They teamed up with Operation Christmas Child to fill shoeboxes with toys, school supplies and hygiene products. Those boxes will be delivered to children in over 100 countries.

“For the children here I hope they understand the importance of giving and that there is so much need,” said Rebecca Parker-Moore, with Operation Christmas Child. “By packing a simple gift filled shoebox they are able to help a child their age somewhere in the world.”
