So the Al Badin’s are here, and the Barbar’s will be here in a week and a half. Both houses are pretty well set up and functional and we must say thank you for all the donations we’ve received so far.
The Al Badin’s have had two things to say about Canada:
Canadians are kind, wonderful, generous people. Canada is insanely cold.
Wow, and it isn’t even Winter yet. It’s important to remember that both families have been living in Jordan which, according to our research, is very warm. They’ve never seen leaves change colour, or felt the days get shorter and they've certainly never experienced a Canadian Winter. What we consider to be unseasonably warm, they think is unbelievably cold, so we need to draw on the Canadians being generous part to make sure they’re outfitted for our cold, cold Winter.
Remember: We need to make sure they have all this gear in any event, so if we don’t receive these as donations, we’ll have to spend money that could be spent elsewhere.
If you have any items to donate, please fill out our form (it helps us maintain what’s left of our sanity) and we will cheerfully arrange pickup.
