I am 13 years into this program and I cannot say enough great things about it. I heard a story today about how a family, with a young boy, that lives in North Carolina had one of their boxes sent to a little girl in NC. The families met, they became friends and now many, many years later the two kids in this story are engaged to be married. How sweet is that. Giving in a selfless, heart filled way is one of the most precious acts I was taught by my parents and I can only pray that my children will learn this from me. The kids and I continue our tradition of giving to Operation Christmas Child along with a pastry and hot chocolate to celebrate and kick off the Season of Giving.
As the holidays creep up on us, I encourage you to do Random Acts of Christmas Kindness.
