That both excites me and nearly causes me to panic because I have A LOT to do in those 18 days!
It's all good though. It's gonna be fun. :)
I really thought that I would be blogging more about all of this. Maybe I still will.
Part of the reason I haven't is because I want to do justice to the incredible ministries that we will be working with and I just haven't felt particularly inspired to write.
Another part is because I've just been busy and haven't made time.
I have some awesome news...
I AM FULLY FUNDED and am well over my $3500 goal! Soli deo gloria!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I still have a couple more local fundraisers going on and I can't wait to see what else the Lord has in store for this. I'm excited about all of the ways we are going to be able to truly bless these ministries and kids. :) So - just because I have met my goal doesn't mean I'm not still accepting moolah. :) I'll take it right up until I step on the plane. :)
I have another way that y'all can help these sweet orphans:
There are several things that the orphanage and other ministries have requested that can be easily donated and there are also some craft supplies that I am taking over (for VBS) that would be awesome to have donated.
Here's the list of things we need:
*small mirrors (They can be little compact mirrors or handheld mirrors. They do not have to be brand new. We need AT LEAST 200 of these.)
*markers (These need to be new and do not have to be washable)
*glue (Elmer's or similar)
*deodorant (guys and girls)
*bras (new or clean gently used - sizes 36C and up - especially D cup sizes)
*Pull-Ups for 4 year olds
If you would like to donate any of these items and are local just email me and I will tell you what to do with them or if you know me in real life you can just drop them by whenever. I need them NO LATER than March 8th. If you aren't local but want to donate you can use the paypal button on my sidebar and specify what you want the donation to be used for or you can have supplies shipped to me. Email me for my address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Y'all are the best! Know that every little thing helps. It really does. Y'all rock my socks off when you step up to meet needs. Thanks in advance. :)
