Last year, thanks to your generosity, Destin-based Mission Love Seeds adopted 56 local foster kids. This year, clothing and toys for the hundreds of children in the Philippines are already on their way to arrive in time for Christmas, but donations are still needed to provide a Christmas meal for children in 12 villages.

MLS also has others to provide for this year — Haiti, Bondo, Kenya, and Wellspring Performing Arts
Christian School in Niceville.
“This year, God is calling us again to help orphans who were devastated by the earthquake in Haiti,” said founder Barbi Carroll. “I have already been given a list of children, their ages and wish lists. You all helped many of these kids after the earthquake in 2010, when Earl Baumgardner, Lisa Snuggs and I traveled to Haiti to deliver relief supplies.”
Many of these kids are asking for clothes and shoes for Christmas. If you would like to help by purchasing Christmas gifts for one or more of these orphans, visit Mission Love Seeds Charity on Facebook, missionloveseeds.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 850-865-1055. A wish list will then be sent to you, or you can call and get it. Their pictures are on the Facebook page.
“The head of the orphanage, Martine M. Longchamp, is an American Airline stewardess who will be coming to Destin to pick up all the gifts and deliver them to the orphanage,” said Carroll. “No time to shop? No problem! I will shop for you.”
Please wrap gifts, put child’s name and number on each gift. Place gifts in box or bag and close. The gifts need to be received in our Destin office, 55 Country Club Drive E, no later than Friday, Dec. 5.
To adopt a child for Christmas in Bondo, Kenya, send $25 per child to 55 Country Club Drive in Destin or visit the website to donate by credit card. Pictures of the children are also on MLS Facebook page for you to choose which one you want. Notify Carroll at the contact information above.
Also this year, Mission Love Seeds has chosen to help Wellspring Christian School in Niceville. Use contact information above to find a child to help.
Helping will make you feel so good on the inside and put a smile on a child’s face … and a smile on yours, too.
