Hey guys—I wanted to clarify some confusing things about my last post:
1. There are already guards in place at HOREC—since the last attempted
break-in (the one I wrote about two posts ago), people stepped up
immediately and hired the guards to start the night following the
incident….incredible!! So, the money anyone gives for security at
HOREC will be used to maintain the guards (we’d love to be able to
keep them permanently rather than just for this month that they have
been paid for) and to finish funding the electric fence that was
started in November.
2. If it is security you are interested in funding, you can go
directly to www.brightpointforchildren.org and click on “Donate Now.”
Then you can check ‘general donation’ and write that you wish for it
to go towards HOREC (or Strong Tower) in the comment box. They will
send you a tax receipt in the mail. Also, check out their webpage and
look around—there are numerous children who need to be sponsored, some
of whom are my kids at HOREC.
3. If you wish to send a check, let me
give you the address of my church there:
Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church
4385 Lower Roswell Road
Marietta, GA 30068
Write Annie Coppedge/Kenya on the for line of the check and you will
receive a tax receipt in the mail. Contact Gaylyn Kelly if you have
4. If you wish to send a package to Kenya, you can send it to my
friend Phoebe. She suggests the best/safest/cheapest way to send to
Kenya is through DHL. You can send any packages to:
Phoebe Muthoni Maina
**please let me know if/when you send one so that I can know to be on
the lookout for it’s arrival. Thanks so much! firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Feel free to contact me with any questions… I might be a little bit
slow to reply, but I promise it will be within 3 days or so.
Thanks so much everyone for your generosity…. I am so very thankful!!!
