ADDRESS TO SEND CARDS TO ORPHANAGE

Post by skftex »

Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago Vero asked for an address where she could send cards to the orphanage in Kenya that TJ worked on a couple of summers ago. I think TJ mentioned in one of the chats that it'd be really cool to do that, so I reminded TJ about it and he gave the address and gave me permission to post the address here so people can send cards if they'd like. He thinks that this is a great idea so thanks Vero for remembering and asking about it! He was very excited about it. So, he said send them to the man that runs the orphanage and he can read them to the kids.


JOHNSON NYABWOGITE

Street: Olpopong, Street No: 46, P.O Box 258, Narok 20500, Kenya


Hopefully I will be able to send one and I'm going to say something on twitter because I think it'd be cool if more people can see this and send them. :) So those of you on there maybe when I tweet the link to this you can rt it for me, and get it out there.

Here are some photos TJ gave me to share on the site from their trip to Kenya. Please do not post these other places without permission. There are also 3 on the home page that I'm not adding here. :) I hope they are getting lots of cards! Thanks everyone!

Sharon, is "Johnson Nyabwogite" the name of the person running the orphanage in Kenya? I'm just trying to decide what to write in my card and who / how to address them all.

Thanks! :D

Sherry, yes, he is the man that runs the orphanage. TJ said to send them to him and he'd read them to the kids. :)

Thanks, Sharon!

I thought I remembered you saying that, but I couldn't find mention of it and couldn't remember in which thread I'd read it so I couldn't verify for sure on my own.

Has TJ mentioned if he's heard anything from them lately, Sharon? I sent them a card before the holidays (though I admit I don't know how long it takes the post office to deliver to that region from where I live). I'm just curious if they got the letters or cards any of us have sent. I hope so! :D
