Back to School $10 Challenge: Operation Christmas Child



It’s “Back to School” season and sales are in the air! Moms are grabbing up the great deals like a kid in a candy sale. Are you one of them?

This year as you’re cruising the back-to-school sales, the Samaritan’s Purse Bloggers would like to issue a challenge to you. While you’re out and about, we want to challenge you to think ahead and shop for your Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. What better time to stock up on things like pencils and pencil sharpeners than right now?

So we have a challenge. Our challenge is two-fold.

~ Will you commit to devoting ten dollars of your back-to-school shopping for your Operation Christmas Child shoebox?

~ How far can you stretch that ten dollars with the back-to-school sales?

Throughout the month of August–shop, save, and store up your shoebox items. At the end of the month, on August 28th, the Samaritan’s Purse Bloggers will host a joint link-up across their blogs for you to share a post about your back-to-school finds. We hope you will join us!
