Hello family and friends. I have been sick at home all week, on my couch. It is not as relaxing as it sounds. It is mostly very achy and chilly and sweaty, and there have been lots of tissues involved. And now I have a little 7 year-old home with a fever who, once medicated with ibuprofen, wants to do things like ride her bike and go to the museum, like she’s on vacation or something. Ha! Kids.
Anyhow, I got an email from Heartline today, with a list of things they are collecting for the orphanages and schools they are affiliated with. We will be visiting some schools and orphanages on our trip, and interacting with the children there. For anyone who hasn’t done their shopping yet and would like to still contribute, Heartline has a need for the following items:
Children’s size T-shirts
Decks of cards
Uno (card game)
Water bottles or those bag type water bottles
Matchbox type cars
Candy (non-‐sugar like jolly ranchers)
Small matchbox/hot wheel cars
Art and craft supplies
I had my first conference call last week and will have an update for you, when I have the energy!
