It’s been a busy few weeks at work.
Today has been the culmination of many weeks of Sonshine FM’s Operation Christmas Child. The initiative sees shoeboxes being packed with simple toys and other items to be distributed to suffering children overseas via aid agency Samaritan’s Purse.
I wrote a previous post about it all here.
It was wonderful to reach a tally of 3240 shoeboxes which was well over 700 more than our target of 2500. Even now more boxes are arriving.
Here’s a picture of some of the staff at Sonshine FM surrounded by some of the boxes. My head is poking out over the top of the boxes down the back.
Due to the generosity of many hundreds of listeners we’ve built a mountain of colourful shoeboxes. Wandering around amongst that mountain it’s hard to imagine that each of those boxes will give new hope to a child who’s suffering and may have lost hope.
I look forward to hearing all the stories that come back about the many little lives that will be reached because so many people cared enough to give of their time, their finances and most of all their love for children that they’ll probably never even meet.
