Specialist Llamas Emails an Update from Kabul on His "Blanket" Project
I'm sharing this entire email with you (instead of just the main text) because I want everyone to see how grateful this young man is. If you don't yet know about this project, read his original guest post on this blog. And then I hope you'll help him too.
Dear Mrs. Miller,
I hope everything is going well for you. I'm really exited! I've started to receive boxes of goods. The flights had been canceled to the area because of weather and security issues, but mail is now coming in. I'm hoping boxes keep coming.
So far I've got 27 blankets, 20 stuffed animals, 20 brand-new winter coats for children, and some school supplies, including color pencils, pencils, pencil sharpeners, rulers. I'm still waiting for the shipment from Spirit of America so I can go do my first drop off!! It's going to be great!!
I'm trying to work with other agencies to support my effort so hopefully it works out and we can make a difference in Afghanistan!
I'm so grateful to you for all your support and help by spreading the word!! It wouldn't be the same without all your efforts. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
I will keep you posted on the coming days!
