More than 100 million shoeboxes have been given to kids in over 130 countries since Operation Christmas Child began in 1993. A shoebox gift from Operation Christmas Child tells a child in need that they are loved. Often kids will do The Greatest Journey and whole communities are transformed with education, clean water, improved health, farming training and more. It all begins with a shoebox! We call it the power of a simple gift.

“Every shoebox gift is an opportunity to touch a child’s heart with the love of Jesus Christ.” – Franklin Graham, International President of Samaritan’s Purse
Find an empty medium-sized shoe box, approximately 15 x 27 x 11 cm. Wrap the lid and box separately in colourful wrapping paper.
Determine if a boy or girl will receive your gift. Select the age of the child who will receive your box. Mark the label downloaded from our website and stick it on your box lid.
Fill the box with a variety of simple gifts that will bring delight to a child.
Donate online or put your cash or cheque donation in the envelope inside your shoebox, close the lid and secure with a strong rubber band. Your $9 donation is what makes Operation Christmas Child possible.
