We're officially less than one month away from our departure for Ethiopia! We'll be visiting 5 orphanages, where we'll spend time with 500+ orphans! (boy, my 3 kids will be a piece of cake after this trip!)
So many people have asked what they can do or how they can contribute to this trip, so we’ve researched and corresponded with folks who are there and those who have been, and have come up with the following list of items that we’d like to bring to Ethiopia with us:
Children’s Underwear (new - sorry, it never hurts to state the obvious)
Balls (soccer or bouncy – as long as they can be deflated for travel) – we’re bringing a hand pump!
School Supplies (educational posters, flash cards, crayons, pencils/sharpeners & books) – in English.
First Aid Supplies (band aids, Neosporin, hand sanitizer, antibiotic ointment packets, antiseptic wipe packets, etc.)
Children’s Vitamins (non-gummy)
We are also accepting financial donations that can be used one of two ways:
1) given directly to the orphanage director, or
2) to purchase Ethiopian coffee, spices, or keepsakes to bring home for you. We’d like to spend as much money as possible while we’re there so that we can help bring American dollars into their economy.
Thank you for wanting to support "the least of these".
