Venezuelan Family Fundraiser

About 10 years ago my mother went on a missionary trip to Veneuzuela where she was taken in by various families, and was in her words “treated like a queen” by families who didn’t have much.

Shortly after these multiple trips to hospitable families, the Country started to take a turn for the worse. One of the familes became very close to my mom. That family consisted of a Mother & Father(who unfortunately passed away a couple years ago), two adult daughters, their son in law and very recently their baby grand daughter.

After having Lilly I began to donate some of her clothing, and baby items to them for their baby, in shipments my mother would send to them. At the end of 2018 I decided to send my own care packages to them with baby clothes, toiletries, non perishable food, and medicines for both the adults and the baby. Many of the items I was able to get at local Dollar stores and through donations. Once I verified that the items did get to them I was overwhelmed with the extreme gratitude that they gave me for sending them things that we take for granted here in America. Things like shampoo & conditioner and toothpaste are now luxuries over there.

I’m asking for help because I can’t do this alone. They are in extreme need of everything you could imagine. Some of the items they’re in need of are the following:

-Diapers & wipes (size 5-6)
-Baby medicine (baby tylenol, motrin, children’s antihistimines, saline nasal spray)
-Diaper creams
-Baby lotions & soaps
-Baby food
-Baby formula
-Baby girl clothes (size 12months +)
-Adult Toiletries (ibuprofen, shampoos, conditioners, disposable razors, deodorant, feminine products, toothpaste)
-Non perishable foods (rice, beans, canned meats, canned vegetables, pasta, corn meal, cereals, powdered milk)

If you would rather donate some of items listed above to me I will gladly take them to ship to them. If you prefer to just donate money that is why I created this gofundme page. Not only would you be donating towards the items mentioned above, but the shipping costs associated with sending everything via frieghtline boat.

Thank you in advance to anyone that donates to this cause, you have no idea what a tremendous blessing it is to those who have nothing.
