In March, we are loading a container with the assistance of Help International here in Loveland. The container will be shipped to benefit African Christian Childrens' Libraries and Smile Africa. We are sending library books, Christian teaching materials for children and adults, furniture for the library and school, medical supplies like wheelchairs, walkers, gloves, hospital beds etc.
We can fit 45 pallettes of goods in the container plus Smile Africa will keep the container to use as a classroom and new library.
Between now and March 1, if you have books to donate, please let me know and I can get them from you or you can drop them at my house. Spread the word at church, school, work, service clubs, friends.
Here's what we are looking for:
Children's Bible story books
Books for teens
Christian books for women and men
Reference books like dictionaries, atlas
Christian teaching cds and dvds
Educational materials for children or adults that are culturally appropriate
Please no Disney, Barbie, secular Christmas or Easter, anything with wizardry or magic, American cartoon figures.
Prefer: concept books like numbers, shapes, letters, animals, geography, science, world history, biographies of great Americans, especially African Americans, Christian leaders, inspirational stories, classics, etc.
If you want to help but don't have any books, you can go to Wal-Mart.com and get a children's Bible story book for $6 and ship it to me.
With God's help and yours, we can bring the gift of hope through literacy to the children and adults in Uganda!!
