Thanks to everyone, but a special mention has to go to Visit Scotland (via Nicola).
A couple of things I need to let you know about.
Firstly, I talked about going back to Ethiopia this year and taking your donations to the orphanages supported by Ethiopian Orphanage Relief (through talking to Danielle the founder) and the orphanage I worked in. Danielle is going to be in Addis in December and we’ve agreed that I will look into courier services to send the underwear to where she will be staying, and she will distribute. I struggled a bit with this as the intention was for me to take the underwear myself, but am confident that our donations will get to the orphanages through Danielle. It’s not concrete but this is the plan.
There is good and bad news on the back of this revised plan! The good news is that given the overwhelming support and enthusiasm of people, I’ve made plans to support the distributor in Kenya!! Therefore the bad news is that we (you!) need to keep collecting…
There is a trip scheduled for January but felt this was a bit soon, once I know dates for the trip I will let you know but it will be next year.
