Mission Statement

Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan's Purse, is the world's largest Christmas project of its kind. Samaritan's Purse works to meet critical spiritual and physical needs. In addition to providing clean water, health care and food, Operation Christmas Child addresses a need for which children are just as desperate - the need to have hope and feel loved.

Description

Operation Christmas Child is a kids-helping-kids project that uses simple gift-filled shoeboxes to let hurting children know that they are loved and not forgotten. Kids and families pack empty shoeboxes with simple items most people take for granted, including toothpaste, toys and school supplies. the shoeboxes are then delivered to hurting children around the world - using whatever means necessary to deliver them - sea containers, helicopters and even elephants. In 2010, Operation Christmas Child will reach more than 8.5 million children in over 130 countries.
