Gena Giving Project Update – October

Wow! Just last month EOR kicked off our Project Gena idea and you our friends took the idea and shopped it. Were happy to share we are half way there! You have graciously filled a total of 74 backpacks for children at FOVC & Children’s Heaven in Ethiopia. We have 56 more to go. Can you help?

Boy or girl? email kim@ethiopianorphanrelief.org to make plans to shop for a specific child. To busy to shop? For a donation of $15.00 we’ll shop for you and send a special cards to the honoree of your choice. Maybe do a backpack in honor of a family member, perfect gift for the girlfriend who has everything, the post carrier, a perfect birthday gift.

Danielle a.k.a. Santa's Elf

 

Meet Danielle…This Portland “Oma” has a love for Ethiopia. Her grandson arrived into

their family from the Toukoul Orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Last week Danielle dropped off gifts for 25 backpacks. My living room now looks like Santa’s village. Danielle shared that she & her husband usually do a giving tree each holiday. When they learned about Project Gena they wanted to help the children from their grandson’s homeland. She also enclosed a hand written note to each of the 25 children. It brought tears to my eyes to see so much love. Thank you Danielle for your giving heart.

When shopping for your treasures please take photos and send to us. We will be highlighting you the month of November.

Thanks again to everyone who’s helping us with the project.
