        Go to Samaritanspurse(dot)org and look there.  They have instructions for what you can/cannot put in a box.  Samaritan’s Purse is a great charity to be involved with.  My Mom packed 25 boxes this year and my sister packed 18.  I just pay the postage for them and give them the freebie toothbrushes, toothpaste and pencils, etc.  .

      Lego Gift Toy Freebie!  Target has gift cards with 48 piece Lego sets attached with no extra fees.  If you see these, put $5.00 on the gift card and then take the gift card off the back when you get home (use it for yourself, teacher etc).  The Lego Set in in a nice little plastic box decorated for Christmas and can be made into one of three simple sets-a snowman, dog or bear (instructions without words are included.)  I put this Lego set in my Operation Christmas Child box for boy ages 5-9.  My 7 year old son loved it himself so I know another little boy somewhere around the world will be delighted with this and his other gifts in the box:)

      Jenny I love when you post about donations around this time of year. The world needs more people like you who want to help others. God Bless!

      Just a heads up – Check out your Office Depot stores, I hit a clearance and picked up .22 kids scissors, .24 for a pack of 20 silly bands, .34 Scholastic felt tip markers, .50 Kleenex Wet Wipes all these are great for Christmas boxes.
