Friend Care Packages

Lately I have made two care packages for my friends. The first one was for my friend Rebekah! Her and her family are going through a difficult transition and I wanted to cheer her up by making her a friend care package. It was mostly made of candy and sweets!! :-) She loves candy, so this was perfect for her! The second one was for my friend Izzy. Her father was recently deployed. It has been hard on her. She said they are going to send him a care package. So I'm making a care package for Izzy! It has things she likes to do and eat! :-) I also am making her "Open When..." letters for when she needs them. Have you ever given a friend a care package???

The Ebola Virus Disease

Info On The Ebola Virus Disease

The ebola virus disease (or just ebola) is a dangerous virus that is very contagious. Ebola has mostly affected west Africa areas, though, there has been one or two cases in the United States. 

Here is a photo of where ebola has affected. The most severely affected countries, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia have very weak health systems. So many people do not get the care they need. That is why there has been 7,492 cases and 3,439 have died because of ebola. Here is a link of ebola virus disease from wikipedia. It tells about what ebola is and how it affects people. Ebola is an awful disease! Scroll down to see how to help!

How To Help Fight Ebola

There are a few ways to help. 

#1 PRAY that is the most important thing you can do! Because God answers prayer! Pray for all the people who have ebola and that God will heal them. Pray for the families of those who have died and pray for God to comfort them. Pray for the doctors and nurses who are helping end ebola and pray that they will not get affected and that God will keep them safe. And lastly, pray for those here in the US sending supplies and for those helping in any way they can. 

#2 Look for an organization that helps end ebola. Samaritan's purse is one of the organizations I found that helps. You can go to their website HERE. At the bottom of the post on their website has a place to donate money to help end ebola. Please donate.

#3 Encourage others to donate and pray to help end ebola.

Please help end ebola, in any way you can! Thank you for reading!

October is here!

How can it be October already?????? So that means about three months till Christmas!! :-) Anyway, for the month of October, I am taking a break from earning money for True Hope Ukraine's new building and instead, I am taking any money I earn and using it to buy items to put in shoe boxes for kids in Liberia! Our church has a big shoe box packing night! (So I will take the items that I bought to that night for us to put in the boxes). After that night, we take the boxes to ICF and they ship them to Liberia. So please support our church and ICF in helping Liberia. Another way to help is going to the ICF's website and find out they are helping Liberia and other countries with the ebola virus outbreak. I will do another post about the ebola virus outbreak later this week.

Find out what is for sale HERE! Thanks for helping me send shoe boxes to kids!
