Gift bags and quilts

Having surgery is tough and at a young age it can be even tougher.

In order to create a more friendly atmosphere, for the past 8 years Partner for Surgery has been taking gift bags to Guatemalan children, and more recently, dozens of beautiful quilts, both made lovingly by a McLean, Virginia church.

Inside the bags, children find items that are not available to them in Guatemala – coloring books, crayons, and stuffed animals. In fact, sometimes even the parents are not familiar with coloring books and we see them with crayons in hand as well!

The quilts are especially important to keep the children warm. Many come from hotter areas and are not prepared for their stay at the cooler, higher altitudes. And when they return to their villages, the quilts add a wonderful touch to their very sparsely furnished homes.

Mark your calendars!

During the week of April 3rd to 7th, GlobalGiving will be matching donations up to $50 at 50% as part of their Little By Little campaign. This is their way of showing how even small donations can make a big change.

Don't forget to tell your friends and family!
