They're changing the lives of children around the world one box at a time.

Boys and girls worldwide suffer from poverty, hunger, disease, abandonment and exploitation.

Operation Christmas Child makes the holiday a little brighter for those who deserve more.

Fred Morgan from Fairlawn Baptist Church says it brings so much happiness.

"Know that someone does care...cause we get clips from Operation Christmas Child where some of these kids give their personal testimonies on what it meant to them to receive a shoebox...just a simple item like a hair barrette... how much it meant to them," he says.

Morgan says they only had one toothbrush for the whole orphanage to use.

So the shoeboxes put smiles on the faces of children who might not have reason to smile.
