I think this is a great way to be able to make someone smile. Even though I won't be able to see the time they receive the gift, I know that the shoebox I packed is in the hands of an awesome child. This has been a project that I have loved participating in. While this may not be the type of thing for everyone to do, I encourage you to take a look at their website for more information.
If you are interested, take a look at the website also to see what you need to do to get that shoebox packed! There are a few things that you can pack that you are bound to have at home, and additional items won't cost too much! There will be a shipping cost but it isn't too expensive. You will also need to find a collection center near your home so that your shoebox can be shipped.

Here is a bible verse that I really like. This is something I like to remember when doing things like these, that I'm doing it for the right reasons: Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7
And here's a "throwback thursday" to 2010 with all the shoeboxes at my church waiting to be filled!
