N = Needs

While the fundraising went very well for the past month, there were also people who asked what things we would need for M*rkus. We still have about $500 to go with the fundraising, but we want to take this time to let you know about some other needs and desires that you might be able to fill for M*rkus' visit in a few weeks.

Items Needed:
Socks Underwear -- Okay, this may be more of a gift certificate to WalMart/Target kind of an item.
Night Lights -- Because of experiences, many of these children are afraid of the dark.
MP3 Player that charges by USB -- cheap, cannot be name brand
Christian Music for MP3 Player -- age attractive beat
Shoes -- Again, this may be a gift certificate thing. WalMart?
Bicycle -- even if we can borrow one to be returned when he leaves
Bicycle Helmet -- not sure of size
28" suitcase on wheels that can be a carry-on bag

Batteries -- pack of AA and pack of AAA (These are like gold!)
Playing Cards and/or Uno
Alarm Clock
Flashlight -- To take to bed.
Velcro Wallet
Cheap Watch -- no brand names
Wildlife Story Teller (Latvian) -- http://wildlifestorytellers.com/
