Free Craft

Here is a fun site a friend showed me that has free printable vintage paper dolls and clothes.  My friend referred me to it because she thought it was a good idea to print out and put in shoe boxes for Christmas Gifts for 'Samaritans Purse'.  If you have never heard of them before they are a charity organization that collect gifts from generous donors and distributes them overseas to children who have never had a gift at Christmas before.  The program is called 'Operation Christmas Child'.



The idea is that you fill an empty shoe box with gifts like, a piece of clothing, a toy to play with, a toiletry item, a toy to love like a bear or doll and something for school.  You also donate $7 to the cost of transporting the box overseas and can even track where your gift ends up.  It is a wonderful thing to do with the whole family and teaches your children about others who might not be as fortunate as they are.  There are many inexpensive items that can go in to fill a box and make another childs life a bit brighter.

You can become involved by reading more here on their website http://operationchristmaschild.org.au/
