Through the generosity of many, I was able to purchase 100 blankets for Trees of Glory today. Thank goodness I brought a friend with me (and didn't take the kids) because we filled two shopping carts to the tippy top with blankets. It was quite the production at the check out line as the cashier had to scan and count each one. We had several questions and a few curious looks as we hauled our blankets out of the store.
If you ever wondered what 100 blankets all piled up looks like, now you know. I was shocked at how much space they take up. We're planning on using space saver bags to shrink them down as much as possible so we're able to get them all over to Ethiopia.
I think we're going to need a baggage miracle over here. It's a GREAT "problem" to have don't you think? We have so many donations, we don' t know what to do :-)
