Joy for Christmas
To make a child smile is priceless. We do that by giving the children we work with during the year, a gift for Christmas. It is a great opportunity to share the Gospel with the kids and the parents.
WHAT TO PUT IN THE BOX:
toys(small cars, balls, dolls, small stuffed animals, harmonicas, yo-yos, small Etch A Sketch®, Slinky, etc.,
school supplies( pens, pencils and sharpener, crayons or markers, coloring books, writing pads or paper, calculators, etc.
other( hard candy, lollipops, mints, gum, ball caps, socks, T-shirts, hair clips, watches, small picture books, stickers, etc.
DO NOT INCLUDE:
Used or damaged items; chocolate or food; liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans
HOW TO WRAP THE PACKAGE:
Put everything in a shoebox (standard size) or a small plastic container. Wrap it as a gift and place a label on the outside of the package if it is for a boy or girl and the child’s age category. Age categories: 2-4; 5-9; 10-14.
Please donate $6 or more with each package for shipping and customs charges. It is important for each of the box to get to Romania and to the child designated for. You can give cash, or you can write a check to My Brother’s Keeper (note “Christmas shoeboxes” on memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the gift box. If you or your family are preparing more than one shoe box, please make one combined donation.
Note: Please do not put the money inside the box and then wrap the box.
