What happens next?

After the cake is eaten and the balloons are popped, your gifts are just beginning to go to work bringing nutrition, medical help, clean water, and more to needy children around our globe.

1) Within two weeks, please fill in the form in the catalog and mail us a check. Or, if you want to place your order online, click here.

2) Please send the box to Operation Christmas Child. See instructions below.

3) Be a Birthday Ambassador
Your birthday probably raised more than $100 for poor and hungry kids. Guess what?? You can double, triple, or even quadruple that amount! Here’s how:

A) Ask your church staff to contact us at Miles of Smiles. We’ll send flyers to your church so they can distribute them to kids in your area. Those kids might host their own party, helping dozens of more birthday children at home and around the world.

Click here to request flyers.

B) Have your parents end us a photo and a few sentences about how you felt about your party. We’ll post them to our Stars page. Click here.

Email the link to your friends and relatives to show them what you did.

C) With your parents, write a news story about your birthday party. Send the story and a few photos taken at your party to your local newspaper or to your church or school newsletter to be published. It’s simple to write a story; see the sample Linnea wrote about her party (Click here). Talk to your friends’ parents to get permission to run their photo or quote and don’t use last names. If you get published, we’d love to know: info@mosbb.org

THANK YOU for spreading the news and the joy. You are a STAR!

How to Pack a Box for Operation Christmas Child

1. Turn one box from the Miles of Smiles Birthday Box kit inside-out so that the box has its Christmas colors on the outside.

2. Fill it with the unwrapped gifts the children brought. If the box is not full of delights, feel free to add more toys, socks, pencils, etc.

3. Fill in the form found in the Main Box and attach the label. Please include $7 for shipping.

4. Pray for the child who will receive it.

5. Include a simple note from the guests or your family if you wish.

6. Place a rubber band around the box and bring to a church on collection week in November or mail to:

Samaritan’s Purse
