As an organization, Dignity:Liberia has been blessed as well. We give our thanks to all of you for your ongoing interest and support.
I recently received an email from my friend, Dignity:Liberia secretary Linda Thornsberry, who wrote that she and Kathi had packed 4 boxes for shipping. The items they packed were made by ladies at her church who are part of the First Baptist Church Lee’s Summit Crafter’s Group. The group’s leader, Jane Pritchett, organized a group of 10 – 15 women who generously shared their time, talent, and resources to make the following items:
- 22 dolls
- Items for feminine hygiene kits:
- 58 bags
- 114 shields
- 300 cloth pads
- 30 baby blankets
- 20 pillowcases
- 30 maternity dresses
Martha Griffin, with whom I served in Liberia this past February, was a great consultant to the Crafter’s Group. She also sewed, embroidered, and provided labels. We are so grateful to these caring ladies. We give thanks for them and for all of you who have supported us by making us your charitable organization on Amazon Smile, by making a purchase from our wish list, by making cash gifts, by donating medical supplies, by praying for us, by serving as Dignity Advocates, by liking us on Facebook and sharing our posts, by donating talents, such as updating our website, and working behind the scenes.
Our friends in Liberia celebrated Thanksgiving earlier this month. Next week, we celebrate in the United States. Yes, we give thanks, and we have prepared a short video to express our appreciation. Happy Thanksgiving!
