Mission Trip Prep – More Details

April 20, 2010

I mentioned earlier how my youth group broke into groups to plan various aspects of our forthcoming trip. We had our second breakout session yesterday, and I have a bit more detailed outline of our Library Mission project. Bob and I threw around some numbers and came up with a current projection of $1,500 to cover costs. What will this money go towards?

  • $300.00 for book laminate (this number is almost exact because I know how much the stuff costs; it will cover the books we already have and leave laminate for later.)
  • $300.00 for approx 3 cabinets (this is an estimate because we have no solid source of obtainment)
  • $500.00 for a quality Spanish encyclopedia set (this is based on the prices I saw on Amazon, though we hope to purchase this in Nicaragua)
  • $100.00 for various reference materials (dictionary, thesaurus, atlas)
  • $30-40 for The Chronicles of Narnia (Again, Amazon.)

This is a little of $1,200. We rounded up because you never know what extra expenses may occur, and then if we fall a bit short we’ll presumably be okay. If we have extra it can be given to Maria to purchase more books later, or we could get them ourselves. How will this money be raised? Through fundraisers like car washes and cookouts, and anyone who wants to contribute. (Hint, hint.)

If you don’t have money, there are things other than books that would be great to have. Some ideas for donations are puzzles, Memory games, checkers, chess, art supplies, and items similar to those found here and here.
