FALL CLOTHING DRIVE for Nesco and Ray of Hope
Thanks again for your support! We are kicking off our first clothing drive for the street kids of Ray of Hope and Nesco in Kampala. Many of these children have a school uniform and that's all... After prayer and research into the cost of shipping, I feel like we are to go ahead, trusting the Lord to provide all that we - and they - need.
* The temperature in Kampala is the same all year: mid to low 80s in the day, mid-60s at night. So we don't need winter clothes!
* The girls wear dresses and skirts, NEVER shorts, and rarely rarely pants.
* Please no war themed items (camo, guns, tanks, soldiers, etc), and no skeletons.
* Soccer is BIG, so anything soccer is esp popular with the boys.
The shipping cost from Charlotte to Kampala is $555/cu meter. Wow. So if you could donate $5-10 with your items, it would be greatly appreciated! However, it's still much cheaper than trying to buy clothing there.
I dont' have any drop off locations yet, but you can come to my house, ship to me, or I can meet you or come to you to pick up. Message me and we'll work it out!
Thanks for your prayers for this project!
