well, FILL THEM!!!!
November 1 - November 29, 2009
COLLECT and FILL
as many bags as you can,
get them to me and
they will be mailed to boys and girls between the ages of
7 to 18 years old
living in 16 different poverty stricken orphanages and distributed for Christmas!!!
(orphanages are outside the city of Odessa)
All gifts should fit inside a sealed quart size zip-lock bag and the cost of each gift should not exceed $10. Each gift should include: 1 pair of socks, 1 type of candy, a Christmas card, $1 per bag for shipping and an extra item(s). Some ideas are listed below but these are only suggestions and other items may be included as well. Be creative and use your imagination. The zip-lock may be sent wrapped or unwrapped (We will wrap unwrapped gifts so they will all be the same). All gifts should be labeled with the age and gender.
any small toys, balls, cars, crayons, markers, colored pencils, coloring books, hair things, lip gloss, jewelry, photo frame, photo album, keychains, yo-yo, legos, building games (k’nex, magnetic toys), small notebook, stickers, UNO card game, small puzzles, brain teaser games, small electronic games, watch, hat, gloves, scarf, calculator, flashlight, belt, comb, brush, small calendar, expanding washcloth, etc.

I've had a heart for this gal's ministry for sometime.
She is there to literally intercede and 'be' there for the orphans living in these horrid orphanages.
FINALLY, there is a way to be involved at this point in my life - DO JOIN ME!
You can also e-mail her to get on her e-mail list - she sends out the most amazing stories.
A saint and a hero - totally inspiring - and because of her, along with foster adopting, adopting from Africa and adopting from Haiti I now want to adopt a teenager from Ukraine.....it's gonna be a full house in a few years ;-)
in the mean time.....I'm gonna go get some baggies!!
