Together, we are changing lives
The Shoebox Challenge began in 2011 when Samaritan’s Purse and Herschend Family Entertainment partnered with the goal to collect shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. Since the challenge started, we have collected over 4 million shoeboxes for children in need around the world! Last year over 1 million shoeboxes were collected! The shoeboxes you lovingly pack are reaching more than just the children who receive them. They affect their parents and even the local church community as a whole. Together, we are changing lives!
Help us change the lives of thousands of families, and earn your church or organization complimentary tickets to participating theme parks and attractions while doing so.
3 Easy Steps to Participate
1. REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED – Register your church or organization by November 1.
2. BOX CONFIRMATION NOW CLOSED – Please confirm your shoebox count by December 15.
***We will not be able to accept shoebox counts after December 15***
3. Claim and print your tickets by March 1, 2019.
You will receive an email with a link to claim your tickets, with the exception of Elitch Gardens recipients who will have tickets mailed. All unclaimed and unprinted tickets will be forfeited.
