Each year, my boys help me pick out goodies to fill our boxes to send to kids that live all over the world. You can pick either a boy or girl along with their age group. We like to pick kids that are the same age as our kids.
If you have never participated, you can find ideas for what to put inside along with how to pack the shoebox on their website. I like to hit the dollar stores for small toys along with checking my stockpile for soaps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, crayons, pencils, etc. You can have the kids draw a picture and a put a photo of them in the box, too! Anything you do will make a difference to these kids!
You can even wrap your box. Just make sure that you wrap the lid and box separately. Also, be sure to include a $7 donation to help cover the shipping cost!
Now, that you have your box and it is packed and ready to go. Bring your box back on November 12, 2011 from 10am-1pm for a Free Chicken Sandwich!
