We ship used clothing, dental supplies and toys to poor people living in the barrios in and around Bogota, Colombia. For years we've been doing this on our own (my wife is Colombian) and having family members in Bogota distribute the articles at Christmas time. Recognizing the need to do this on a more formal basis and to distribute items year round we have started the Waves of Joy Foundation. Our purpose is to try and make a difference in the lives of people that have no other support. We plan to use students in Bogota to help us distribute packages of supplies, toys and clothes as part of their public service requirement, and to help us keep costs to a minimum. Funding is needed for shipping and shipping supplies. Thank you for our support.
