Will YOU Help?!

Friends, friends of friends.. of friends.. of friends (ask everyone you know to help!)

Our hearts are broken for those people in Haiti. We can't even begin to imagine the heart ache of the people devastated by this massive earthquake. Not being able to find your family, not being able to find food or shelter.

Did you know that 80% of the people in Haiti live off less than $2 per day? Most the people don't have electricity or running water. This country is poverty stricken and they need our help, TODAY!!

We have decided to organize a project that will directly help the people of Haiti. We have decided to assemble 100 Hygiene Kits - but we can't do it alone. Will YOU help?

This week we are asking for donations to put these kits together. Here is what wee need. (All items can be purchased at Dollar Stores)

100 Gallon Sized Ziplock Bags
200 Plastic Combs - no sharp edges
400 Toothbrushes - must be packaged
100 Tubes of Toothpaste
200 bars of soap
200 15x25 inch hand towels - can be purchased or made with terry cloth by zig zagging or surging the edges

Please help us reach our goal of 100 Hygiene Kits. If everyone would just provide ONE item we know we can make this happen!! (Or even better - rally everyone you know, family, friends coworkers and get lots of items to donate). NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL!

Donations can be dropped off at my house. Email leslieamoss(at)gmail(dot)com for address and directions.

If you would like to help assemble the kits please join us on Saturday January 23rd at 9 AM at Leslie's house.

If you would like to make a monetary donation to help buy supplies you can send a check to me or you can send money through PayPal (leslieamoss(at)gmail(dot)com).

100% of what is donated will go to making these kits.

Together we CAN make a difference!
Together we WILL make a difference!

Will YOU help? Please join us! (or start your own project!!)

Fridge Lock

I need a lock for my fridge. Stella has figured out how to open it and she gets out what she wants when she wants. When she wants things like string cheese or an orange its no big deal - and actually helpful that she can do it herself. However this week we've had a few incidents that I feel grant the need for a lock on my refrigerator.

Thursday - I walked downstairs and the door to the fridge was wide opened. I could not see Stella anywhere. I called her name. And she responds "NO mom, don't find me!" I said Stella where are you? She yells back "Don't find the candy, mom!" I found her under the kitchen table with a bag full of chocolate candy unwrapped and stuffing her face full by the handfuls.

Friday - Joe walked in from work to find Stella on the kitchen floor with a half gallon of ice cream and a measuring cup. She was scooping ice cream into her mouth as fast as she could!

Tuesday -while I was working Stella slipped downstairs to play. She was being quiet for way too long and would respond to my calls. I go downstairs to find her in front of the fridge with an open box of eggs. She was breaking them on the floor and on her body. She was covered in head to toe in raw egg. I picked her up, stripped her down and put her in the tub. She cried the entire time she was in the tub because she did not want to be clean.

Wed - I asked Stella what she wanted for lunch. she went to the fridge and pulled out the sour cream. I told her that she cold not just have sour cream for lunch but that I'd make her a burrito so she could dip it into the sour cream. She got mad, ran to the stairs and threw the sour cream down to the landing. It exploded everywhere. Needless to say she got a long time out. And when her dad came home from work and asked her what she did she told him all about it with a huge smile on her face!

So... its not that i want a refrigerator lock, i actually NEED one! I've tried tying the handles together with a ribbon but she is too smart for that. Any suggestions? I just want a latch.. not an actual pad lock!
