Our children’s home in Kenya is in desperate need of your support. We currently have 63 children under our care on Doyle Farm, and we are facing a critical shortage of clothing for them. When it’s time for our children to return home, they take two or three sets of clothes with them and with the many new arrivals joining our family, we find ourselves with the bare minimum amount of clothing to meet their needs.
We are reaching out to you, our ever supportive community, to ask for your help. Our goal is to raise funds to purchase second-hand clothes from local markets. Not only will this provide our children with much-needed clothing, but it will also support our local community by boosting the economy and creating a sustainable cycle of giving.
By contributing to our fundraising campaign, you will be making a tangible difference in the lives of the children in our care. Your generous donation will help us provide them with clean, comfortable clothes that they deserve, giving them a sense of dignity and improving their overall well-being.
Can you donate clothes for us to send to Kenya?
We sincerely appreciate your generosity and willingness to donate clothing items to our kids in Kenya. I can tell you, nothing would make us (and them!) happier! However, due to logistical challenges, we cannot accept physical clothing donations. Shipping costs to Kenya are prohibitively expensive, and upon arrival, we are often faced with exorbitant taxes, sometimes exceeding three times the value of the clothes. Our only feasible option for transporting items is when Sarah travels and can bring them in her suitcase. Unfortunately, her suitcases are consistently filled to capacity. While we are unable to accept physical donations, your financial support will enable us to purchase clothing locally and ensure that every child receives the clothing they urgently need. We greatly appreciate your understanding and please ask you to contribute to our fundraising campaign, which will have an immediate and lasting impact on their lives.
Here’s how you can help:
- Make a financial contribution: Every dollar you donate will go directly towards purchasing second-hand clothing for our children’s home. No amount is too small, and every contribution counts!
- Spread the word: Share our campaign with your friends, family, and colleagues. By raising awareness about our cause, you can help us reach a wider audience and generate more support for these deserving children.
