Help buy a piece of the pad

You'll notice just to the right of this post is a ChipIn button. I'm trying to raise $1,000 to buy two iPads for COTP. Why iPads you ask, well let me tell you!

First things first - Apple products can handle the harsh climate in Haiti. I don't know what it is, but other computers seem to crap out a lot quicker than Apple. Kinda cool, because I'm a total Apple junkie. I speak their language when it comes to computers.

Why specifically iPads? Have you ever tried one? Amazing little contraptions. With an iPad they can link to their server so whoever is carrying it has access to everything. One will specifically be used to help inventory the pharmacy. This will ensure they have the life-saving meds and supplies they need at all times.

iPad - $499.

Saving a little life - priceless.

If you feel the passion, the call, the desire, or if your couch has some extra money in it, I'd LOVE it if you'd contribute to the cause.

Help buy a piece of the pad.

There are 40+ babies there right now. Imagine changing the diapers of 40+ babies. How many diapers and wipes would you go through in a day? Interesting you should ask. They need diapers. Specifically sizes 3 and 4. Having disposable diapers keeps them from having to use cloth ones. I know all you tree huggers - I'm married to one - cloth is better for the environment. But just think - there are no washing machines at COTP. A group of women washes all the clothes AND diapers BY HAND every single day. I don't know about you, but to me the thought of washing diapers for 40 is kinda gnarly.

Here's a complete list of urgent needs:
* Liquid hand soap
* Hand sanitizer
* Rice cereal
* Diapers all sizes - but right now sizes 3 & 4
* Baby lotion
* Bar soap

Here's where you can send the goods:
Bud and Jan Bonnema
Agape Flights CAP--11952
100 Airport Ave
Venice, FL 34285

Here's a thought to keep in the back of your brain. When you stay at a hotel next time, take all the soap products. Every day. You're paying for it. Save up those bars of soap and shampoo. When you've gathered a good stash, ship it off to Haiti. The nannies will thank you!
