A friend called me this morning to tell me she is placing an order at Oriental Trading and offered to buy a dozen of the boxes I posted below. I went to the site to take a second look at the size of the boxes and plan how to personalize them when I noticed a Free Shipping banner on the top of the page. Use the code FREENOV at checkout to get free shipping!
They have a lot of great items that you could send to your Compassion International children. If you look in the Fun & Faith section, you will find a huge assortment of craft items like:
There are MANY more items to choose from.
Some things to consider when deciding what items to send to your child: The things you send have to be paper, cardstock, cardboard, etc. You cannot send wood, crayons, metal, foam (from what I hear), or anything that isn’t flat. If you send something that Compassion cannot send through, they will contact you to see if they can donate it to their local Operation Christmas Child collection.
Many of the items for sale at Oriental Trading come in multiples. You could send several of the same item to your child and ask that they share with siblings or those in their projects who do not get mail.
If you purchase some items to send your Compassion International child, please leave a comment to let us know what you picked!
