EVENT DATE: Aug 16, 2014
Each year at Korinne and Christiane's school, the classrooms choose a charity to support. This year, the 4th graders choose Orphan Relief and Rescue, an organization that was founded in 2007. The President, Rebecca Pratt and her family have invested more than 14 years in humanitarian work in both Central American and West Africa in the plight of orphans. She came as a guest speaker during Chapel this Spring and inspired our children with her stories and dedication to her work. This school year, monies were raised through cookie sales as after school treats and pizza Fridays as a lunch option. Collectively, $1000 was raised. We have decided to continue to support orphan relief and rescue as our wedding charity because we deem it an important and worthy cause!
Also, a free audio-book download is available for you too to be inspired! It can be found at: www.orphanreliefandrescue.org/content/audiobook
