More Humanitarian Items

Just a quick thanks to John and Jan (no last name since you'd figure out Aaron's last name and I'm not supposed to tell - it's a secret), Aaron's parents for sending 4 big boxes of school supplies and clothes. Eighteen boys and girls will be outfitted with backpacks and book bags with all the trimmings as well as lots of warm clothes. Thanks!!

Also, thanks to my Aunt and Uncle, Chuck and Merleen Fox for sending a box of fleece scarves that she made - they're hood/scarves - really nice and warm, mittens, lots of stuffed animals and school supplies.

Aaron says that we should be going out within the next month to deliver all your donations. As I keep promising, we'll take pictures and get them posted. I'm sure that you'll see the pictures here and on Aaron's page.

I can't tell you how much we appreciate you all for your time and donations.

Just to keep you informed on Luke's Eagle Project - he's gone through the initial approval stage and is in the process of writing up the actual project. I'm really proud of him as he's taken on a lot of the responsibility for getting this done. Several of you have been in contact with Janae offering donations to send and funds to help defray the cost of shipping. Thank you so much!! I'll keep you posted on his progress.

Yeah.. Thanks Mom and Dad for sending packages to Bob!! Gosh, I AM your son. I am just joking!! Thank you so much for all the great stuff that you sent! I am working like crazy to coordinate visits with as many villages and families that I can so we can give this stuff out. I can't wait to see how happy they will be to receive all these wonderful things. And yes... my last name is secret, well "G14 classified" to be more precise.

Did you know that Aaron used to eat Secadas and then spit out the wings when he was little?

Yea, he loved the crunchy outside and creamy inside!!

Maybe Aaron would like some to eat for Thanksgiving.

I hear Aaron's "criminal" record is also "classified."
