I just wanted to share a couple of things with you guys, in case you didn't see The Sound of Hope Blogs about these two events. (Sidenote - if you don't get blog updates for The Sound of Hope you should definitely sign up! Just enter your email in the upper right corner of this page. We post a lot of stories, videos, and pictures there that I don't share here - especially when we're overseas. You can also follow The Sound of Hope on facebook and twitter.)
#1 - Book Drive for Swaziland!
We've decided to add a Children's Library to each of our Children's Homes overseas, and we're starting with Swaziland. Everyone can be a part of this - even if you just send 1 book (maybe your child's favorite bedtime story?) We leave soon and will be taking the books with us - so we need all your donated books in by March 7th. (If you live in the B'ham area, you can contact me and bring them by my house.) Check out the blog for more details about what kind of books we need and where to send them, or click here to donate funds for the project!
#2 - kNOw More Orphans Conference
We're really excited about this conference that's happening in Birmingham next weekend (March 10th). For those of you in Alabama (or within driving distance) - this is a great way to find out how you can be a part of caring for orphans in the US and around the world! You can register HERE for the event. The Sound of Hope will be a part of the Resource Expo, so be sure to come by our table and say hello!
