Wanna Be An Elf or Need Some Elf-spiration???

Be prepared to laugh and receive some “elf-spiration” once you watch Sprinkle and Dinkle get in the Christmas spirit! ** 

Friends have asked if they can still be involved in the Watoto Christmas project…and I HAVE THE ANSWER!  

Some donated boxes will likely contain “unauthorized” gifts*.  We will have to replace certain items in the boxes with other items.  

Enter YOU.  

This week I am going to be taking donations of gently used (or new) items that could help fill “incomplete” boxes.  

Have items to share?  Here is the general guidelines for what we are looking for and the age/gender breakdowns.  (I excluded the little ones–those boxes seem to come in complete and FULL…the older kids and moms are the ones who seem to need some assistance.)

  • 11–16yrs: comic books, novels, board games, card games, jigsaw puzzles, hair clips, yo-yos
  • 17yrs+: caps, designer T-shirts, watches, wallets, purses, novels, jewelry, lotions, nail polish
  • Mums (widows/caretakers): lotions, body scents, scarves, shower gels, hand creams, journals, devotionals, jewelry, purse, nail polish 
Please DO double bag any liquids using Ziploc bags.
*Please DO NOT INCLUDE:   War-related items such as toy guns, knives or military figures; ANY food, medications or vitamins; breakable items; aerosol cans; hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, etc. as they are already provided through Watoto sponsorships.

I will be receiving donations through December 2nd.  

Please contact me directly or via:

No donations…but still want to serve??  I HAVE OPTIONS!

Please consider writing a handwritten letter.  This can be from YOU or your children or both!  Many boxes we have received so far do not have letters!   Please specify what gender/age group on the envelope! (2-5, 6-10, 11-16, 17+, Mum)

You can also help with our sorting project on December 3rd:


Thank you for being willing to consider sharing out of the overflow of what God has given you!
