Smile Pack Christmas Shopping


Posted on: November 27, 2012

Our kids are learning how to be generous disciples of Jesus in the real world by completing 12 “Smile Packs” to send overseas this winter. To do this we are partnering with Children of the Nations International to help support children in Sierra Leone, Malawi, Uganda, Haiti, Liberia, and here in the United States. Together our kids need to raise a total of $60 and to bring in the NEW needed items listed below.

Smile Pack Shopping List

  • 1 toothbrush (single packaged)
  • 1 toothpaste (6 oz)
  • 1 small pack of adhesive bandages (15-20 count)
  • 1 bottle of shampoo (12 oz)
  • 1 comb or brush
  • 1 washcloth
  • 1 hand towel
  • 3 bars of soap
  • $5.00 per Smile Pack (check payable to COTN) to cover the cost of shipping and other program costs

Next week, we will have our R.E.A.L. KIDS Christmas tree located near the R.E.A.L. KIDS check-in area. It will be completely decorated with paper Hygiene Ornaments. Your child will receive a real ornament to replace the paper hygiene ornaments as the hygiene items are brought in. The kids will slowly decorate our tree as we reach our goal. I’m praying that this will be a fun-filled learning experiencec for your family to embrace!

Do as little or as much as you’d like. When we complete our goal, we will plan a Smile Pack Sunday to pack, pray and celebrate how God can use us to provide for families in need in our world.
