I am collecting items to fill 1,000 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child this year, as part of my 5,000 Shoebox Youth Challenge. I have been going to different stores, hotels, and businesses asking for donations. I also used some of the money I had already raised to help get me started. So far I think I am doing really good. What do you think?
Each time I get more stuff I will update the amount here. My mom calls this math.
If I could send my shoebox anywhere in the world, I would send it to Nepal or Haiti. I would send the box to Nepal because they had a bad earthquake and many people lost everything they had. If I received a shoebox filled with a teddy bear, toothbrush, toothpaste, hair brush, some clothes and toys after I lost everything, it would make me really, really, really, happy. I would also like to send a shoebox to Haiti because I know the people are poor and do not have a lot, so I think they would also be happy to receive the gift.
I would love to hear what you like to put in your shoeboxes. Will you comment below and let me know? HAHA! That rhymed.
