Bottom line ... WOW Christmas Green is a great mix of plenty of amazing artists, combining their talents to bring us some Christmas cheer. Where else can you hear Chris Tomlin quietly crooning "Angels We Have Heard on High," Bethany Dillon giving "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" a serious jazz treatment that will bring visions of Snoopy getting ready to fight the Red Baron to mind, and Third Day delivering "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" with a touch of southern rock in one place?
To make WOW Christmas Green even more appealing, the WOW brand joined up with Franklin Graham's Samaritan's Purse for the 2006 'Operation Christmas Child' campaign to deliver gift-filled shoe boxes to children in desperate need around the world. During the "WOW Your World" promotion, everyone who bought WOW Christmas Green received an official Operation Christmas Child shoebox to pack with things like toys, clothing, school supplies and other small gifts.
Point Of Grace was one of the spokespersons for the WOW Your World campaign. In a press release, Denise Jones talked about why the group participated.
"For the last five years, my family has made Operation Christmas Child one of our yearly traditions. Our children are so blessed here in America and to share with them how important it is to live generously by sharing with those less fortunate is a priority for both me and my husband. By investing in such a wonderful project as Wow Christmas Green, you are able to bring hope to children all over the world and you get to hear great, uplifting music as well."
