International Concerns for Children, Inc.
The donations effort is ongoing collection of clothes, toys, medicine, medical supples, school supplies, household goods to be sent to agencies to hand carry to their orphanages for the good of all the kids there. People can help by collecting donations for agencies in their area. Of course, all donations MUST be perfect: on clothes all buttons present, zippers working, no stains, holes, rips, etc.; toys must have all parts and not be shabby-looking; shoes must not be much worn, and must be clean (denatured alcohol does a great job on what the washing machine can't get out); medicines must have an expiration date at least 3 and preferably 6 months away.
