Operation Christmas Child is a ministry by Samaritan's Purse - Franklin Graham's charitable organization. Samaritan's Purse takes the shoeboxes that people put together into countries all across the world to children who typically don't receive Christmas presents. The boxes are shared freely with children in whole villages. Along with the boxes, children receive a book and a class with the Gospel Message. Samaritan's Purse states that one shoebox impacts up to 11 people. The Gospel message is going out through the world.
