octavia_Melody2 posted a topic in General DiscussionIn light of all these devastating recent events, I just wanted to post about one of my favorite charities, Samaritan's Purse International Relief. Samaritan's Purse provides disaster and medical relief all over the world, including the hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico, Texas, and Florida. Click on the link below to donate: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/donation-items/hurricane-relief-general/ I've also included a link to Global Giving for Mexico Earthquake Relief and the Gofundme page for victims of the Las Vegas shooting: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/mexico-earthquake-relief-fund/ https://www.gofundme.com/dr2ks2-las-vegas-victims-fund Another Samaritan's Purse project I wanted to talk about is one they do every year around Christmas called Operation Christmas Child (OCC). OCC is a project in which donors fill shoebox-sized boxes with toys, school supplies, and practical items. These boxes are distributed around the world to needy children living in impoverished countries who might otherwise not receive anything at all. https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/what-goes-in-my-shoebox-suggestions/ Please consider giving and show your support. And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. - Matthew 25:40 (KJV)
Okay so I'm participating in this gift sending thing my church has never done before but I've participated once before back in the third grade because my teacher had done missionary work at the time. Anyway, I'm thinking of buying a pony toy (the gift box I'm sending will be for a little girl in the age group of 5 years old to 9 years old and it needs to be small enough to fit inside a shoebox so it and any other items I put in this can be safely shipped to the country where this child lives. This of course being a child in a developing country) Anyway, I'm open to suggestions Thanks
