HI!! Thank you so much for visiting my personal fundraising page to support the Liddle Kidz Foundation! I am fortunate to have been chosen as 1 of 30 volunteers (out of over 3000!) going to the Philippines for the 2016 Global Outreach trip!!!! I am beyond excited... if you can't tell! :) I am a physical therapist currently working in an out-patient clinic on the outskirts of Denver, CO and this will be my first outreach program (but not my last!)
This amazing opportunity will be approx. 3 weeks, and during this time we will be visiting orphanages, clinics, and hospitals set up by the government in Manila, Cebu, and Davao City. We will be performing massage therapy to the children/infants as well as educating and teaching the support staff and caregivers in the benefits of nurturing touch. These children often lack the essential and healing power of touch, which is extremely valuable to their development and health.
The Liddle Kidz Foundation was started by Tina Allen, and it's mission includes setting up massage and nurturing touch programs in orphanages and children’s care settings across the globe. I am so honored to be a part of this group and hope that you will follow my experience in January 2016! I would be extremely gracious of any donations to help support me and the Liddle Kidz Foundation and this Global Outreach to the Philippines!! A little bit goes a long way, so please share this with everyone you know!! Thank you, thank you! Salamat!

Children, families and healthcare staff will receive a sustainable program provided by the Liddle Kidz Foundation! Professionals volunteers will travel to the Philippines to provide hands-on pediatric massage & nurturing touch for infants and children, some of which have special healthcare needs. Teach caregivers and staff to continue providing such care after we return home. This work will involve using hands-on techniques, playing games and massage stories, as well as, sharing translated curriculum and materials provided by the renowned leader in pediatric healthcare education, the Liddle Kidz Foundation.
