Presents have been bought for all our children. We have also bought a Christmas tree, decorations, wrapper, cards and other paraphernalia; we have ordered a cake, chickens, meat, etc. But we have spent a lot more on presents than we expected! So we are asking people if they can contribute to the extra costs, which come to about $250.
Presents around the Christmas tree
The kids will open their presents around the Christmas tree when they get up in the morning. The pile of presents will be a lot bigger than the tree, but I’m sure the pile will go down quickly!
In addition to 22 children, our family and about 8 staff, there will be other visitors, staff who are not able to travel home and several waifs and strays to feed. So we have also increased our food order, and we will have a big barbecue, and people can prepare their own meal if they like.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. Perhaps you will be able to tell your friends about our appeal? We are grateful for even the smallest contributions.
