We have 26 more children to get sponsored. The children that were shown as available on the last post are still available except for : Kiah, Henry, Joshua and Lucy.

Do you  know someone who would want to sponsor one of these little ones? Would you consider posting about Operation Giggle on your blog, facebook, or sending out an email to your friends and family?

I would really like to post the information for the Orphanage in Ethiopia tomorrow night but I would like to have all of the children already listed taken first. This just makes things so much easier as far as bookkeeping on my end goes.

For those families who have already picked a NEW DAY CHILD I am going to go ahead and give you some information about what happens next.

This year we are going to have to change the way we do things just a little bit. You live and you learn...and last year was our first year doing this and lets just say we figured out what NOT to do on a few things. :-)

1. The first thing you need to do is purchase a box. You MUST use a 12"x12"x12" box. You should be able to find these locally. If you can not find these locally you can order them on-line. I know it is bothersome to ask for a particular size box but for us to ship the gifts we need to be able to count on how much space your gift will take up. Last year we had some presents that were VERY BIG, I am sure the children loved them but we ended up having a very hard time getting everything packed and shipped.

2. Remember there is a 3lb limit on the gifts please make sure you weigh your gift in the box and that it is under 3lb's if it is not I just ask that you try to give a little extra money for shipping. Which brings me to number 3.

3. If every family that sponsors a child gave $25 toward shipping we would be able to cover it with no problem. I am not requiring that you give $25 nor am I saying to only give $25 you give what you feel is fair but I am asking that if you agree to sponsor a child you give something toward the shipping.

4. After you get your box you may begin buying gifts for your child. Please do not buy clothes, food, or liquids. (the Foster Home is supplied with plenty of clothes and they have asked that we do not send clothes.) Also please do not send battery powered toys and please do not send guns, or any violent toys. We are a Christ centered organization and we would like this reflected in the gifts.

I understand that these requests are different then last year and if you have agreed to sponsor a child already and feel that due to these requests you are unable to sponsor that child now please let me know. I hope everyone understands that these requests are made to keep things fair and so that we will be able to continue to provide gifts without a financial hardship with the shipping.

Once you have your gift and are ready to ship it you may send it to:

Operation Giggle
123 Cedarwood Trail NW
Cleveland TN 37312

Thank you so much for sponsoring these children. Remember what James 1:27 says: Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world

Lets make this Christmas wonderful for these children!

In Christ Alone,
