Pack an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Online!

Pack a shoebox online!
 
I thought this might interest some of you. I know that over 30 of you have packed shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child this year already, which is brilliant. I know there is also still time to do so, as Mrs Tame is collecting till the start of December. However, with the lockdown on, I haven't managed to shop for bits for a shoebox, and am cross as I would usually make up a box and I hate that I haven't managed to do so.
 
 
However, I just found out that you can 'pack a shoebox online'! It's really easy - I just did mine and it took me about five minutes. You still choose gender and age you want the box to be for, then you select items to go in it - some essential, some small, some large - and you can even attach a photo of you and a message, just like a physical box. It costs £20; £15 for the items and the £5 postage cost. I am so pleased I haven't missed sending a box this year - so here is the link in case you'd like to do this too!
