I know that my email and blog post below are a bit overwhelming in terms of the amount of information, so I thought a quick list would help everyone understand our immediate needs:
1) Donations to Wheels For Humanity for the 500 wheelchairs we will be delivering on our trip. Please use this form so we know the money is going to our particular shipping container!
2) Our wonderful adoption agency, Gladney, does an amazing job at getting humanitarian aid to the children of Ethiopia. These needs include quality-of-life assistance, transition programs for older teenagers leaving institutional or foster care, Brighter Future Camps, and emergency relief. Donate here.
3) Prayers for a safe and successful trip to bring as many smiles to Ethiopia as we can!
As far as the soccer uniforms go, we are lucky to say that we have as much as we can possibly carry! I have collected a huge bin of shirts, shorts and socks from all over Fairfield County and was also able to secure over 1,000 brand new shirts through our contacts at UCP Wheels for Humanity. Thanks so much to all of you who have donated - we can't wait to share the pictures!
Thanks so much for all of your support so far!
