Also several of you have asked me for a ideas for gifts. I spoke to Joy and these are the ideas she gave me.

  • Board games .... because of size, maybe travel games like Sorry, Checkers, Battleship, Guess Who.
  • For the older girls, nail polish, files, polish remover pads; hand/body cream, new, nice tooth brush and small tooth paste; lip gloss in a nice little zipper kit. (I save bags I get from Clinique or Mary Kay, for instance)
  • They have backpacks for school, but they might enjoy a school zipper bag with a nice mechanical pencil (and led) and pens (different colors) and maybe a small drawing pad.
  • Polo shirts or t-shirts for the guys ... Christian t-shirts especially for both boys and girls.
  • Cross/Christian necklaces for both boys and girls. Inexpensive watches.
  • Bracelets and hair stuff (for Black hair) as all girls like to look pretty!
  • A new pillowcase!
  • For the two younger girls .... do they make paper dolls anymore? Or a simple craft kit. A pretty skirt (on the longer side). New flip-flops that are pretty. Pretty shirts, new jammies.
  • Stuffed animal
  • Small hard candies (so they don't melt or break)
  • Small sewing kit, deodorant, new toothbrush, tooth paste, breath mints/gum, chap stix ... could be stuck in with something else
  • Sweats are easy because they don't have to fit perfectly.
  • DVDs (go for it! .... they like all kinds; what your kids would like .... super heros, Christian stories, animations). Their English is quite good, especially receptive. I am sure those who are doing this project would use discretion as to content.
  • For Abdissa (the director .... not sure he is on there) a nice Bible cover/carrier, pads to write on, nice pen, cell phone case for his belt, new belt, cotton shirt (he is a medium) long or short sleeves (no iron would be fabulous), sweater vest, new tie, socks, wallet
  • Socks! The boys would enjoy athletic socks, the girls pretty, unique ones
  • Flash lights. Electricity is only on every other day. The boys might even enjoy those head lights. That way they could read at night.

 I hope this helps those of you who are buying gifts. Also I will be sending this out in an email with the address to mail your gifts to included. Please check your email. Thanks!
