BENEFITING: MENDING KIDS INTERNATIONAL
Mending Kids' Annual Hometown Mission mended 17 children from the United States and various areas will receive procedures by volunteer surgeons in ONE DAY!
Yep, almost 20 surgeries IN ONE DAY!
We're pretty excited to be able to make an impact in that many lives in such a short period of time. But our problem is that 3 of the surgeries are more extensive than we had expected, and thus more funding the surgeries would take.
We can not turn these children away from these life-changing surgeries just because we can't afford it....
Can you help us? We are hoping to raise the necessary funds to perform these surgeries so Elman, our local Californian boy, will not have to keep his hair long to cover the fact that his left face is different from other kids', or so Pierre, our boy from Nevada will not be teased or embarrassed in school because he has a huge lump on his ear, so Faith our girl from Kenya will have separate fingers just like everybody else, and so our other kids with similar cases will have a chance to enjoy their lives with better health and much more confidence.
Any amount that you donate to this campaign, either $5 that you might use for a drink or $500 because you're feeling selfless, will go towards the surgeries that will change their children's lives forever. And we will prove this to you.
Follow their journey while we post regular updates, show their photos of progress on social media and introduce you to them at the Transformation Celebration.
Please donate and be their super heroes!
