THE STORY:

As a member of the Half the Sky video production team, I help make movies that in some small way contribute to improving the lives of orphaned children in China. Everyday, from our little editing office in Berkeley CA, I get to be transported to one of our institutions on the other side of the world and be a child again.

Please donate to Half the Sky Foundation through my fundraising page. 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.

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.
