I woke up this morning to $750 more of donations, which brings our total up to $1768.57! Wow!
Our window of opportunity for my folks to deliver the money to Ethiopia is just about closed, however. If you are desperate to get the money to me, at this point you’ll have to overnight me a money order. Email me privately for details: owlhaven @ aol . com
The other option is to donate directly to the Soddo Hospital , which is where my sister and my parents will be working until August. Follow the directions on the webpage and donate to one of the funds listed. This is the hospital where Dr. Mary sends her patients when they need hospital care. In my understanding, they are a well-run organization– Dr. Mary’s husband is actually on the board of directors– and they do lots of great work there in Ethiopia.
