Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child fundraisers

The Samaritans Purse organisers are gearing up for their 2018 fundraisers starting off with Operation Christmas Child and their beautiful filled shoe boxes that are traditionally sent to children in areas of poverty in the South Pacific region. This year will see the New South Wales boxes sent to the Philippines and Cambodia.

There are always costs associated with such projects and in this case the primary cost is postage so the Samaritans Purse organisers aim to meet these costs by some fundraisers. Dates to put into your diaries to support the Operation Christmas Child project
