Yes. Simply choose the Madison Morrow address and it will be shipped to her.
The organization is a state agency, so I don't think it qualifies for tax deductions.

Oh no I bought a shampoo D: should I cancel?
you don't have to, but you can if you want and order one of the new ones. I can adjust the "amount needed" so it all works out. Please let me know if you do.

I just wanted to give you guys an idea of what you are doing when you help us....

When a child comes into care, they often come with nothing. We had a sibling group of three removed this week after their father shot a neighbor. They had no where else to go. The clothing they had left in the home were either covered in urine or unwearable. Often the kids have lice or other bugs on them. We do not have showers in our office so often, especially the small kids are bathed in a tub. Like a plastic storage tub. Sometimes we wash their hair for the first time in what would seem to be weeks. It can take multiple fill ups of water because of the dirt involved. They need shampoo for that, lice treatment etc. We try and give those who want one a journal that has already been provided by members of Tar Valon and a Star Wars charity group from one of our members. They also get a stuffed animal and a blanket. We get to take them shopping for clothing but only get around 80.00 in startup funds. The older kids we try and take to a church or rent a hotel room.. just for the shower.

The items you are purchasing may seem like common sense everyday things to you, but to these kids, they are amazing gifts. Often times they have lost everything they knew. And even for kids on a normal day, they miss their parents, even if they have been horribly abused. My county that my office is located in has one of the biggest population of kids. We have around 280 children in our care on any given day. There are around 1600 or more kids that my team is responsible for somewhere in the state- each with a rough story.

So thank you. Seriously. You are all heroes. I can share more stories of the good you do if thats something anyone wants to see. Some of the kids also love to draw art and make things, I would be happy to share photos also of that. I just can't share photos of the kids.

There is, we are collecting angels right now actually. If TarValon is interested, or individuals.. I could send out some angels and a contact person. To avoid any impropriety or conflicts, I stay out of the stuff with the site and work so Madison has been doing it.

Hi, everyone. I've updated the list because the deodorant was showing a shipping area error. I've double checked all the items and they are all good. I'll make sure I check back daily.
