Georgie Henley: Operation Christmas Child in Narnia

Georgie Henley: Operation Christmas Child in Narnia

Georgie Henley is ready to bring Christmas to everyone around the world.

The 15-year-old actress will front the special charity campaign which leads up to the release of the third film in the franchise. Georgie shared, “When our characters first came into Narnia, it was always winter and never Christmas. Sadly today, for million of children around the world, it’s still always winter and never Christmas. That is why 20th Century Fox and Walden Media are proud to partner with the Samaritan Purse project, Operation Christmas Child. Working together, our goal is to give gifts this Christmas to more than 8 million children around the world. But we need your help.”

Georgie continued, “With your help, our goal is to deliver more than 8 million shoe boxes, filled with items that will be meaningful to a child — toys, stuffed animals, school supplies, hard candy, and hygiene items. These boxes are then delivered to local collection centers around the country and shipped in time for the Christmas season.”

    My school does this shoe box collecting too!:) It’s nice that this is all over the world. Everybody else should do this, not only people who are rich. It takes nothing, so I think it’s great that schools are being involved! So cool she does it too!!:)

    I think it is admirable that she wants to do charity work and help children during Christmas. I wish she had chosen a different charity to work with though. She may or may not know, but this a religious crusade. They give the children a box of toys and candy and a mini-bible. They make the kids go to religious classes for weeks. Kind of a trick to me. : (
