If you have any interest in starting a tradition with your children or grandchildren (or by yourself) of giving to a child in crisis at Christmas this is a great program with which to do it. It is simple and can be very personal by including a letter and a picture. Often in the videos of the children receiving the boxes it is the photograph that they are most thrilled with. I remember seeing a little Spanish speaking fellow waving the photo shouting "amigos, amigos."
