Welcome to the
Wishing on an Angel -
Christmas for Orphans 2004: Ukraine
page of web links

Thank you for your interest and for any help you may provide to the orphans of Ukraine.

This year we are working to provide clothes, shoes, toys, school supplies, and therapy equipment to 1,320 children ages 0-18 in Ukraine.  We are also hoping to raise the funds needed for shipping these items and for purchasing laundry and kitchen equipment for several of the 12 orphanages represented.  The children desperately need shoes and socks.  Because of the cold weather, the girls usually wear tights.  Coats and gloves are wonderful gifts as well! The smaller children need warm hats!!
*Clean out your closets, looking for gently worn children’s clothing, knit caps, socks, or coats.  Please wash them before shipping to the address below.
*Ask your elementary schools if they have unclaimed clothes left in their ‘lost-and-found’ closets
*Ask your church or civic groups to get involved
