Operation Christmas Child has already started the process of packing gifts for children to be distributed as Christmas approaches. But there's a slight difference. There are no reindeer to carry these goodies. Instead there are elephants more than willing to do the job!

These gifts come through the donations of privileged children and their families who contribute toys, school supplies, candies and personal hygiene items. Millions of children worldwide have been touched in this way especially in war ravaged and natural disaster struck regions, enduring harsh conditions.
And there are no reindeer to drag Santa's sleigh, but there are elephants, ox, camels and even dog sled to carry forward Santa's mission and legacy. These creatures along with helicopters, airplanes and ships are used to deliver the gifts to the children enduring harsh conditions and making their Christmas special and memorable.
Truly heartening!Cheers to the spirit of Christmas!
