Operation Christmas Child


SHARE THE POWER OF A SIMPLE GIFT!

Girl Guides have the opportunity to take part in an
International Community Service Project!  We will be
collecting items for Operation Christmas Child's shoebox gift.
We will aim to send at least one box per Girl Guide Unit...
depending on how many items we collect.

Millions of underprivileged  children around the world have
experienced the joy of receiving an Operation Christmas Child
shoebox gift.  We can help make a difference in a child's life! 

Canada has collected 75,000 shoe boxes for Haiti alone in 2011.
Think about how we can help make an  impact in the lives of 
children in Haiti and around the world.

  1. Hi,

    I'm already starting to plan my meetings for next year, and was wondering how you went about getting crests for doing this. We usually try to do some kind of service project around Christmas/early winter and I think this would be a great one!

    Thanks :)
