Did November roll around and you were getting excited about buying all those little goodies for a boy or girl?
Did the busy-ness of life come at you like all those Black Friday commercials and fliers and you missed the drop-off dates, or never got your purchases made?
Here is your chance to still participate and reach across the globe and spread Christmas cheer to a child in need.
If you want to still fill a box, there are 6 regional drop-off locations with dates as late as December 31, or the Samaritan’s Purse headquarters in Boone, NC which accept boxes year-round (I didn’t know that!!). You can personally deliver your box or ship it to the addresses listed by clicking the highlighted words above. Here are some photos from Boone, courtesy of my friend Kristan, whose husband works for Samritan's Purse. These boxes are on their way to Africa.
There is also another amazing and fun option:
For $30 you can go online and customize your box. Begin by selecting either a boy or girl and the age range for your particular shoe box. Select one of two featured toys, then four more toys to go in the box. You can choose two personal items that will be added to a bevy of essential s. Finally, upload a photograph and a personal note to your child. Pay and you are done. It’s that easy and doesn’t even require to change out of those yoga pants or brush your hair.
Are you looking for a gift that makes a difference. You can gift this option to another person and let them Build-A-Box.
Of course, there is always the Samaritan’s Purse GiftCatalog. You can buy anything from animals, to medicines, to a fishing boat and change a life – or many lives.
Many thanks to Samaritan’s Purse for giving me this opportunity to partner with them this Christmas season. I also want to thank them for the beautiful Christmas ornament I received at the Allume Social Conference in October. They were a generous and gracious sponsor of this event. Go show them some love.
How are you making a difference this Christmas season? Please tell me in the comments.
