This last week I received a generous donation from a lady in our church.  She and her husband were moving to a smaller house.  She has various collection and one of the items she has collected over the years is beanie babies.  Not having as much room in their new house, she parted with some of her collection (23!) and donated them to be used in Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. 
She has had a heart for shoe boxes for years and has encouraged me numerous times to keep up with promoting shoe boxes in our church.  Knowing that 23 children will have something soft to love on, is so awesome!  What a blessing!

Bouncy Balls

The party supply aisle is always a good place to find packages of multiples which work nicely in shoe boxes.  Last week I was able to find these bouncy balls on clearance at Wal-mart.  Regularly $2 for 6 balls, they were clearing these out for $1.  Which makes these .17 cents a piece.  Perfect to split between a few boxes.
