Hello MadeCreatively customers and fans! 2017 has begun and we’re already planning the themes for each of the 23 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes that we’re going to be filling and sending this year using the profits from our Packing Party products. Since 2014, we’ve been blessed to send 59 shoeboxes to reach children for Christ. Just like last year, those 23 shoeboxes will pack perfectly into one Samaritan’s Purse carton that we’ll be able to proudly say was made possible by our wonderful Packing Party customers! Thanks to you and your own packing parties, 23 additional children’s lives will forever change with the love, hope, Good News and great joy that comes with each shoebox gift.
Today we opened up our carton of red and green G.O. shoeboxes and folded 23 of them. Each box will have a theme that is uniquely its own and here is a sneak peek of list of the themes!
