7 Things I Need For Honduras … Can You Help?

A group of 50 of us are heading to Honduras in a little over a month.  We’ll be feeding the hungry, building homes, doing medical clinics, visiting the sick, etc.  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 50 cent-piece 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.
  • 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 and WITH iron is GREAT.
  • 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.
  • VERY SMALL STUFFED ANIMALS: I need very small stuffed animals … like beanie-babies. Nothing larger than a beanie-babie will work.

Please send them no later than June 15th, 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?  Do you have any questions?

    Last year I brought some things to Red River. Will that be too late? If not, I’ll gather some things up and bring them with me.

  2. Jodie Rodgers says:

    Hey there Trey, I’m heading to Honduras next year, I’ll send some yarn bracelets over!
    About how many are you looking to take?

  3. Dondra Underwood says:

    I’m Cindy Hochstetler’s daughter, she told me to check this out. I have some yarn bracelets already made and can make more. I’ll see what else we can get together for you in time. God bless!

    Hello! My friend, Dondra Underwood, shared your site with me. My daughter and I have come up with a medium box of small stuffed animals to send. We’re so excited to be giving them a new home in Jesus’ name! Blessings!

  7. Trey Morgan says:

    Hi Jessica … Thanks for helping. The Honduran kids will LOVE the stuffed animals.

  8. You asked if I had any questions…..”How amazing are all of you??” :)

    • Trey Morgan says:

      I don’t know about amazing … but we are very blessed that we get to go. And we are very thankful that we have so many people willing to help send things that we need. Thanks Carolyn for always being so supportive and encouraging. :)

  9. Tina says:

    What about crayons or markers for the coloring books??

  10. Amanda Phillips says:

    Just some tips from an experienced Honduras Hope girl: I’ve found that the chewable vitamins that aren’t gummy work better as the gummy ones have a tendency to melt in the bags. Also, I know that in the past Dr. Green has prescribed a lot of naproxin or generic Aleve, not sure if that would be helpful to pack along as well. I hope you all have a great trip! I can’t believe I’m not going this year. :(
