It is never too early to start gathering donations for Project Warm Hearts 2009

Thanks to Isla Gringo and Viva Veracruz there will be a Project Warm Hearts 2009. I started emptying my wallet of the small change and putting it in a bag a few weeks ago. Once it gets close to Christmas I will take the change to a bank to be counted and paid out in dollars. That money will go toward my donation to this year’s Project Warm Hearts.

p2080002 And Wayne is right! “You will never even miss these little coins but they will make a big difference in some child’s life.”

I already have some toys to take down to deliver to Wayne my next trip to Isla. I bought some stuffed animals shortly before Christmas to donate to the Clackamas County Fire Department when they had their annual Santa Parade. The Santa Parade was canceled due to the snow and ice making it unsafe for the volunteers to walk the streets to collect the toys. I will purchase some other toys to donate to the Santa Parade this year.

These little guys are really soft and will smoosh up in my suitcase pretty easily.  I will surely purchase some more friends as travel companions for these guys.


I just wanted to give a shout out to both Wayne and John for once again organizing Project Warm Hearts. Thanks guys!!!

  1. How fantastic of you! I’m sure the kids will LUV those stuffed animals! thanks for the shout out.

    • Wayne, More to come. I have plenty of time to hit a few good thrift stores for some warm clothes that I can pack down to Isla with me. I donated a good chunk of cash last year but wish thatI had given more.

  2. Jackie – Thanks for thinking of us and the Project. Now that we are being published by GlobalPost News we are getting a substantial increase in readership. We are looking forward to being able to do even more for the people of Ursulo Galvan this Holiday Season through Wayne and the kindness of people such as yourself.

    Thank you sooooo much!
