Atlanta, IL Yard Sale to Help Ship Shoe Boxes

Anyone in the Atlanta, IL area?  Chrys, an OCC shoe box packer, and blogger at Packing Hope, is having a garage sale this weekend to benefit Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts.  Her church plans on sending 200 boxes this year and she is trying to raise shipping costs.   Recently their VBS kids brought in enough supplies to fill 120 shoe boxes.  You can find out the details of her sale in her post:  Gearing Up For YARD SALE Day!.

If you stop by the sale, be sure and buy a refreshing drink from her 5 year old son, he is setting up a lemonade stand.  She says " He has lemonade, bottles of water, cans of Pepsi, Coke, and Mountain Dew. All of his lemonade stand money will go toward buying a cow for a needy family in Pakistan through Pakistan Christian Ministries. This is something he has been saving up for, and he is earning all of the money to buy a cow by himself."
