BENEFITING: CHINA LITTLE FLOWER

EVENT DATE: Apr 24, 2012

Callie Bauer

THE STORY:

I'm donating my 20th birthday to China Little Flower.

Little Flower provides care and medical services to physically and mentally handicapped orphans in China, from newborns to teenagers.  Little Flower’s projects include special care for infants, a hospice program, long-term care for older orphans, group educational foster homes to give orphans supportive family environments and opportunities to attend school, and providing help to disabled orphans in other circumstances.  They often care for orphans with club feet, complications from premature birth or other birth defects, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, heart conditions, down syndrome, limb deformities, deafness, and visual impairment.

Over three trips, I’ve spent two months volunteering at Little Flower’s care facility in Beijing.  I've fallen more in love with Little Flower and its children on each trip.  I absolutely love all of the time that I've gotten to spend feeding, holding, and making funny faces with the babies or hanging out with the older children.  My experiences have been far too wonderful to put it all down here!

With a mission to “respect, protect, love, and serve life,” Little Flower strives to bring comfort, joy, and smiles to each minute of these children’s lives and truly celebrates of the beauty of each child’s life.  Little Flower shows what it means to cherish life, no matter how short it may be, and their children and loving, dedicated caretakers have reminded me of the value of each day and, to put it simply, to remember to live life to its fullest.   

And that’s why I’m donating my birthday to Little Flower.

So forget the presents this year, and let's raise $2,020 during the month of my 20th birthday!
