Each year I encourage our family support at least one other child or family in our gift giving tradition.
I especially like the Samaritan's Purse Shoe Box program. We can choose the gender and general age of the child we are going to pack gifts for. My children include pictures they have drawn and it really gets us into the spirit of the season. If you want to support this amazing program, learn more about it and how to pack a shoe box.
Note: Many locations will want them filled and returned between November 14-21st to ensure it gets shipped and received on time.
