We are so very lucky!! In past years, more than half of our budget has been spent on international overnight shipping because that was the only way to get things to the orphanage. Earlier this year, Thomas put out a call on Facebook for a contact inside Russia who could help us buy and ship things locally. Within 24 hours (naturally) his community responded. Nichole Willis connect us to Alina Vesalova and she will help make our purchases inside Russia!
Here's what Thomas is planning for this year:
He's wanted to send indoor trampolines for two years but the logistics of shipping made it impossible. With our new friend in Russia helping, he would like to send TWO indoor mini-trampolines:
He also wants to send big boxes of basics, ie blankets, diapers, wipes, toothpaste, tooth brushes, etc. and has set a budget of $400 for that.
And, since it is Christmas, he wants to finish of his delivery with books, games, puzzles and toys (and maybe a bit of candy!). His budget for that is $300.
So, his total goal is $1000 with 100% of that going to purchase the items above.
If you've done this before, you already know that e are not a 501 (c) 3. If you're new here, now you know. :-) Thomas is just a boy with a big heart who wants to help.
Below is a drop down menu with several gift options. Thomas is so grateful for any and all gifts that make this project happen each year.
