Here is an example of a box labeled correctly. Please address the box to Miracle Garden Tsunami Children's Home, using the India address, and write "Gifts for Orphans" on the box. Thank you again! Christmas packages should be mailed asap, if you want them to be received by Christmas. Smaller boxes travel faster than larger ones, so you can keep that in mind. :-)

Boxes ready to send to Miracle Garden! Thank you everyone who has sent gifts and letters to the orphans. They are each thrilled to receive mail. Numerous boxes and envelopes have been received recently. Upon Michelle's visit to MG in late November, she will see the children with all their wonderful gifts.
