As a project of Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child has become the world’s largest children’s Christmas project. Over the years, we have learned that the joy of giving is a central part of the foundation upon which Operation Christmas Child is built. We want you to know how important your role has been in building this foundation, because without your efforts it would not be possible to make a lasting impact in the lives of so many needy children around the world each year. Last year, Canadians alone packed over 730,000 gift filled shoe boxes to send to children around the world!

There are several fun and easy ways for you to get involved in promoting Operation Christmas Child, and whether you’re from a radio station, TV station, publication, blogger or even an OOH specialist, we’ll have media kits and creative ready for you in the coming weeks!


DUE TO CUSTOMS REGULATIONS – PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE ANY CANDY IN CANADIAN SHOEBOXES – When you’re packing gift-filled Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes this year, please leave out candy or any type of food – and fill the extra space with more school supplies, hygiene items, and/or toys.
