Today I received an email that two boxes of blankets and bears arrived successfully at the orphanage in Uganda, find out more about them at http://www.orphansforchrist.com/. They are still waiting on a third box to give out all 200 blankets and bears to their children.
Yesterday the missionaries from Nicaragua were in the states for dental work and were able to stop by and visit. This is were we went this June and passed out blankets and bears to an orphanage and a children's hospital, you can find out more about them at http://www.saviorstear.org/ .
Saturday the lady that solely runs an orphange in Liberia called to say she was able to pass out all the blankets and bears we sent earlier this year. She just got back from a 9 week visit there, her link is http://www.lighthousecommunitycog.com/misson_of_hope_orphanage .
Thanks for all you do to support our cause, all this good news wouldn't be made possible without your support. Please check out some of these websites to see how you can help out these children. Keep watching the blog for pictures of these children receiveing their blankets and bears once the leaders get them to me!
Our mission is to send the "tangible" love of Jesus Christ to his orphaned children throughout the world in the form of a blanket or bear.
Our vision is to send that warm and cuddly feeling of love through blankets and bears to orphanages in Africa, then Asia and eventually to all third world countries.

We had 62 runners this year at the 5k at Medipark! Race results are posted at http://lonestarrunnersclub.net/ under results and then Blankets and Bears Fun Run 5K. Thanks to all the sponsors, runners, friends and family who invited runners or called sponsors, volunteers who came out and help and especially my husband Luke for everything! None of this could have been so successful without all of you...way to go!
