UPDATED: Transition to Adulthood and Independent Living
[…] We started talking about Operation Christmas Child. We will be putting together 10 boxes at our next meeting. A sign up sheet was passed around for anyone wanting to donate items for the boxes. If you missed the meeting, no worries, everything will be put online so you can still sign up. Watch your e-mail for the sign up link. Need some ideas? Follow this link for 101 Shoebox Ideas. […]
DepED Child Protection Policy – What You Need to Know
Another idea…a world map! They’re FREE at AAA if you are a member and they are flat and compact so you can tuck it in on the side or lay it flat on the bottom. Or if you know where the box is going, include a map of the continent they live in. Every child should have a world map so they can see what is out there.
Also, cross-stitch threads for making friendship bracelets. They are super cheap at craft stores. Make one to send with the threads, not only will they get a special bracelet from you, they’ll hopefully understand what the threads are for.

I think this is an awesome idea….however we are stationed over seas. Is there a way someone like us can send boxes out to these children? I know a bunch of families that would love to participate in something like this. Please let me know so I can get the word out. Thanks a bunch! God Bless!
When Your Child Is a Psychopath - The Atlantic
-screwdriver, nail clippers, sewing kit, nails, or anything metal or really hard plastic with a sharp point or blade.
– playing cards (gambling is a big problem overseas so having possession of playing cards is a risk to the child) And only typical Ace, King, Jack etc. Kid’s playing cards like go fish or old maid that have cartoon pictures, not numbers are okay.
-American money is the BIGGEST no because the child will almost definitely have it stolen from them immediately and possibly violently.
-Also always wrap the lid and box separate and the best thing is really the plastic show bow containers.
