Kitchen items for Haiti

I’m leaving for Haiti next Monday.  I have been collecting things since May to take there, but right now the plans are changing.  Licia sent me some items that the people in the village need.  So I will be going to the store to collect some of these items.  If you would like to donate anything, feel free to get them to me before Friday so I can pack them.  If you would like to donate cash, get that to me before Friday too and I can take it to them so that they can get new stuff for the people that lost everything.

Here are some things that households will need.  Keep in mind that some of these things I can’t take down there, but some we can.

This is a list that would cost someone $60 US to replace what they need:

To replace kitchen items:
motal/pestal
small iron pot
6 spoons
6 plates
small basin to wash dishes in
strainer
large iron pot
1 cooking spoon
6 cups
metal stand to cook on

All this for $60US

Twin mattress (no box spring) with a metal frame to lay on $160
double mattress (no box sprin) with a metal frame to lay on $300

1 cup of rice $0.89
1 gallon oil $10.50
1 cup of beans $0.76
1 cup of sugar $0.32
1 cup of flour $0.32
If you would like to sponsor a family for $60 let me know – I can get pictures for you too while I’m there!  This would change their life.  They lost it all and their kitchen items can be replaced for $60 – I just bought a  new item for my kitchen for $60.  It just doesn’t make sense does it?

  1. I would like to sponsor two of the families to help replace their kitchen items. Please tell me how to get the money to you.

  3. Hey, I just visited with Lori on thursday, and I took down a bunch of donations. When I got back to my house, I realized that I had one of the matches to a pair of shoes, and some pieces that go with some of the toys that we donated. Don’t ask me how they were forgotten, but they were. Anderson was on our way to Indy, where Micah had a doc appointment, but I will not be back down that way before they leave. Do you mind if I would send them to you with some kitchen items to take down on your trip? If not, I will try to figure something else out. Are you going to be able to make it out to Cazale? I will be praying for your trip, and praying HARD that you get to squeeze your kiddos!!!

  4. Jamie, Do you know yet if you’ll spend any time in PAP on your trip? We’ll be there with our kids, Lord willing, from the 23rd to the 30th. I hope our paths cross somehow!

  5. Jamie,

    We are very interested in making a donation as well as doing some kind of fundraiser amongst our family and friends. What is the best way to handle something like this? Thank you so much.

  6. hey chicka-i’d love to sponsor one of the families… let me know how to get everything to you before you leave!
