I know that Mom and Dad like doing things for other people (they are raising me, after all!). Though I take up much of their volunteer time, they find other ways to help out other people. Each year, they pack boxes for Operation Christmas Child. They fill a shoe box with goodies to ship off to kids around the world that would not otherwise get a Christmas present. Mom and I help collect the boxes at our church. This Sunday is the final collection day, so we needed to get our boxes done! I was pretty excited to help!
Mom and I did a little shopping last week, but I missed out on the bulk of it last night. It would have been fun too! Mom went with my most favoritest person! Bummer that I was still so sleepy!! I was so out of it after my vet visit that I couldn't stay awake for shopping. But, I got to help back boxes tonight!
First step: Read the directions.
Step 2: Find your shoe boxes
Step 3: Make them pretty!
Step 4: Gather your goodies
Step 5: Separate your stuff (we did a girl box and a boy box - ages 5-9 on each)
Step 6: Stuff your boxes
Step 7: Make sure the lid fits (sometimes, we need help from our friends on this one)
Step 8: Pay online, so we can track our packages and see where they end up!
Step 9: Feel good about doing something nice!
I can't wait to see where our boxes end up! I hope the kiddos enjoy the boxes as much as we did putting them together!
