Free Shipping at Oriental Trading!

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:

Make-A-Story Bible Stickers

Cross Bookmarks

Coloring Books

Color Scratch Crosses

Temporary Tattoos

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!

YESSSS!!!!! I pretty much ordered what you gave the links to as well as the boxes... $19.96 total for one set of each. Totally worth it!
Thank you for the heads up! :)

Thinking about getting a couple of these, they look neat and foldable. We could cover our whole family with this. :) And you can't beat the price!|0&Ipp=16&N=388782+1604&No=0&sd=Honeycomb+Accordion+Album

Felt is flat and flexible, like paper, but a little thicker. Do you think it would go through? I have an idea... Actually it was my daughter's idea. :-)

Thanks for stopping by our blog. We are excited about getting to know our sponsor child! Great ideas for things to send. I'll have to keep OT in mind.

Amy, felt and fabric will not go through, from what I have heard. I think this code is good through Monday, but I am not 100% sure.
