Operational Christmas Child Shoe Box - This is so fun to do and it does as much for you as it does the recipient. NOT for the Bucket List, start now, the next time you go to any store, pick up something.
This operation christmas child packing list appears to be for Canada or some other country. Several items are allowed be sent from the US including toothpaste. My suggestion is to confirm items via Samaritan's Purse.
