Thank you this week to...

The Quast Family (WA), The Cohen Family (CT), The Blackburn Family (AL), The Frakes Family (WA), The Willis Family (MO), and a big Thank you to the Hochstetler Family (IN) for the 100 Kissaluvs cloth diapers (they are awesome) and to the Kudwa Family and church family (MI) for the 6 HUGE boxes of coats and other items!! Again we are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and help for the children. We get tears in our eyes when we open every box thinking of the excitement these children will have. Because of all of you , the children will be blessed with things to call their own. So far, they will be able to play outside this winter when it is cold, sleep in warm sleepers and pajamas and wear new shoes and socks that fit their feet. How Awesome is that. We are hoping to someday deliver the stuff ourselves!!

We hope people are starting to receive your cookbooks and we are excited to see your responses. We hope everyone loves them!!

We had a fundraising garage sale this weekend and made over $400 and sold 7 cookbooks!

We are in the process of sorting and putting everything in inventory and we will get you a count on everything tomorrow.

Thank you all again and don't forget Hygiene products in May.

Holy Toledo! We were in missouri this last weekend, and drove right through Lebanon! When we got home i walked in and saw the box from you guys from Lebanon!!! i was so disgusted that i forgot you were there! I would have brought stuff to send to Kaz and picked up my books. Anyways! The books are AMAZING!!!!! They look so good! I am so proud to give them to my family as gifts! My hubby has already gone through and highlighted what he wants to try! Good idea on the yardsale fundraiser, i think i will try that... Thanks so much for all the effort you put in! -christel, Jerry and Alex!
