Haiti's Rescue Mission

Got this email from my friend Tara and hoping to catch some more San Antonio readers who can help with any donations for the Haiti Children's Rescue Mission! Donations to orphanages are VITAL and can you imagine the looks on their faces when these kiddos get new socks, shoes, bags, underwear, toothbrushes, toys, etc?

Read below, visit the blog link for the detailed list and if you can donate, bring the items up to the church Wed. night (Northside church of Christ on 218 and Thousand Oaks). Melynda Dye is helping collect things for Tara to then get to Cindy =) Find Melynda or let me know if you don't know her and I'll arrange for a drop off box somewhere.

Here is Tara's email: (hope you don't mind me doing this Tara! I didn't even ask!)

Hello, In response to this request (http://thispoeticpresent.blogspot.com/2010_05_01_archive.html) on Cindy Foote's blog, I'm taking a few items over to her house on Thursday. She is flying to Haiti soon, and will pack the donations in her suitcases. There are currently 115 orphans in a space built for 45, at Haiti Children's Rescue Mission. http://www.ourchildreninhaiti.com/index.html If anyone is interested in donating the items she is seeking (soap, socks, toothbrushes, notebooks, etc--please see her blog post for a more complete list), please reply to this email and let me know. We can work out the details (likely a designated area at the church to place the items on Wednesday evening) once I know if anyone is able to contribute.

Thanks so much!Tara Richardson
