Always Support Our Heroes | Gallery
Every year I do a "Christmas in July" for the orphans I support in South Africa. However, in April, I am doing a humanitarian aid volunteer vacation to visit Sinethemba & Mpumelelo. Thanks so much to those who have so generously donated to bring hope to needy children on the other side of the globe.
This year my volunteer vacation was to Johannesburg, South Africa to visit the orphanages I've been supporting for years (Mpumelelo and Sinethemba). These photos are of our adventure. Thankfully my "niece", Amy Butler, was patient in me fulfilling a 9 year old promise ... and sharing in an adventure of a lifetime.
For my birthday this year, I decided to have people help me put together "party in a box" for our troops. A month later, items were sent for St. Patrick's Day. I've included photos from the recipients for you to enjoy as well. :~)
Here are the photos of the items collected and sent to 9 different units, the Combat Surgical Hospital in Afghanistan, and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center as my fifth "Mail Call for Our Heroes". Thank you to everyone who participated.
