Care Package Ideas

Show us you care! Here are some ideas of things you could send us to let us know you’re thinking about us:
~Personal letter, card, or email (<--practically free, almost instantaneous! For that matter, so is a comment on our blog :)…we would love to hear how you are doing and what’s going on in your corner of the world.
~Birthday cards:
Donnie: February 24 (Better get on this…it’s coming up soon!)
Allison: May 30
Micah Jude: July 25
~Music CD’s (these fit nicely in a greeting card)
~DVD’s (No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency was recommended to us.)
~Kool-Aid packets (Cherry and Fruit Punch are faves)
~Mother’s Milk Tea
~Candy (Original Skittles, Original Starbursts, M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces are favorites)
~Sauce packets (Pad Thai, Pasta sauces are ones we currently don’t have many of)
~Hot chocolate packets (Nice cold season treat!)
~Guitar strings (I prefer lights)
~Toys for Micah (He’s starting to enjoy bathtime!)

Our mailing address is BP 202, Tahoua, Republic of Niger and any packages or letters should be sent via air mail, if it goes surface it has a tendency to never arrive.
