A trip of this nature costs quite a bit. We have been able to secure our flights thanks to points Lacey has earned with her credit card, but we are still in need of funds to cover our lodging, food, and transportation costs. These must be donated directly to Home of Hope. We also require cash donations to help cover our immunizations, flight taxes, spending money for airport layovers and additional food, as well as donations to leave in Africa. Our current need totals about $6500. We are also collecting items to leave as gifts such as cloth diaper covers, medical supplies, birthing/teaching supplies (as I will be working with expectant mothers), small toys and clothing. Any help would be very welcome. Our blog, complete with links and instructions to donate directly to Home of Hope, can be found at http://momsmissionofhope.blogspot.ca.
Donations can also be mailed to me at #2, 2318 – 23rd Street North, Lethbridge, AB Canada T1H 4R7. Donations to Home of Hope need to be received three weeks prior to our departure.
Thank you so much for reading our story. Thank you especially to Connie Livingston and BirthSource for sharing it with all of you.
