Host an Operation Christmas Child Packing Party

Posted by  | November 4, 2010  at 1:29 PM  

There’s nothing like opening a new shoebox and glancing down at a fresh pair of stilettos that have yet to be marred by city sidewalks and sudden downpours. As time passes, though, so does that new stiletto thrill, and more often than not that same magical shoebox is tossed aside or trashed. But for a less fortunate child, a shoebox from Operation Christmas Child (OCC), can hold items that are much more magical than any pair of Manolos.

OCC is a Samaritan’s Purse project that delivers goody-filled shoeboxes to children around the world. You’ll also be able to track your shoeboxes to see where they go, and I think it’s safe to say that your shoebox will cover far more miles than your stilettos ever will. Collection week runs November 15-22, so if you don’t have any extra shoeboxes I think this is an excellent excuse to acquire a new one, right? Participating in OCC takes only 5 steps that, truth be told, are probably easier than walking in 5 inch heels.


1. Find a shoebox

2. Figure out if your box is for a boy or girl

3. Fill ‘er up!

4. Include a $7 donation

5. Find a drop off location by clicking here.

I will be hosting my own "Champagne & Shoeboxes" packing party next Saturday--I reorganized my shoe collection and have tons of empty boxes that need re-purposed! My goal is to pack at least 12 boxes for girls in the 10-14 range. So far I've found some great items on sale and have a few more tricks up my sleeve (i.e. mini friendship bracelet kits). If you have any ideas or know of any businesses that would like to donate some goodies, send me an email  (richele@prettyinthepanhandle.com) or leave a comment below. Also, if you host or attend a packing party, send me pictures and I'll post them on the site!

Thank you so much for supporting Operation Christmas Child! I'm a recording artist, and I made a video to tell all of my fans how they can participate as well. :)
