Sorry I took so long to write a blog entry. I'm just too busy. I have school, football, Italian lesson, friends, karate, church, helping girls in soccer practice and walking Scratch. I'm just way too busy.
All year long I have been saving up my Jesus money and I finally used it for Samaritan's Purse. I bought things that children who don't have anything need. And we put them in shoeboxes and wrapped them up.
We put things like toothpaste, toothbrush, toys like balls, Spiderman disc shooters, little stuffed animals (not as big as my dog), dolls, jump ropes and a few other things. Somethings were for girls and somethings were for boys (for sure the dolls were for girls.) I did two boxes for girls and two boxes for boys.
It was fun getting all the stuff with my money. We went to the 99¢ Store. Me and my gramma wrapped the shoe boxes in Christmas wrapping.
I put a note and a picture inside each of the boxes.
After we got it done, we took the shoe boxes to the Mail Boxes Etc. store. They were collecting them so they could mail them to Samaritan's Purse.
Last year I helped Ethiopia and Alaska. Here's a link to what I wrote then The Meaning of Christmas.
I really like Samaritan's Purse. I have a good friend that I have never seen before-Franklin Graham. He is very nice. Please send things to people who need them. Jesus will really like that.
Ho, Ho, Ho--Merry Christmas.
