…It’s beginning to look a lot like Gena

Christmas in Ethiopia is called Gena and it’s celebrated on January 7th.  Here at Ethiopian Orphan Relief we’re gathering gifts to put in backpacks for children of  Children’s Heaven  & FOVC (Friends of Orphans & Vulnerable Children).  Through “ProjectGena2010”  your generosity will brighten an orphan’s life.  EOR provides the backpacks~~ can you help us fill them?

Boy or girl? Email kim@ethiopianorphanrelief.org to make plans to shop for a specific child.  Too busy to shop for all the special someones on your personal gift list? A backpack for an Ethiopian child makes a wonderful gift for others.  For a donation of 15.00 we’ll shop for you  AND send a special card to the honoree of your choice.   A personalized letter or photo makes a wonderful addition to any backpack – we welcome yours.  We can’t wait to share a photo of the children receiving their gifts,  please include your address with your donation so we can send you one too.   To see a video of Project Gena click here.

For those counting, it’s 106 days till Christmas! Let EOR help you take some gifts off your list.  Do your children have a service project at school?  Feel free to pass along our flier and…

Melkam Gena!

  1. I know it said to email you with questions, but I’m a rule breaker ;o)
    Plus I thought a few others might have the same question.
    If we already sponsor a child at Children’s Heaven, would it be possible to fill a backpack specifically for that child? I understand it may be difficult, logistically, to get them to the right child, so I understand if the answer is no.
    Can I send a gift for Hanna and the other ladies?
    Thanks Kim!

  2. Hi Renee

    Not sure if Kim got back to you, but our hope is to connect families with the kids they sponsor. Plan to fill a bag for your kiddo and we’ll do the rest!

  3. Hi Renee, Happy to see your email! Thanks again for being our courier awhile back for Hanna, we would still love to do a blog post on your trip. 🙂

    I have a list of the girls names at Children’s Heaven. If you can email me at kim@ethiopianorphanrelief.org I’ll match you to your sponsor child.

    Paige and I are traveling to Ethiopia in June 2011 for EOR and we would be happy to take a package for you then too.

    Lory, were so happy you can deliver our backpacks. Thanks so much.
