Samaritan's Purse gets shoe boxes to children by any means necessary.
Excited children open their shoe boxes to see what's inside.

Children across the world race to open their presents on Christmas Day. They readily tear off the wrapping paper of their new toys and gifts. But what about the children whose families can't afford to buy them anything for the Christmas season?
That's where Samaritan's Purse steps in. Samaritan's Purse founded Operation Christmas Child in 1993 to insure that no child goes without something for Christmas. Shoe boxes are collected all around the world and are sent to children in need all year long. These shoe boxes can include coloring books, school supplies, hygiene products, clothes and toys.
