Thank you!

Thank you for your donations to Sarah's Kids!

I've been posting my cash total in the sidebar under the ChipIn. So while it looks like, according to ChipIn, I'm not doing much, The total is actually really growing. Part of that is because people who donate through my church can receive a tax deduction for the donation. I'm going to have to look for another counter that better keeps track of my goal.

If you have been thinking about donating, but aren't really sure about where your money is going, please read this post by Sarah. In it, she explains exactly what happens to the money you donate.

What about the money you give to me for Sarah's kids? I have to check with Sarah, but based on reading her post above, I think I will deliver it to her via India's Hope, who will safely wire the amount to her. There is the option to bring it in cash, but that's a lot of cash! I'm not sure I would feel comfortable doing that. I do plan to get it to her in the most cost effective manner possible. Do they make $4000 traveler's checks????

And one thing I am considering using the money for is these wheelchairs. Watch the video--they are VERY cool! Of course, I do plan to consult with Sarah and see where her greatest need is when we go.
