CHECK OUT THE SLIDESHOW !
Yesterday, before I went to work, I went to North Carolina to the site where Reverend Graham and Samaritan’s Purse have their giant shoebox for children operation. It is nothing short of amazing! The space is 130,000 square feet so you can get an idea of the magnitude of the operation.
You would not believe how many shoeboxes of gifts are going out this year to needy children (9 million!) and you would not believe the enthusiasm and hard work of all the volunteers. Yes, I saw lots of the volunteers working yesterday, but they are only the tip of the iceberg. People from all over the world have been sending packed shoe boxes so that they can be part of this fun project. The volunteers in North Carolina carefully go through the boxes to make sure they are packed with appropriate items for children.
With the 9 million shoeboxes this year, the now total is 100 million gifts to needy children. If you want to learn more about this CLICK HERE.
And assuming no breaking news to hold me in Washington after Christmas, I am going overseas and help distribute some of the boxes. Last year I went to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. This year I am going to Equador.
