Shipping Container Update

If you missed the last post about the shipping container that is going to Haiti this fall, you can read about it here.

For those of you who have asked about how you can help with items for the shipping container, here’s a great idea: You can shop online and have your items shipped directly to Healing Hands International.  Many websites offer free shipping on larger or heavier items (,, etc), so you can find a great deal and send things directly to the place where they will be loaded on the container.

When filling out shipping information make sure to include Roberta’s name so that Healing Hands will know what to do with your package when it shows up.
