Uganda Trip – How You Can Help

14 Feb

Less than two weeks until I head to Uganda!  I’m gathering all my items to pack in one place, and as I’m doing that, I’m packing a GIANT duffel bag of things to take to the kids at Arise and Shine (the babies’ home we’ll be working at).

I have a few things to pack in that duffel bag already, but I would love for it to be FULL!  Or even to have to take TWO of them!  Can you help me fill up that suitcase??

Arise and Shine has given us a list of things that they need:

***I NEED TO RECEIVE ALL ITEMS BY FEBRUARY 25, 2014***

…ITEMS NEEDED for ARISE & SHINE…

Baby formula for infants
Vitamins (gummies)
Tylenol or Paracetamol (pain relief and fever meds)
Baby sheets
*Clothes 0-5 years (boys and girls)
*Shoes/sandals 0-5 Years (boys and girls)
Educational materials
Books
Preschool supplies
Toys
Disabled children equipment (any thing to help them get mobile, toys that can stimulate them, etc)
Washable diapers
Tooth brushes and tooth paste

*Gently used clothes and shoes should be fine. Anything would be such a blessing to these kids.
The above items are what Arise and Shine really needs. I know that so many of you have businesses and Etsy shops with items that would be such an added blessing to these kids to go above and beyond just basic needs. Below is a list of other items that would also be so great to bring to the home. Keep in mind the items are for kids ages 0-5. It would also be amazing if you wanted to include a little note to the kids that I could read to them!

 

…EXTRA BLESSING ITEMS…

Headbands
Blankets
Quilts
Stuffed Animals
Dolls
Baby slings
Bracelets
Games
Crayons
Coloring books or drawing pads
Play mats
Burp Cloths

…or anything else you can think of!

If you want to help out with some of these items, please email me at rschlieman@gmail.com and I can either give you my address for you to send me the items or we can work on coordinating pickup.

Thank you so much for all your help!!  I can’t wait to share all these things with the kids in Uganda!
