Robin's Nest Children's Home In Jamaica.
Escape by Travel will be traveling to Jamaica for a work trip & we're stopping at Robin's Nest Children's Home on Oct. 1, 2018.
The directors of Robins Nest Children's Home are natives to MN.
Escape by Travel has done a Pack for a Purpose to other Caribbean islands & recently in South Africa. We are asking for your kindness & we are looking for donations to help these kids out. The children will be just finishing up school soon therefore they are looking for more along the ways of Christmas & the every day items.
We've reached out to them to see what they children would need. I've included their list below.
Little Boys Briefs – size 2T/3T up to size 6
Boxer shorts for big boys – size 8, 10, 12, 14, & Mens size Sm
Shorts & tops for play – boys sizes 2-14; & girls’ sizes 5-12
Girl’s size 5 sandals (any color) and flip flops (two pair each)
Diapers - size 4
Pull-ups sizes 4 & 5 - these are a very big need right now!
Swimmer diapers – size 3 & 4
Wipes, wipes, wipes!!
Medical Gloves – Latex Free size L
Body Wash – baby and regular (be sure to seal tops with packing tape and pack in zip locks!)
Shampoo - baby and regular
Deodorant – for men and women (actually for boys and girls!)

Skate boards, scooters, $$ for bicycles - we can purchase here

medium size (10”) rubber balls for the little kids
The list is long!! ANY of the above items in ANY quantity will be greatly appreciated!
You can contact Escape by Travel and we can come pick them up. If you choose to do a cash donation, that will be fine too. I'll put all donations in a card and be sure to present that to the Children's Home as well. The donation of cash will go towards bikes and bigger toys for Christmas that we can fly down to them.
We need all donation no later than Sept 20th.
Thank you! #OneLoveJamaica
The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?" But the Good Samaritan reversed the question: "If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?"
