Welcome to Monday Matters. Spread awareness to help important causes and start your week off right by making a difference each Monday, even if that is just to pin, tweet, or share to pass this information on.It may seem early to start thinking about Christmas, but we just got our box for Operation Christmas Child so we can be sure to have it filled and ready to drop off the week of Nov 18- 25.
Have you heard of Operation Christmas Child?
You can easily make a child this happy!
Just fill a shoe box with small gifts, personal hygiene items, and school supplies, include the $7 donation for shipping, then go to Operation Christmas Child to find a drop off location near you.
One small gift, a simple token of love, can make a huge impact on a child’s life.
You can include a note and photo if you’d like and you can even track your box as it travels and see where it ends up!
There are tons more videos on the Samaritan’s Purse website and YouTube of kids receiving boxes and stories of lives changed. This is a great way to teach kids about giving in a way they can really be a part of and see the results!

Our church participates in this program as well. I bet the kids who receive these shoe boxes of goodies enjoy them. 🙂
