Mitzi Eaker has put together a really neat project that is a very practical way for your children’s ministry or your family to minister to kids who were impacted by last week’s tornadoes.  There are so many kids in so many areas of the state.  I love how easy and hands on this project is.  Here is a brief description from the website:

“We are asking that families and children’s ministries across the country get involved by creating “Boxes of Hope” for children which will be distributed in disaster relief centers, emergency shelters, and area hospitals to storm victims. These boxes will contain a personal note to the children with scripture for encouragement, fun activities such as a coloring book, small toys or games, and a few toiletry items. “Boxes of Hope” are aimed at providing a distraction and encouragement to children who have lost everything in this heartbreaking disaster. As parents, we know that seeing our children receive such a gift in this circumstance would help put our minds at ease as well.”
