Pray for Pakistan

We chose Pakistani Action Packs as our family service project for this Passover/Lent season. The kids have been collecting money. I planned to do the "Blessing Box" concept, but I can't find the list on the Internet. I found it this a.m. and lost it when my computer shut down. This list has daily little things like, "give .01 for each pair of socks you own" etc......but it seems that we're collecting without "the list". I may come up with my own. LOL

We finally made a box today to collect our donations.

The kids loved transferring the collected money to the box.

These came today too. We still haven't received the action packs.....and I think I should have bought some of these...these were free and I think the boys want some too.

I called VOM on monday because my 2-week old order had not yet arrived. The Action Packs are back ordered. I mentioned that my order was for a birthday party and the woman put me on hold and called the warehouse. "We're so sorry. He is going to try and scrounge up an action pack and get it, along with the rest of your order (10 bracelets and shirt for Emma) in the mail." I've been sweating it out all week! It arrived today! But with the wrong shirt. Hope yours comes by the time you're ready to fill it.

I was going to ask you about this yesterday and forgot. LOL

Wow. I guess that we'll fill them when they arrive....this will be project through Lent - hopefully by 6 weeks they'll get some in stock? I suppose it's a good thing that they are back-ordered? It beats simply poor "customer/donor" service. LOL
