BENEFITING: GO MAD MINISTRIES INC
This year would have been Caleb's 13th birthday year. Caleb is our middle son, and he was stillborn in May 2003. Some birthdays are milestone birthdays, and we do something a little different, and make the event a little more special. 13 is one of those milestone birthdays. Instead of our annual balloon launch, we are partnering with our friends at Go MAD (Make a Difference) in Dominican Republic. We have been getting to know the people and the work of Go MAD for a few years now, and we love them and what they do. They are in need of a medical clinic in the village of Ascension. We visited this village in 2011 and again in 2013. There is a definite need for basic necessities, health care, education, life skills training, and more. My husband, Josh, has always had a dream to build a medical clinic in honour of our Caleb, and when we discovered the need in Ascension, we knew this was just the present we wanted to give to other families for Caleb's 13th birthday. The chance of good health, full life, and most importantly the chance of hope. Consider giving in honour of a loved one in your life - whether it's a tiny baby, a child, a family member, a friend, or another person who has touched your heart in some way. Give hope - that's one thing our Caleb has taught me - even in the most challenging and confusing and trying times and places of life - there is always hope.
