    • 1. Samaritans purse By: chase mosier
    • 2. Mission statement Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan's Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God's love through His Son, Jesus Christ. Our emergency relief programs provide desperately needed assistance to victims of natural disaster, war, disease, and famine. As we offer food, water, and temporary shelter, we meet critical needs and give people a chance to rebuild their lives.
    • 3. Mission statement Our community development and vocational programs in impoverished villages and neighborhoods help people break the cycle of poverty and give them hope for a better tomorrow. We impact the lives of vulnerable children through educational, feeding, clothing, and shelter programs that let them know they are not forgotten. We provide first-class treatment in the Name of the Great Physician through our medical projects, as well as supplying mission hospitals with much needed equipment and supplies.
    • 4. Operation christmas child Operation christmas child is a program that provides shoebox filled christmas gifts to needy and underprivileged children in 95 countries. Last year 8 million children received shoebox gifts thorough OCC. OCC helps children feel they are loved and not forgotten. The logo is a shoebox gift with wings, signifying how they give their shoebox gifts worldwide.
    • 5. Inputs Much is needed for OCC to be successful including: Donation of toys, coloring books, stuffed animals, school supplies, and other items to be packed in gifts. Volunteers to pack, organize, and ship gifts to the 95 different countries. Leaders to practice the intellectual traits; integrity, humility, fair-mindedness, perseverance, confidence in reason, courage, empathy, and autonomy. With the synthesis of all of these parts OCC is made possible
    • 6. Process Donations of gifts are collected at one of 2000 centers from november 15-22 and brought to a processing center Once there, volunteers inspect, sort, and box gifts to be shipped out, they must infer if the gifts should be for a girl or a boy.
    • 7. Output The gifts are then shipped out to a large breadth of children around the world. Volunteers travel to different locations to distribute thousands of shoebox gifts to children every year.
    • 8. outcome Children are given toys, games, hygiene products, and school supplies. They are also given hope that someone cares about them. Children are taught about gods love.
    • 9. Community need Children all over the world don’t have hope and love, it may be because they are orphans or because they live in poverty. Most don't know of gods love either. through Operation Christmas Child children are given that love and hope, and are shown gods love, even if the giving seems insignificant to us, it might change a child's life.
    • 10. How does this link to Critical Thinking? Volunteers and leaders must plan ahead and problem solve to make sure all the work is done accurately and in a timely fashion. They must also compare and contrast to deicide on where to deliver gifts that would make the most impact on children's lives. The program inspires us to think outside of our community to others in need.
    • 11. How does think link to Critical Thinking? Operation Christmas Child also gets the children receiving the gifts to think that there are people who care and want to help, and this might inspire the kids to make a difference in their own community, which can inspire more people to get involved in that community.
    • 12. How does this link to Critical Action? Operation Christmas Child inspires people to take informed action by volunteering time and donating gifts. Volunteers must make reasonable judgements and evaluations while they inspect and pack gifts. We must gather information on the places and people we go to, to distribute gifts. We must take actions to raise funds and donations to make Operation Christmas Child a success

    • 15. Personal connection. I Volunteered at a distribution center and enjoyed it very much, its a great feeling being able to give to others in the season where giving is most salient, it is also great to think with empathy about others. I am a christian so the values and causes that the organization has are the same as mine, i believe they are doing great work and help many people in need.
