Recently we did Operation Christmas Child. We used shoe boxes to make gift boxes. Many people donated items like hygeine products, blankets and warm cloths, and toys. Toy include small cars, balls, stuffed animals, yo-yos, jump ropes, small etch and schetch, slinky, hard candy, lolipops, mints, gum, tshirts, socks, sunglasses, hairclips, toy jewelery, watches, pens, pencils and sharperner, crayons, markers, stamps and ink pad, writing pads or paper, coloring books, picture books, shoe boxes, wrapping paper, and cash for shipping.
“I think it is a good idea because the who don’t get presents will finally see the glory of the christmas presents and God!” said Avery.
We had a contest to see which class could collect the most items.
“I think it’s a good idea but I don’t like the competion.” says Emily of the human intrest group.
“I think that this is a good idea to share with the needy,” says Peter of the human intrest group.
“I think it’s a good idea because kids need to learn what Christmas is really about!” says Jade of the edit tourials group.
“ I think this is a good idea because we can share the joy of christmas with other children not just through the presents but through giving as well.” Says Christina of the edit tourials group.
It’s good to share even in a small way like this.
