Pack a Shoebox with Si Robertson

Operation Christmas ChildEveryone knows that I am a huge Duck Dynasty fan.  I’m also a huge advocate of Samaritan’s Purse and in particular the Operation Christmas Child shoebox campaign they do every year.  Bringing JOY to a child at Christmas!

Fill your shoebox with a well-balanced variety of items from the following categories:

  • School Supplies – Items such as pencils, pens, pencil crayons, note pads, and picture books
  • Toys & Other Gifts – Items such as stuffed animals, small musical instruments, hair clips, toy jewelry, t-shirts, socks, and candy (loose, individually wrapped hard candy in a sealable bag)
  • Hygiene Items  – Please place soap in a sealable bag
  • Personal Note  – Include a personal note and/or a photo in your shoebox (not inside the donation envelope)

Do not include:

  • Toothpaste (due to customs regulations)
  • Food and any chewy, crumbly, or soft candy: Including gum (due to customs regulations)
  • Used items (due to customs regulations)
  • Playing cards (other card games such as UNO are allowed)
  • Liquids or items that could leak, melt, freeze, or break – Shampoo, creams, lip balm, bath gels, mirrors, or glass, etc. (these can damage other items in the shoe box).
  • Items that can scare or harm a child – War-related toys, knives, and toy guns, etc.

But hey…

Watch this short video and see how Uncle Si packs a shoebox and then, hey…”PACK A SHOEBOX, JACK!” 🙂

    also being a duck dynasty fan – I thot this was great – as well my daughter had gone to deliver the shoeboxes eight years ago as a fulfillment of a childhood dream! Your blog today was a double winner with me!
