‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

So I just went to paypal and calculated all of the donations earmarked for the orphanage, and it is at just over $1600! Thank you for giving so generously! I know I'll make my goal!

I've purchased $600 worth of toys, toiletries, underwear and simple medical supplies this far. And I'll have over $1000 to use in country! Here are the other things I expect to buy for them with the donated funds, once I'm over there:

  • fresh fruit for all 100 of them
  • a dvd player and movies
  • 50 new pairs of shoes
  • soccer balls and other sports equipment
  • as many bikes as I can afford

If anyone has any other ideas, please comment below! I've also bough several bags of beads and string  so they can make bracelets for one another. Any other ideas?

    You're doing amazing things. I will donating a little tonight. My suggestion would be some picture books (I'm an English teacher). Just a few books that they can look at and really let their imaginations fly. I wish you the best and I am waiting to hear how it all goes with eager anticipation.

  2. Please post your paypal link again! I'd love to donate to your cause!
