First of all, thank you to all of you who have been praying for this family and sending gift certificates and books. They have received many wonderful donations of clothing, dishes, towels and beds,etc. A local appliance store donated all of their appliances. A man from their church owns an ebay company called NuMarket and he had me come to his warehouse where he filled my van up with a lot of new items for them. The Ambleside Online list members and other homeschoolers have been very helpful in sending many wonderful books. The family has been very grateful and overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone.
The things that are still needed are a few larger items and school supplies that would be unlikely for people to have on hand to donate. If any of you would still like to help, gift certificates (ie. Wal-mart or amazon.com ) or deposits into the bank account that has been set up for donations would be the best way. If you need information about where to send these, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again and bless you all!
