Operation Christmas Child

http://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
Most of us here in America, take it for granted that we'll have some sort of Christmas celebration with presents.  Shockingly, that's becoming more difficult here, and without outside help, for millions others in the world just not a reality.  That brings us to Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization that has helped countless millions in so many ways.

Since it's November, their push is to gather as many of their now famous Shoeboxes, filled with the gifts anonymous gifters have filled them with, and distribute them to children around the world.  It's a massive undertaking, but
every year they gather these amazing boxes and get them distributed to children who would have no Christmas were it not for the generosity of strangers.  If you've ever wondered how you could impact the lives of children, or help in some small way, this is the perfect opportunity.  Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 100 million gift-filled
shoeboxes to children in more than 100 countries. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Operation Christmas Child expects to collect another 9.8 million shoebox gifts in 2013.
