Hygiene Kit Drive Ends Today!

Hey, Friends!

Thanks to all of you who participated in the 1000 Hygiene Kits By March 31st collection drive.

I did not receive feedback from everyone who participated, but we had an INCREDIBLE outpouring of generosity!!!

On April 10, from 9am-Noon, there will be a Singles in Service at Watermark Community Church in Dallas, TX to assemble kits from the donations received so far. Once the numbers are added up, I'll be sure to let you know! If you collected hygiene items and have not yet contacted me (especially friends in the Midwest etc), please let me know how many kits you assembled so I can add it to the count.

IT'S NOT OVER YET. Rebuilding Haiti will take millions of dollars and millions of service hours, but I am encouraged and assured that we can do our part to make it happen.

Please continue to check back for other opportunities to participate in helping Haiti.

God Bless!

1000 Hygiene Kits: Let’s Keep It Simple


Please, don’t be overwhelmed by this goal. You don’t have to single-handedly put together 1000 hygiene kits. Here are some simple ideas for doing your part:

  • Have everyone in your community group or athletic team or PTA group (you get the idea ;)) contribute one item off the list.
  • Ask your local grocery store if they would be willing to donate bandages, wipes, toothpaste and other items for putting together hygiene kits.
  • Need to clear out your garage? How about hosting a garage sale and sending the proceeds to GAiN for hygiene kits in Haiti!
  • DO YOU HAVE OTHER IDEAS FOR KEEPING THIS PROJECT SIMPLE AND ATTAINABLE? Please share:

This is Really Not About You . . .

Not entirely, anyway :)
Maybe you’ve already done your part to help. Maybe you’ve got something in the works. But DON’T FORGET the 10, or 20, or 100 people in your circle who would like to help somehow but are not quite sure how to start. Or those for whom —- amidst the din of everything else that’s going on -- the crisis in Haiti has faded into the background.
THE NEED IS GREAT, AND NO HELP IS TOO SMALL. We can’t all go to Haiti, friends, but Haiti can feel our presence.
