Three Big Thank Yous!

The KC Express running group met this morning, and while there, I received donations from three ladies. Patricia Farmar donated shoes and socks. Alisa Mueller donated shoes (3 pairs!) Terry Mann donated shoes, socks, and school supplies. Thank you ladies! Without donations like this, the suitcases wouldn't be possible. I'm greatful for the help you are providing and enabling me to reach the goal of 3 full suitcases.

Donation and Updates

First off, thank you Lori from KC Express for the donation of a pair of running shoes! Yahoo!

 And then an update. The school we are adopting, Servite Primary in Brown's Town, Jamaica has been contacted. Mrs. Crawford is the principle there, and she is excited about what we are doing, and thinks this is wonderful. She is grateful for all the basic supplies we will be providing, but has a special request as well. The school could really used a video projector. It doesn't have to be new, but just good working order. Does anyone have a company that would like to donate one of theirs no longer in use? Or just a personal one? Thanks for all your continued support!

Baggage Fee Donation

Thank you Barb Pool for the baggage fee donation! Barb mailed a check for $25, enough to cover the checked bag fee for one suitcase! Yahoo! I'm excited to be able to update the Donations Needed page to reflect this. Each time a donation comes in, I get more excited about this project and how one little idea can help so many. If you haven't looked through your closet for your old athletic shoes, maybe you can check tonight. And, as always, please shares this site with your friends and family. Like us on Facebook, . Thanks!
