News Please Give to Earthquake/Hurricane Relief and Operation Christmas Child

Recommended Posts

In 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.

I've also included a link to Global Giving for Mexico Earthquake Relief and the Gofundme page for victims of the Las Vegas shooting:

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.

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)

I did give $15 when Harvey struck to Operation Blessing (a charity ran by Christian Broadcasting Network founder Pat Robertson, that has a really good track record of response time and action, as well as using 98% of its donations towards its causes), and I would give more if I wasn't limited on cash.

The Christmas Child does look very interesting. We got something in the mail about it, and I'd love to do it. Perhaps I will get that in soon! :)

Thanks! :grin: I've been doing shoeboxes for a few years now and really believe it's important to give something to kids in places where they have almost literally nothing. I'm also a fan of Operation Blessing and the work they do. God bless!
