not about me

Its been a hectic week here but this post is not about that
it is about operation christmas child
i don't know how many of you know about this but it is basically about sending
children who have very little a shoe box full of gifts !!

we try each year to send at least 2 boxes into school from there it is collected and sent to children with nothing

This year i am planning to fill at least 6 boxes hopefully 10 boxes

I feel very lucky that we can afford for Chrissy to leave work and go to uni
and that my children will get the presents they want , dont get me wrong they are no way spoilt
and life is a bit of a struggle but when i see what we do have i feel so very lucky !!

So if you feel you can fill a shoe box or 2 just
go here for more info !!

This is a worthy cause. My Mum has been doing this through her church for a few years now. All the best with it and I hope you reach your target.

Ooh good move! We usually do this through kidlet's school but the leaflet never seems to appear until there's only a few days to get the box(es) sorted. Now I can use your link and collect stuff together more gradually. Maybe I'll manage more this year. Thanks mate.
