Shoe Boxes Filled With Love
It may seem a little too early to be wrapping presents for Christmas but the power of a simple gift was given by children this week. They filled colourfully wrapped shoe boxes with small presents. These were toys, soaps, tooth brushes, warm clothes and (most importantly!) love. The boxes will be transported to families and the elderly around the world, who will otherwise have nothing for Christmas this year, by the organisation Link to Hope. We talked to the children about giving good toys from their own bedrooms rather than buying all of the presents so that they realised the power of giving. And we made sure that the boxes had a whole heap of love in them too!
