The fourth-grader says, “It’s been really hard but really fun.”
Jordyn McNeal used social media to collect 38,000 toys and toiletries that she and her family packed into more than 5,000 shoeboxes for distribution by the Christian charity Samaritan’s Purse.
The charity led by the Rev. Franklin Graham is sending an estimated 8-million shoeboxes to children in more than 100 countries this Christmas season.

“What makes me most sad is when a child doesn’t have a mom and dad and loses everything they have because of a hurricane, earthquake or war. I don’t know what I would feel like if I lost everything I had and didn’t have my family. It would make me really sad and upset,” says Jordyn. “Giving them a gift would give them lots and lots of joy and let them know people love them!”
“If I received a shoebox filled with a teddy bear, toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, some clothes, and toys after I lost everything, it would make me really, really, really, happy,” she says.
