Share God’s love with a hurting child overseas, without even leaving your home.

Pack a box for a child in need

Now more than ever, children need great joy!

You can give boys and girls in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox packed from your computer or handheld device. In just a few clicks, you can select toys and other fun items to include as well as a letter and photo to delight the heart of a child.

After we pack and ship shoeboxes like yours overseas, local believers share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children as they distribute them. As a result, families are reached, new churches are started, and communities are transformed. It all begins with you. Pack a shoebox online today!

Do even more with a Goal Page

Every Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift is an opportunity to share the message of Jesus Christ with a boy or girl around the world. A goal page allows your friends and family to create their own campaigns alongside you to help you reach your goal!

In a few easy steps, you can create a custom webpage for your church, group, or event in order to track your progress toward a shoebox goal. Once you’re set up, you’ll receive a unique page link to share by email or on social media. Spread the word, pray, and watch the goal tracker grow!

Discover the destination of your online shoebox gift

When you choose the option of “Pack a Box for Me,” you can also choose to “Follow Your Shoebox.” You will receive an email when we know the country where your shoebox(es) will be sent.

You will get to see how shoebox gifts make an amazing difference in the lives of children in that country, opening the door for them to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. Destination countries are chosen and announced in late December.

God is using Shoebox Gifts to Transform Communities Around the Globe

“Every shoebox gift is an opportunity to reach a child with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s about telling children around the world and their families that God loves them. He hasn’t forgotten them. We’re taking the Good News to the ends of the earth and doing it through a shoebox.”

-Franklin Graham, President & CEO, Samaritan’s Purse

All across the globe, churches are being started as our local ministry partners share the Gospel through evangelistic outreach events and The Greatest Journey discipleship program.
