2. Help Us Get the Word Out Please add your name to our mailing list so that we can update you on the various projects sponsored by Lao Kids, and also any special needs that may arise from time to time. Please also make sure to visit the Lao Kids Facebook page as this is constantly updated with news and photos of the various work we are doing.
Please tell your friends, family, colleagues and associates about us and the issues facing the children of Laos. The more people we are able to make aware, the greater support we can provide. 3. "One for One plus 20,000 kip for the Children" Book Exchange The "One for One plus 20,000 kip for the Children" Book Exchange is open from 10 am to 12 noon and then 2pm to 6pm every day.

4. Bring good used adult or children's clothing to Ruth in Luang Prabang If you have any used adult or children's clothing and/or shoes - and space in your travel bags - Lao-Kids collects these items for donation to very poor villages and these are distributed at each Tuk-Tuk Library trip. Just bring them to Ruth at the Book Exchange and she will arrange for their distribution. It doesn't matter how old the items are, as long as they are in good condition.
5. Sponsor a Tuk-Tuk Library Trip If you are visiting Luang Prabang and would like to donate the cost of a complete book bag and its full complement of books, we can also arrange for you to join the Tuk-Tuk Library on a visit to a village. Please let us know well in advance so arrangements can be made. The cost of the entire book bag is US$300.
Of course, you are welcome to sponsor a complete book bag even if you aren't visiting Laos. We are determined to provide as many books as possible to rural village scxhools. 6. Knit Baby Bonnets, Tops and / or Socks If you are interested in knitting baby bonnets, tops or socks to be given to new-born babies, please see the knitting patterns in our July and December 2013 Newsletters (accessed from the Newsletters page of this web site). Note that, as there are some issues with mailing items to Laos, please contact us by email to discuss the best way to get the baby items to us.
Thank you very much for your support.
