A few weeks ago it was too soon to talk about Christmas for some but at DP we were already embracing the festivities! We were busy preparing our celebrations, wrapping presents and playing Secret Santa. This year, however, we also wanted to spread some Christmas joy outside our offices and participate in Operation Christmas Child, run by Samaritan’s Purse.

Samaritan’s Purse is a non-profit organisation that aims to provide support, emergency relief and development assistance to suffering people around the world. It is a great charity and runs the famous “shoebox appeal”.

Operation Christmas Child is one of many of the charity’s initiatives and involves filling a shoebox with gifts, school supplies, hygiene items and anything else that might bring a smile to a child’s face.

This Christmas, we wanted to make as many children happy as possible and with more than 50% of our team contributing to this very worthy cause, we are sure there will be plenty of smiles soon. We wait in anticipation to see where our boxes have been delivered…

Wishing everyone around the world an early “Happy Christmas” from DP.
