Operation Christmas Child
 Practical gifts are so important. These children are thrilled to receive
items like toothbrushes, combs, and brushes. Some may have never had
their own before.
Simple items of clothing like t-shirts, socks, or a hat are wonderful
because some of the children may only own one shirt.
 School supplies like pencils, small tablets of paper, crayons, etc. are
great as sometimes children aren't allowed to attend school unless they
can provide their own supplies.
 Toys are great (and the children love them, too), but they shouldn't be
the biggest emphasis of the box.
 Only hard candy is allowed in the boxes. No chocolate or other food
can be shipped overseas. A little candy is fine, but practical gifts are best.
