Vanessa has no time to rest or acclimate as we are hitting the ground running today ... with assembly of 200 bags of toys, art supplies and books for the refugee kids. Here she is explaining what’s in each basket:

All items in the bags were made possible by the kindness and support of both individual donors and sponsors.


It took us a full 12 hours to assemble and count the bags (we had to do many recounts the more tired we got) and we were lucky to have the help of some of Walid’s beautiful friends. Big thanks to this group!'s time for bed. The van arrives tomorrow at 8am to be loaded for DISTRIBUTION!
