Progress!

I have some good news to share the orphanage purchased some wood and had a table built! The table is also big enough for family meals, which is awesome. They are also working on benches.

Some of the girls were going to a party that the school was holding and Emily with such a great heart decided to give them some money to go buy new outfits, like sandals and shirts. I guess they had a blast! and were showing of their clothes when they got home. There’s nothing like going out and buying new clothes right? Just imagine how the girls felt who have almost nothing in the first place and got to go buy some clothes for a party.

Other news people at work have been so generous with donating I get some donation in my can that I have on my desk everyday which really keeps me motivated. I spoke to one friend and she’s shocked I’m doing this and is so happy for me and jumped at the chance to help out. I brought her some posters today to hand out as she requested and has already spread the word to friend and we may have some kids that will be sponsored, keep your fingers crossed! I’d rather have a child be sponsor for a simple 30 dollars a month then receive a donation for my project to get out to Haiti.

Today I put in my order for a Solar charger which will help out with Emily’s computer so she can keep up on her blog and stay in contact with everyone as well keep any other minor electronics running so we can talk with supports through the country.

I got back in touch with a company vinyldisorder.com that was more than happy to send out some samples and free vinyl’s/ sticker so that we can spruce things up at the orphanage and things for the kids to play with.

Recently I’ve been really thinking hard about putting together a Pasta Dinner auction for some time in August. I have an idea for ticket pricing now I’m just trying to think of some venues I can use there’s a few idea’s floating around. My biggest concern at this point is publicity getting people to buy tickets. I know a lot of people who would love to go to shops and ask for donations for the auction and I’ve had a lot of people excited for me to do a dinner as well and say I’ll bring in a lot of money; I hope so because anything in surplus of 2500 dollars goes straight to Hime For Help and they really need it for the new orphanage.

I want to thank everyone for the amazing amount of support so far.
