In 2017 we launched Supply the Love! We supply the camera and film and you supply the love. We would love to have you be an ambassador of Print the Love! If you are traveling to an under-resourced community anywhere on the globe in the next year and would like to participate in spreading random photo kindness to the local people, lets chat! Together we can make a difference! Application is online.
The Supply the Love program is 100% supported by donors. If you are not travelling, you can still donate funds towards the camera and film for those who are.
As part of the program, we ask that ambassadors write a short description of their experience. All the words are their own.
Check out other self-trekking ambassadors’ experiences on our blog! Like Katie in El Salvador, Sharon in Haiti, Laura in Israel, Nathan in Puerto Rico, Allison in Kenya, Kelsey in Guatemala, Anne in Tanzania, Dan in Malawi, Krystal in Argentina, Cindy in Haiti, Lea in Cambodia and more!
Deb in Albania
A small group of us from northern Wisconsin headed out on a ‘Work and Witness’ trip to Albania. We were all a bit nervous but excited about this adventure. One mom and her daughters were going to meet a daughter’s pen pal that they had been helping to support. Aida is a Roma child and in Albania the Roma population is discriminated against. Avery met her pen pal and used the Polaroid camera to take pictures of her friends.
The second portion of the team went to Gurre, Albania to help repair a widow’s home and to develop a relationship with the congregation. The home needed a great deal of repair, but our small group of men were able to tear out the ceiling that was falling down, tear down a wall and remove two windows. They then repaired all the walls, put in new wiring, replaced her windows and put down cement for the floors. After we left the locals continued to repair her roof and replace her ceiling and to tile her floors.
There was three of us that worked with the women of the congregation and formed a close bond. They were very grateful for the work that was done on the widow’s home… they showered us with gifts of olive oil, embroidery, sweet treats, hand knit wool socks and duck eggs. We made sure that each of the women got a picture of themselves thanks to Print the Love.
