THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends,

Every year around this time people ask me what I want for Christmas and/or my birthday. Well this year instead of Christmas/Birthday presents I would like to sponsor one Chinese orphan for a whole year. As some of you know, this past summer I had the opportunity to spend time at the Half the Sky China Care Home in Beijing China. I spent 2 amazing weeks caring for Chinese orphans with special needs who were in Beijing receiving medical care. Words cannot explain how much it meant for me, as an adoptee, to care for these children and see how much they were loved and cared for by the Half the Sky China Care Home caretakers. I hope through this fundraiser I can continue to give back to the children in China by providing one orphan with the nurturing love of a caretaker.

*****UPDATE LESS THAN 48 hr & GOAL REACHED*******

All I can say is thank you. I am thrilled that through my Christmas/Birthday fundraiser, I am able to provide one orphan with the nurturing love of a caretaker. Because everyone has been so generous and responsive to my fundraising goal, I am proposing a new goal. Instead of just sponsoring one orphan, I would like to be able to sponsor two.

I hope you join me in my quest to provide two orphans with the nurturing love of a caretaker. 

HALF THE SKY FOUNDATION wrote -

Half the Sky was created in order to enrich the lives of orphaned children in China. We provide model programs and caregiver training designed to offer loving, family-like care to children of all ages and abilities. It is our goal to ensure that every orphaned child has a caring adult in her life and a chance at a bright future.

We've come a long way toward this goal in the last 15 years but we still have a long way to go. We're dedicating this Crowdrise campaign to continuing the legacy of Half the Sky's work at the 51 institutions throughout China where we have established children's programs.

Join us to ensure that the children at each and every one of these centers continues to know the love of family. Help us give them a second chance at childhood.
