Point Hope, the charity I founded to be the voice for forgotten children domestically and abroad, is eager to accept your donations and use them to continue the educational quest of children in Africa. Not only is Point Hope willing to send school supplies, but if you have other “stuff” taking up space in your life, things that are usable but perhaps an older model of your new gadget, or household stuff taking up space on your shelves, we will use it to “Stuff the Bus” with much-needed supplies heading to West Africa. All this stuff will fill the homes, schools and skills training centers of Point Hope Village, a special place for orphans and widows to live safely and well.
What items are needed?
Diapers and Depends, in all sizes
Medical supplies for wound care: gauze bandages, wraps like 3MTM CobanTM
Household goods such as twin sheet sets and towels of all sizes
New or gently used clean clothing for baby to adult sizes
Little Tikes products such as cars, slides and tables
Electronics such as digital cameras, cell phones with SIM cards, laptop computers, electronic tablets, e-readers
Games and sturdy toys
If it still works, we can probably put it to good use. You can help us by bringing or shipping your stuff to:
5889 St Hwy 303 NE, #109
Bremerton, WA 98311
Include your contact information with your stuff and 5 of you, whose names will be drawn at random, will receive a signed print of one of my paintings and an autographed copy of my latest book, “Arms Full of Love.” We will be collecting stuff through the end of June. Send a picture of you with your stuff and you could find yourself being thanked publically on my Facebook page, as well as the Point Hope page! Want to know more? Send an email to Admin@pointhope.org, where a small band of caring people will get right back to you.
