Our time in Canada is already halfway over. As I write this, a snow storm is blustering outside and we’re happily cozy inside in our sweaters. It’s a long way from Macha. We’ve been enjoying quality time with family, sleepovers with cousins, swimming, catching up with friends over delicious food and anticipating Christmas in just over a week.
As we’ve shared with many about our work at MICS, a question we often get is “How can we help?” We are blessed to be in a situation where we don’t need to raise any additional personal support for our family at this time. Thank you to to the dozens of you who are faithfully supporting us in this way.
But, if you’d like to support MICS right now in a very practical way, here are a few ways you can help…
- We have an Amazon wish list. You can purchase items off the list and they will be sent to us to take back with us in January. There are many items on the list but in particular I would love to bring back a pocket chart for each classroom to have… 9 in total. It’s a simple tool that provides endless learning opportunities. Would you consider purchasing one? Check out the list here. It would be helpful to have these items in the next few weeks so we can pack! (**Edit: 15 hours after publishing this we have all 9 pocket charts on the way. Thanks for your generosity! There are other items still on the list for those interested!)
- We are looking to bring back unlocked smart phones and tablets (new or used) to be used for learning apps.
- Gift cards for Amazon, Best Buy, Google Play or iTunes are useful to buy educational resources and learning apps.
In this season of giving, we know there are many valuable organizations to support. If you’re interested in being part of MICS in this way, or have any questions, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
