Is there anything you need or that I can donate for you trip? The answer is absolutely! We are currently collecting many over the counter medications for our clinics, as well as baby and children clothes. Here's a list of some of the most requested items:
Tylenol Children's Elixir
Children's Ibuprofen suspension
Chewable multi vitamin (no gummy vitamins please!)
Travel size shampoo
Zip lock bags (any size)
Empty travel size containers
Handing out donated flip flops to the orphans
I am also accepting donations towards the cost of this mission; with my fundraising goal being $1000. Donations will also be used towards purchasing prescription medications. Checks can be made out to myself or Red Rocks Church with Haiti-April in the memo line. If you need an address, just message me.
Personally, I am well prepared for this trip. However, I do need a couple of items to make the most out of my trip. Believe it or not, I don't have a stethoscope! If anyone has an old one they would consider donating, I would greatly appreciate it! I would love one that I could dedicate solely to mission trips!
Also, since we will be spending a few days in the mountains, I would love to borrow a simple point and shoot digital camera that uses regular batteries. On my last trip, my rechargeable battery died and I missed out on many beautiful photography opportunities. Since we will go 3 days without electricity, I want to be prepared this time!
