About Us

Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Australians and New Zealanders to bless children in need around the world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies and other fun gifts. We collect the gift-filled shoeboxes and distribute them to children in over 100 countries in the Name of Jesus Christ.

After receiving a shoebox gift, children have the opportunity to enrol in The Greatest Journey – our dynamic, 12-lesson Bible study course that guides children through what it means to faithfully follow Jesus Christ.

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Australia and New Zealand have packed over 270,000 shoeboxes that are sent to children in need all over the world. Globally, Operation Christmas Child has packed over 10.5 million shoeboxes that are shipped to over 100 receiving countries worldwide. This means that through the shoeboxes you packed, millions of children hear about the Good News and Great Joy of Jesus Christ.
