Operation Christmas Child

This week I'm working on putting together some children's shorts from McCall's Stitch and Save 5216.  It a pajama pattern, easily adapted to shorts by cutting off the length.  I'm making four pairs, two in a purple print for girls and two from the blue print for boys.  I don't know the recipient of these shorts, as they will be included in packages that we are putting together for the the relief organization Samaritan's Purse.   As part of their Operation Christmas Child campaign our family is packing four shoe boxes.   Shoe box destinations vary from year to year, and shoe box collection week is coming up in mid November.  Check out Samaritan's Purse  or Samaritan's Purse Canada for more information on how you can particpate in this project.
