Invest Hope (the mission we are starting in Haiti) is in need if some items. These are more high ticket items than the donations I usually ask for. If you have any of the following items and would be willing to donate them, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Used is great as long as it works and the batteries still can charge. It is nearly impossible to fix electronic stuff here, so it has to be in working condition.
-Digital Camera-mine finally died. But Haiti is rough on cameras so it's 2.5 year life span what pretty good. Preferably one that has at least 10 MP.
-cell phones -Blackberry phones that have a place for a Sim card in the back. To check, just take the back cover off and sometimes to have to remove the battery to see it but there will be a little "pocket" to slide a Sim card into. iPhones-same thing, with a place for SIM card. And the old Razor phones work really really well down here. So if you happen to have one of those still laying around and don't need it anymore, please send it!
-Portable Projector- to show health/hygiene videos, have Children and teen outreach movie nights (this is hugely popular in a village with very little electricity).
-Old iPod with docking station/speaker. This is for the special needs room at the orphanage where we are dong therapy. I think the kids would benefit so much from listening to music during physical therapy. We would put classical and children's music on it.
-children's ceiling projector- again, for the special needs room. These children spend A Lot of time laying in bed staring at a white ceiling. If anyone has a projector that puts colorful stars or images onto the ceiling, we would love to be able to use it for the special needs kids. I think they would love it!
Well it's 330am so I'm going to try to get back to sleep. Pass along our wish list and if you have something To donate other than the items on this list, email me and I can let you kniw if we or another mission here in Haiti could use it.
Thanks so much!
