This morning I was visiting Whipup.net (lovely site you should visit, too!), and followed from there to AfricanKelli, who will be visiting an orphanage in Mozambique.

Next month, I would like to hand each of the kids at the older
orphanage a small bag of goodies. I envision a quart-sized Ziplock bag
including a bar of soap, a toothbrush, dental floss, a pack of gum,
Chapstick and perhaps some stickers. Most importantly, I see a small
card with a photo of their new American friend. The card is written in English and Portuguese
and says why this American wanted to extend her/his friendship and wish
this child well. {If I had kids, I’d include a family photo.} The
entire bag shouldn’t cost more than $10 to put together and mail.
If you are interested in sending one (or more) of these bags, please
contact me. In return, I promise to take many photos of the children at
the orphanage and send you a print when I return. This is a simple way
you can easily make a difference in the life of a child in need;
imagine their joy when they find out there are people they’ve never met
who love them.

I’m pretty sure this is all stuff we have extras of in the house thanks to a recent trip to Costco, so it just makes sense to help out in this small way. I’m looking forward to having the kids assemble a bag or two!
