i love people

we have 48 hrs before we leave. again we just want to sincerely thank everyone who has donated, as most of our donations have come through the blog. there just aren't words to express our gratitude! our expectations were definitely exceeded and we've all but reached our weight limit. that being said, if anyone is still wanting to help, the following items are more weight conscious and are definitely needed:

infant tylenol drops
medical tape (the kind you use to secure bandages, not athletic tape)
band aids

we're asking that donations be dropped off by midnight tomorrow night (Wednesday February 3rd). checks can still be made out to childrens hope.

amongst all the donations, we received letters written by some students to the children in haiti. they also each brought one thing to donate. precious.

That has got to be the cuttest most heart warming letters i have ever read. I just love children. They are so innocent and willing to help.

The truck isn't mine, it's my mother-in-law's. That's her new version. She has a way old, rusty one, too. So cute.

I feel like such a freaking weenie. I've been gonna bring stuff for you guys to take with you for 2 WEEKS now, and I still haven't done it :( What a waste.

Love the post below. Story of my life.
