Less than a week until my Christmas open house and Haiti fundraiser for the prison and brothel ministries! I am having SO much fun opening the front door to your packages of goodies from my list! I am still hoping that those of you close enough to come will do just that… come! I have updated the list to show what’s already come in so that we can hopefully get a little of everything. Your donations have been absolutely overwhelming! I literally sat on my kitchen floor last week and just cried, thanked God and cried some more as my doorbell kept ringing with new packages form my sweet friends. My guess is that the biggest need to fill after Friday night will be funds to pay for the extra bags back into Haiti!
One huge update: We had enough shirts donated for the “brothel boys” school uniforms! I have also gotten a message about someone bringing school supplies Friday night so it looks like school will be in session when I get back! WOOOHOOO! (Thanks Jodi and Dawn!)
Here’s what we are still looking for. You can bring them by and say hello on Friday night or drop it in the mail if you are too far away.
batteries (sizes D, AA and AAA)
individual portion drink mixes
packs of playing cards
toiletry items (bars of soap, shampoo, toothpaste)
notebooks (for prison and school at brothel)
packages of Oreo’s
bathroom size paper cups
pouches of chocolate chip cookie mix
Monetary donations needed (cash or check):
* money to restock depleted supplies listed above and baggage fees
* sewing instructor at prison $80/month
* Bibles and song books $10/each
* money to build business opportunity for girls leaving the brothel (about $500 each)
The open house is this Friday, Dec 2nd, from 6pm-9pm. The address to come, and to mail, is 18 Huntsman Look, Ormond Beach, FL 32174.
Thanks for being a part of keeping these ministries going! Hope to see you there.
