Operation Christmas Child, a worldwide children’s project that uses simple gift-filled shoe boxes to let impoverished boys and girls know that they are loved and not forgotten. Operation Christmas Child began in the United States in 1993 with 28,000 shoe box gifts. Since then, it has collected and hand-delivered more than 100 million shoe box gifts to needy children in more than 130 countries. Children in the snowbound Himalayas to the war town streets of Baghdad, will realize the power of a simple gift that brings joy and hope.
