Our little Christmas Elves are hard at it ..
As we have shared , we have 3 guests joining us this Christmas to help with the parties and helping us to deliver about 400 lbs of Vitamins to carry the orphanages over the winter . We have a very busy schedule ready for them. I am sure that there will be several changes as their usually are .. its hard to fit over 35 different events into just nine days , but with a little doubling up and some tight scheduling , we have managed to fit 30 of them , representing over 1600 people .that just leaves another 480 in three orphanages that we will have to do after the team leaves.
As well there is another large home for disabled , mostly aged out teens that we would like to go to if we have another $1500 to $2000 come in before we go next week.
