Do you want to help?

Tommy, Liz, Tylor and Makenna are going to Ecuador this summer for about 1 1/2 weeks. We are all excited about the sight seeing and shopping we will be able to do. Makenna has decided to do a service project for her young womens project and take clothes for a foundation that helps children that are very poverty stricken. This foundation (FAHUM) pays tuition for these children that other wise would not have an education. It was founded by a couple of LDS woman that wanted to help these families. Not all the children are LDS, that is not a pre requisite to receive help, but keeping your grades up are, to remain in the program. Holly (of course, would think of this) being a dental assistant suggested we contact our dentist and see about getting toothbrushes through his rep. to take down. Thanks to our (VERY GOOD) dentist Tim Gailey we have a start with about 100 toothbrushes he is donating to the cause. Thanks Tim! We are also taking Holly and Matt's idea and taking white shirts and dress pants for priesthood holders to have for sunday services. Dresses for the young woman would be nice also. Makenna has received a lot of donations from our ward, there is baby clothes that has been donated, some really cute stuff but FAHUM does not deal with babies. Fortunately we have a friend from Ecuador that is a pediatric surgeon that can help us with those donations. We really don't need anymore baby stuff but school age kids cloths would be nice.
