Operation Christmas Child
#1
Cool 
Operation Christmas Child(OCC) is a project by Samaritan’s Purse where you fill a shoebox with things for a boy or girl, drop it off at a receiving location(w/ $10 for their costs, etc.), and then they will deliver those boxes all over the world as Christmas gifts for children, and tell them about Jesus! Shoebox Collection Week is going on NOW(Nov 14-21, 2022), but you can build a Shoebox online anytime of the year! We celebrate the birth of Jesus for Christmas, and I think this is just a very awesome way to push the gospel forward! Has anyone else ever heard of this? Oh, yeah, and a piece of art I did, the boxes Shadow's carrying is supposed to resemble the OCC shoeboxes. Undecided

I know this is from last year but this is really important! If you have the ability, please brighten a child's day by giving gifts that they normally wouldn't get.

Yes, it is! Thanks for bringing that up, NeoMetallix! Idea Although National Collection Week has ended for this year, if anyone builds online before Dec. 31, it still counts toward this year's total!

Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Cream are all gathered around Tails' computer to fill some shoebox(es) too! Looks like what Tails' intended to be a "secret" mission became a fun event with his friends! (and he's totally okay with that)

I created a page on Samaritan’s Purse website with a goal to fill 10 boxes by Dec. 31, adding them to this year’s total! If you’d like to participate in this mission, visit the page HERE! I know we can do it! Smile

This is really cool I hope everyone gets an unfortunate kid a gift. I partner with my local charity to give boxes with essentials and toys to kids.
