6 Things I Need for Honduras … Can You Help?

A group of 47 of us are heading to Honduras in a little over a month.  I just thought I’d ask this morning …. would you, your church, your work, social club, etc, be willing to help gather things up for our trip to Honduras?  We need some help with some little things to take with us.  The following are a few things we need and if you can help, please email me and I’ll send you an address where you can ship them. These would greatly bless our work there…

  • STICKERS: Small stickers for children. The size of a nickel or smaller. The children LOVE stickers.
  • BRACELETS: Yarn bracelets (See picture below). You can stick a bunch in your pocket and the children beg for a bracelet.
  • COLORS AND SPANISH COLORING BOOKS: The children love crayons and coloring. Sometimes when there are long lines for food, clothes, or to see the doctor at the medical clinic, we’ll pass out colors and Spanish coloring books and just sit and color.
  • MULTI-VITAMINS:Children’s and adult multi-vitamins.  Generics are fine.
  • OINTMENT: Ointment for skin (generic) like anti-itch cream and antibiotic cream (click on link to see pictures). These are used at the medical clinics.
  • PAIN KILLERS (big bottles) Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and Ibuprofen (Advil) in the generics (click on link to see pictures). We sort these out in sandwich bags and use them at the medical clinics we do.

Please send them no later than July 5th, to …

When we visit the children's hospital in Honduras, they love getting stickers and yarn bracelets.

 

Last year my friend Tamie Ross sent me this package for our trip. Her church had gathered up this stuff and it helped us tremendously.

Yarn bracelet. 3 pieces of yarn about 12'' long, then you weave them together. The kids love the ones that are made with the brightest yarn.

Can you help with any of these?

    My oldest daughter loves making bracelets! When will you be going next month? We would love to help in any way possible.
    This would be a great time to have one of those extreme couponing people around. I bet they have tons they could send with you!

    Hey, what about those silly bands? The ones that are rubber but in all different shapes from cars to animals to princesses? Can I send those?

  5. Trina says:

    Just told my girls about your trip and the bracelets and they are super excited to make some, so we are going yarn shopping this afternoon and will get them in the mail to you soon! :)

  10. Jackie says:

    I’m thinking we can get you several of these items and I will just drop them off with you before July 5th since I’m here in town.

  11. Stacy says:

    Question on the multi-vitamins: will a bottle be given to a family or are they divided out into snack bags? I am debating between getting 60 count or 120 count bottles of children’s multi-V chewables. Is there a preference?

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
