Lou Vega a thump to the brain

The response to my plea for assistance yesterday has been pretty overwhelming so far...with inquiries and donations coming in from around the U.S. and even other countries, so thank you, all of you.

I had a number of inquiries about other ways people might help and I'll address them here so as to not have a ton of e-mails, phone calls, etc. to make :)

Q1) What ages are the kids and what clothing sizes are they?

A1) My nieces and nephews that we took in are a 16 year old girl, a 14 year old girl, a 12 year old boy and a 10 year old boy. My wife and I also have a 7 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. I don't have clothing sizes for them, but I'll get them and post that info.

Q2) Can I donate in other ways besides cash payments on PayPal?

A2) Yes, thank you. A couple of inquiries have come in about sending gift cards for common stores (Target, Wal-mart, etc.), or other items directly to our house via good ol' postal mail. If you're interested in that comment on the blog or direct message me via Twitter and I'll respond with my address.

Q3) Do the kids need school supplies? Can I donate that way?

A3) The school district where they will be attending is already familiar with our case and has donated all the initial school supplies for the kids which totally rocked because I had no idea how much it was going to be for 5 kids going to school. If you'd still like to donate in that way, comment on the blog or direct message me via Twitter and I can send you my address.

I think that pretty much covers the spectrum of questions I've had so far. If you have questions, let me know. And again thanks so much for everyone's help in every way so far.
