Operation Christmas Child and a Si Robertson quote

The school which our girls attend has adopted Operation Christmas Child through Samaritans Purse as their community outreach project this Christmas. The program provides a shoe box sized gift box to children ages 2 - 14 around the world.

We decided to take home 2 shoe boxes, one for each girl to fill. My girls were very excited when I told them we were going to fill it with toys, and goodies. It took them a moment to process the next part, which was, and then we will put it in the mail so that another child who does not have many toys will receive it for Christmas. Both girls said hurray, and then about 5 seconds later LeiLei turned around and shot me a "What you talkin about Willis" look. It was hard not to laugh. Then I had to go into the pre-school age conversation about how not everyone has lots of goodies like we do. We are very fortunate to have so much, and since we do, we need to make sure we also share.

I checked out their website to make sure it was an organization I wanted our family to give to. Imagine my surprise when on the front page was a photo of Si Robertson. If you read my Duck Dynasty post, you know I am a fan...

“Look here, this is Si Robertson, all right? Hey, Jack, share your love by packing a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child, okay?”
