Haiti/Christmas

by Ceri Jones

Hiya people,

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve managed to book my time off work for the Haiti trip in February so thank you so much for your prayers!!

I thought this would be a good time (if not a little late!) to remind you of the link that I gave you last year…

…”If you are planning to buy any Christmas presents on-line this year, if you start from the www.buy.at/Haitihospitalappeal site, and link from there to your favourite sites (Amazon, Marks & Spencer, Play.com, HMV etc) and buy as you normally would. You get the same discounts and offers, but as you started from the Haiti web shop, the Haiti Hospital Appeal will receive a donation from the site you purchase from – for free!”…

Carwyn has also asked me to make you aware of the following site…

http://www.globalgiving.co.uk/pr/2300/proj2229a.html

…”as Haiti Hospital Appeal have been enterd into a competition with some other charities to see who can raise the most amount of money between now and Dec 15th.  Basically if we raise $5,000 and get 50 different supporters to sponsor us we win $2,500.  If we raise the most money over all we win $10,000, and if we recieve the most unique individual donations we win $15,000.  All you need to do is make a donation, even if it’s only £1!  The more we get the better.”

Carwyn and Reninca move out to Haiti just after Christmas for a whole year so I know they would value your prayers!!! As you can imagine things are a little hectic for them as they sort out their UK work/home/lives and get ready to move out.
The charity’s website address is http://www.haitihospitalappeal.org/ and there is a small team there at the moment… so pray away!! (The team also have a blog on the website while they are away which includes some lush news about some of the children you will have heared of from my last trip).
Love you all,
See you at Christmas.
