The Emperor’s New Clothes

Ok, its not about THAT story.

But it is about new clothes for destitute kids in Ubaúna, Brasil.

I’d mentioned to you a few days ago that I’m heading south on Wednesday and that we’ve received a call to help a family whose kids are literally running around naked because they have absolutely nothing. I’m collecting new and washed clothing for a 4 year old girl, a 2 year old girl, 2 girls under 3 months old and a little new born boy.

How would YOU like to have that many young kids running around your house… naked! There are no disposable diapers, or regular diapers for that matter. Imagine the mess.

There is also an 11 year old girl and a 14 year old boy, but I have clothing for them (in case you are wondering, as I was, how can there be this many youngsters in one household, the grandmother, her children, her grandchildren and her great grandchildren all live under the same roof and both her children and grandchildren have had the new babies. This multitude lives in a mud shack that measures about 20×20).

If you can help, please bring the clothes by my office at 803 S. College Road, Suite D (Wellness Therapies) today or Monday, or, if you attend Lifepoint, bring them with you Sunday to either service.

I will bring back photos of the kids strutting around in the opposite of the emperor’s new clothes!
