Hats for Kids

I have become quite a fan of Frida and would like to send her a shipment of hats, scarves, and mittens for the children she serves in Afghanistan. If you can donate to this endeavor, please write me for my mailing address. I hope to gather up enough to get a box out to her while there is still much cold weather need. Also, please feel free to link this request to your blog so we can get the word out. Thanks, Annie

Annieelf, thank you so much. When my lovely man and I were shopping for clothes for the children at the orphanage here we were frustrated at the lack of decent woollen goods, we had to settle in most cases for fleece. I

f you can get things to me I can promise to distribute them, probably with a little bit of hit and miss - like my experience in Ghor - but with our best efforts to identify the most needy children and put the goods directly into/onto their hands!

I was just reading your personal statement - about "putting it out there" and "making ripples". I think it is an amazing thing this internet, talk about making ripples!

I will absolutely donate...in fact can I bring them with me next weekend...or should we send them ourselves??
Last year we took all the pennies we had sort of tossed in things and donated them. the owner of a local quilt shop has a young daughter who created a penny drive. All of the money was gathered and sent to a missionary in Africa for school supplies. That little girl raised a quite a bit of $ but she also raised our spirits by her own actions.
XOXO
