Hey! I got more pictures from LeAnna in Juba!
For those of you just tuning in, Chump Nation turned its awesome generosity to an orphanage school in Juba, South Sudan where my friend LeAnna, a USAID officer, is stationed. LeAnna created a X-mas wish list on Amazon for the school, in lieu of giving or receiving gifts this year, and unbeknownst to her, I published the list here, and chumps bought everything on the list within 24 hours. (Thus abusing the diplomatic pouch mail system apparently…. oops.)
The books, shoes, and toys were delivered at the school’s Christmas party, and I posted some pictures LeAnna sent earlier. But, she was back to read books to the kids, and posted more pictures of the loot we sent on Facebook.
So, in following up to yesterday’s post of getting rid of cheater crap, if anyone is having a yard sale and feeling generous with their proceeds, consider a donation to Confident Children Out of Conflict who run the orphanage school in Juba. (And another town to the north. We bought so much stuff, they divvied it up with another orphanage up country.) That link is to their Facebook page which has links to PayPal in various currencies. These people operate on a shoe string, and as anyone who reads the news knows, South Sudan is a hell hole, and these kids are caught up in it. Stuff to them means a LOT.
Without further ado, here’s more pictures! Chump Nation you ROCK. Thanks again for your donations and let’s do something like this every X-mas, okay?
