Alright, it’s a little bit early to start thinking about Christmas, but Operation Christmas Child requires a little bit of early organisation.
The idea is simple shoeboxes filled with small gifts that give children who wouldn’t otherwise receive one a gift at Christmas. I’ve started saving my shoeboxes already and I’ll be getting them filled, buying a little here and there, to ensure they are ready to be dropped off at a local collection point early in November. It doesn’t cost as much as you’d think and I often use Boots points to buy some of the recommended items – so it doesn’t cost me a penny for those things.
