A fellow blogger got a hold of me, Maddy, some of you may know her. She shares beautiful photography on her blog.
To learn about the children’s home check out this link Connie Maxwell. From what I saw it is a place meant to help kids and families in a Christian environment. You can donate directly on the site as well if you would like to help out that way too. 🙂
Amazon Smile– I also found out while looking on the site that this charity is on Amazon Smile. If you are not familiar with it, if you happen to shop on Amazon, go to Amazon Smile, and you have the option to choose a charity of your choice. THERE ARE A LOT! Whatever you buy on Amazon Smile (make sure you are not on Amazon) a portion of what you buy Amazon will then donate a small percentage to the charity of your choice.
Update: Maddy is taking money donations until February 22nd, 2019 (Amazon gift cards help too!). If you would like to help out after this date, go to the site link instead and see what options are available.
Maddy let me know that she is asking for donations so she can help an orphanage near her. These are the specific items the orphanage runs out of daily.
“They are mainly in need of household products and toiletries ( paper towels, napkins, shampoo, conditioner, zip lock bags )”
Maddy let me know that you can also buy Amazon gift cards and then she can get the items. She suggested, after contacting her, to send things to an address she will provide so that way there are no in between (extra shipping, etc). She is also accepting money donations.
To contact Maddy, if you want to help, you can reach her at her firstname.lastname@example.org .
When To Get Stuff To Maddy– I asked her what kind of time frame is she looking at and she is thinking mid-February or late February is when she will deliver the supplies.
Remember, it does not have to be a lot. I was recently asking God ways for me to help out and within about 24 hours that is when Maddy reached out to me. We are told to help orphans, the homeless, anyone who needs help ❤
Give what you can.
