Every child deserves a childhood
Our mission is inspired by the spirit and message of The Christmas Box, a book by Richard Paul Evans that emphasizes the beauty and importance of love for children. The Christmas Box International partners with local, national and international communities and groups to prevent child abuse and to improve the quality of life for children who have been abused or neglected.

The Village Run
The Village 5K Run/Walk, an event sponsored by the Christmas Box International in partnership with the Department of Child and Family Services, will be held on Saturday, April 12th from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Packet Pick-Up for this event will be Friday, April 11th from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Harley-Davidson Timpanogos located at 555 S. Geneva Road in Lindon, UT.
This race hopes to bring awareness to Utah foster teens, bridging relationships between foster families and biological parents. It is a family-friendly event open to the community, and will include a meet-and-greet with New York Times best-selling author Richard Paul Evans, an Easter Egg Hunt and a FREE Children's 1K Run/Walk.
Proceeds will go to Christmas Box International's Lifestart Initiative, which supports teens aging out of foster care. Youth in the foster care program run for free.
