Pam & Lauren take Project HOPE to Thailand

In April 2019 Pam met Lola in Chaing Mai Thailand. Here is a 2.5 minute video of their wonderful adventure. They went to Nikki's Place (an orphanage), checked 60 girls and treated 40!. We also had 2 days and one night with ELEPHANTS! Thanks for watching!

How To Do A quick lice check or treat with just a comb

This is an 11 minute tutorial (with Thai Subtitles). My hope is that Nikki's Place can show this to staff or volunteers and maybe check (an treat) lice on an ongoing, regular basis. We had SO MUCH FUN getting to know Avis, her staff, her volunteers, and her AMAZING kids!

Please help us - donate your used combs

  • Pam & Lola will sanitize any combs and put them into "kits" for shelters, orphanages, group homes, etc. Please mail gently used lice combs to: Project HOPE 714 Adams Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA 92648. THANK YOU!!

Project HOPE - L.O.T.S. Life On The Streets

This is a wonderful program through The Crossing, an awesome 'mega church' in Costa Mesa, CA. My friend Brittany  (who cuts hair), asked if Lola and I could come and help out.  We had so much fun!                                                                                 (I apologize for the loud music - a boombox at the site, I had no control over volume!! )
