EXCITING OPPORTUNITY TO CONNECT WITH A CHILD!
Pushpyar Lakra is traveling to India in July and will be able to personally deliver gifts to each individual child. This is a great way to connect with your sponsored child or (for those who are not sponsors) to bless a child who has not been sponsored yet! Simply choose from our two easy options below : “We-Pack” or “You-Pack”
PLEASE NOTE: All packages or donations must be received no later than June 23rd, due to packing restrictions. (Give your package to the Lakras on Sundays or mail to them at PO Box 233, Lima, NY 14485.)
The “We-Pack” option: Mail us a check for $10 & we put together a fun pack for your child! Please include a letter to your child.
This year’s “We-Pack” Fun Packs will include: A colorful drawstring bag, beach ball, airplane glider (for boys) OR coin purse (for girls), 1 sheet of stickers, 2 friendship bracelets (so they can share with a friend!), bouncy ball, a bag of candy, pencil & a small stuffed sea turtle or dolphin. Your $10 will cover the cost of gift items as well as shipping fees.
The “You-Pack” option: Purchase small gifts (from the list below) & pack in a clear, quart size, zip top bag. Also include $5 to help with luggage fees and a letter to your child. Gift must weigh no more than 2 pounds. Please DO NOT send used items and DO NOT gift wrap any items. Thank you!
Acceptable gift items: Toothbrush & toothpaste, washcloth & soap, toy cars, finger puppets, bouncy balls,small stuffed animal, key chain, yo-yo, plastic jewelry (for girls), stickers, hard candy (no chocolate or liquids), Socks, small notepad or notebook, pens, pencils, pencil toppers, pencil sharpeners and washable markers/crayons or colored pencils (ONE package of these may be accepted outside the quart size bag)
PLEASE DO NOT include sharpie/permanent markers, toy guns/weapons, temporary tattoos or war related items.
For all Fun Packs: We HIGHLY recommend that you send a LETTER and a PICTURE of yourself, or your family. A letter and a picture will probably be the most encouraging item in your gift package!

Thank you! God bless you.
