Operation Christmas Child!

Want to experience such overwhelming joy and anticipation and excitement over a charitable act--Pack a SHOEBOX!!
It was such a pleasure to share in this activity with each of my children:  
Kalliope helped do the shopping, Leo and Ava the sorting and packing, and Maximus the sampling ... Either way, they each touched, inspired and enthused love some way or another into each of these 12 shoeboxes we packed together to donate to 
I LOVE lessons in giving with the kids, especially when they do so with loving, open hearts and joyful spirits :)  Thanks to Jessica Burns, one of my dearest friends and creator of Clip with Purpose Blog, who is very outspoken and involved with OCC all throughout the year.  IN January she encouraged her fans to pledge shoeboxes for OCC, and the kids and I came up with 12, one for each month.  There is still time to participate in this easy, breezy giving to others with your children or even solo :)  The drop off for boxes is this week November 14-21!  Enjoy!
