Many of you have been asking me about the Chile relief efforts we have going. I started out just wanting to help a couple of families and now it has grown. We have giveaways going for all who donate. To date we have sent 11 boxes of aid to Talca, San Miguel, and Llo Lleo, Chile. They went to families I knew there and are being directly distributed to those affected by the earthquake.
We have six more boxes ready to go but I am waiting for shipping donations as each box costs $55 to send via flat rate priority mail. We will keep sending as fast as we can! Recently we had another request from my friends in Maipu, Chile. They would like to work together with us to distribute aid. If you can contribute even a dollar, we have a fund set up at PayPal under the email firstname.lastname@example.org 100% of the funds go directly to Chile. Or, if you want to donate items…here are supplies we have been asked for:
non-perishable food items
hygiene kit items: trial sized shampoo, combs, soap, razors, toothbrushes, wash cloths etc.
Contact me via email for addresses of where to send the items. Thanks so much. This has been a wonderful experience and I have enjoyed hearing from those I love in Chile. They have asked us to pray that the winter rains don’t arrive before they can get shelter put together for those living outdoors. Fuerza CHILE!
