A little while ago, I posted about Operation Christmas Child and what a wonderful cause it is. Their collection week is over, but one of my friends found a way to donate a massive amount of boxes easily. So, a bunch of us got together this past Sunday and packed boxes.
We wrapped them out with colorful wrapping paper and started packing! There was a big variety of items like plushes, pencils, pens, barbie dolls, purses, lots of jewelry, little toys and even some clothes. Check out this awesome box! This is good enough for 2 girls!
Of course, we are not all neat like that. We have some boxes that were more eclectic. I think it's still good! There's a lot of stuf in there!
Look at these stacks! It only took about 2.5 hours.
Don't I look proud? I really enjoyed packing these boxes. It feels good to do something so meaningful and productive with friends. Next year, I am going to try to do it again!
I hope you and your friends can get together, have a good time and pack up some boxes too! You don't have to wrap them if you don't want to. Just pack them up with fun stuff and it'll be greatly appreciated!
Remember, you can send completed boxes year-round to their headquarters:
