Shoes to Mexico this Christmas

Christmas in Mexico, 2009

Dear Friends and Family,

As a result of our fundraising efforts last year at this time, Give Me Shelter Ministries was able to distribute 1000 blankets in the colonia’s where we work in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Locally we raised over $6,000. and as a group we met our goal of $11,000. I can’t describe the feeling of giving a blanket to a family who has never owned one. Most of us probably own more blankets that we will ever use yet for many of these people owning one was not within their means. Thank you again to all of you who made this possible.

We will be returning to Nuevo Laredo this Christmas and our hope this year is to bring 1000 pairs of shoes.  However, we cannot do it alone. We are once again asking for help from our friends and family. The cost of purchasing shoes is $15. This will cover the cost of the shoes as well as any duty we have to pay to transport them across the border.

If you would like to help GMSM meet our goal of purchasing 1000 pairs of shoes you can do so by donating $15 or any dollar amount you would like to give. 100% of what you give will be used to purchase shoes. All checks should be made payable to Give Me Shelter Ministries (GMSM) and mailed to P.O. Box 864 Shalimar, Fl 32579. We need to place our order for the shoes by mid November so if you would like to help us, please send your donations no later than November 10, 2010. All donations are tax deductible. (UPDATE: Thanks to a deal with Payless Shoes, we have until DECEMBER 5th to receive donations for shoes. We have already raised $8,000 for this mission, so we’re over half way there!  Praise the Lord!  Please help us complete this mission… buy a pair of shoes for $15 TODAY!  Just click the PayPal “Donate Now” button and indicate you are offering shoes for this mission.  THANK YOU and God Bless!)

As always, we thank you for your continued support of our mission work in Mexico.

Yours in Christ,
