BENEFITING: UNITY 4 ORPHANS
This year, to honor what would have been Carmen's 8th birthday on July 20th, we have set up a donation page for Unity4Orphans.
On July 6th, Dave, Lauren, Hope and I went with a Unity4Orphans team to an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico that has about 60 kids and is run solely by a husband and wife. Our team walked across the border, carrying food, diapers, cleaning supplies, etc. for the orphanage.
They did not have running water. While the conditions were difficult, the kids were just like all kids...adorable and happy to play with us. Beauty among brokenness.
The orphanage is in need of money for running water, food and supplies. For example, they need $800 to pay their water bill for the year. They would also love to start a baseball team for the young boys and are in need of basic equipment like gloves.
Unity4Orphans mission is: Embodying the love and gospel of Jesus Christ, Unity 4 Orphans is a San Diego-based, global non-profit organization, passionately dedicated to unifying and mobilizing global communities, towards positively transforming the lives of less-fortunate children by tending to their nutritional, housing, educational, medical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
To celebrate what would be Carmen's 8th birthday, will you consider donating to this Crowdrise campaign to support Unity4Orphans?
Every little bit helps! Thanks for your consideration.
Dave, Lana, Lauren and Hope
