Last year little one helped pack the shoe boxes with things that I had purchased. However, I wanted to teach him the importance of giving to those less fortunate, and have him fully involved in selecting toys for another child. So we set off to shop, and I told him that we weren’t shopping for him, and that we were going to fill shoe boxes for poor children. So before going into the store (he’s going to pack two shoe boxes ages 2-4) this was our conversation:
After months of planning, preparing, and praying we have finally tallied up our shoe boxes: 15 in total! What a blessing! It has been a joy seeing these empty shoe boxes come together. 15 shoe boxes, 15 lives for ever changed! The shoe boxes and the contents of what we packed can be found here.
