Guatemalan Yard Sale
We've recently had several donations of adult-sized clothing. We can't use the clothes at Casa Shalom - most of the kids are pretty short and definitely skinny! So we organized all the clothes in the back of Shalom's pick-up truck today and parked it outside the home's gate. We sold each piece of clothing for 1 - 2 Quetzales (less than 25 cents). We don't have a grand total yet, but we sold hundreds of dresses, pants, shoes, and shirts - it adds up to much-needed money for the orphanage! In the midst of all the clothing chaos, the teen boys' house parents' little boy, Walter, climbed into the pick-up truck, half-buried himself in the clothes, and tried to sell the shoes right off his feet!
