THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am so excited to share the news with you that I have been selected to participate in a life-changing global outreach program through the Liddle Kidz Foundation (www.liddlekidz.org). It has been a life-long dream for me to do something huge and really make a difference in the lives of others; well, I have finally found it!

In January 2016, I will be traveling to the Philippines as a member of a 30-person volunteer team from the Liddle Kidz Foundation. There, we will help to set up massage and nurturing touch programs in orphanages and children’s care settings. The children in these orphanages may have food, clothing and shelter, but often they lack an essential ingredient for basic health and happiness—touch. Without it, children often feel discarded, forgotten and even untouchable, especially when their circumstances are complicated by being sick or having a disability.

Orphans have many physical needs, and because these needs are the most immediate, they are the most urgent. However, children have significant emotional needs as well. Experience has shown that orphanages find it a challenge to meet the emotional and developmental needs of children, including personalized care and attention. LKF’s goal is to provide infants and children with experiences of caring and nurturing touch that they often lack.

In addition to working directly with the children, LKF volunteers teach staff and caregivers at these facilities ways to continue to provide supportive, comforting touch to the children in their care.  Following the last outreach program to Vietnam, one orphanage reported decreasing yearly hospital visits from about 40 per year to 3 per year.  That is incredible!

I am honored to have been chosen from over 3200 applicants to participate in this mission. My hope is that you will believe in its importance and help me raise the funds I need to finance my trip. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Thank you so much for your support.

Love,

Natalie
