Some of you know my girl Amelia, but for those of you who don’t, I’d like to introduce you to my all-time-favorite-just-turned-eight-year-old who happily (sometimes) blogs for me regarding her thoughts on giving.
Keeping up with her annual tradition, Amelia joined her BFF's family (Thank you Miss Debbie!) in stuffing shoeboxes full of goodies. This upcoming week is National Collection week for Operation Christmas Child. If you haven't participated in Operation Chritmas Child, this is the year to start! It is a fun and easy way to get your kids involved in giving. Here’s what Amelia and Masen had to say about their experience this year:
This is my friend Masen on the left side. We were being silly with dino heads. Some people don’t have food or water or maybe not even a house. So we are giving to people shoeboxes with toys, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair things, and candy. Love, Amelia
ps now here is Masen
I realized that it is good to give for Christmas. I wouldn’t like to get a bar of soap. I like going shopping so that I can give them a good present. I am thankful for what I have. Love, Masen
