The Woman Who Loved Shoe Boxes: Thinking Inside the Box
What could a person give to a child who has lost everything? The answer is—a shoe box. An organization called “Samaritan’s Purse” has a project called “Operation Christmas Child.” Samaritan’s Purse collects shoe boxes filled with toys and other items, and they distribute those boxes all over the world to children who are either very poor or who have lived through tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, or other tragedies. For the children receiving the shoeboxes, it might be the only Christmas present they’ll receive. If you have some time and a desire to fill a shoe box with toys, books, and other items that children love, you can be a blessing to a child somewhere in the world. I know a woman who has been a blessing to many. This book is about that lady.
