To Give a Smile on Christmas & Giveaway

[My spectacular team for the Operation Christmas Child party!]


See how Operation Christmas Child (OCC) gives children smiles and joy on Christmas!  Are you receiving a gift on Christmas ? Did you know some children will not, and some may not have without OCC.  I bet you knew that but hadn't thought of yourself in that situation. I thank God for organizations which He leads to give children love through gifts during Christmas. These children who receive these gifts may be in situations where they don't feel like anyone loves them... but when they receive a gift from a stranger, it shows them that they are loved, by God and even by strangers who they have never met!

What did I do? I joined a my college's Intervarsity Christian Fellowship club in their Operation Christmas Child party!  Imagine a hoard of college students splitting into groups then stampeding all to the same store to purchase lots of gifts to pack in shoe boxes to strangers across the world.  Except, these kids are not strangers because they are brothers and sisters in Christ! Well, that's what we did! See below!

The 3:00 mark in the video below warmed my heart. ^_^  Feel free to watch more, there are links at the end!



First, be lured in by our adventure!
Safra, whom you met last week!
Charm Bracelet | RMS
Fried Chicken... they were hungry I suppose.
 Ooooh! Look at the books they found!
These are our boxes of gifts! What a dynamic group I was in.  Oh look, of course I am in the center overly dramatic... haha... I'll blame it on my years of being on stage. Yes, that works. >.<

Second, watch another video about OCC !

Third, join Safra and me in a basic swing dance!
I just love this photo. Action shots are always the best photos, I think.

Fourth, Packing Party!
Meet the other Christine! We play patty cake like no other.
Fellow OCCers, diligently making a package to bring a smile and love!

Fifth, what I wore...
Tunic | Free People    Bracelet | RMS    Clutch | Target


Sixth, be sure to enter my International Giveaway!


Thank you for sharing in this adventure with me! :) I hope you can follow along with me!  God bless always and happy 4th week of Advent y'all. Be sure to leave me a comment below!

Affectionately,
Christine
