Affinity4 Launches Operation Christmas Child Holiday Promotion
More about Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is the largest children's Christmas project in the world, run by the Christian charity Samaritan's Purse. In 2010, the organization celebrates 20 years of this special shoebox appeal, which has already brought joy into the lives of over 80 million children worldwide.
In its simplest form, it is all about a gift – given by an individual to a child in need. The contributor wraps and packs it, the organization checks and sends it, and Operational Christmas Child’s partners overseas deliver it. It’s that simple.
Last year, over 500,000 people from across the UK and Ireland got involved - including many churches, schools and workplaces. Children and adults alike wrapped and packed almost 1.2 million shoeboxes (from the UK) and over 200,000 (from Ireland) full of gifts and goodies, which were then sent to orphans and vulnerable children living in often difficult circumstances overseas.
