“When I was adopted, my parents picked me up from the hospital and I was not in an incubator… I had been born 2 months premature. They were told later, that if I had not received the proper medical care, it is likely that I would not have lived.”
43 years ago, in Hualien, Taiwan, I was given the chance at life through the gift of adoption. I had been born 2 months premature and the Mustard Seed Mission Taiwan (MSM) was there when I needed them. They saw a need in the community & put "ACTion" to help with the need.
I was surprised to learn a few years ago, that Mustard Seed Mission was still in existence & it then became a dream of mine to run a marathon in their honor. It is my hope to give back to the place that helped me get such a great start in life. I will be running the Mercedes Marathon on Feb 12 as a fundraiser to help raise the money needed to rebuild the Agape Children's Home. The current home was built in the 1950's, needs many repairs and does not currently meet government regulations. Mustard Seed is building a new facility, which will provide the children with a new home and provide many important resources to build a stronger community.
I would love for you to join my cause here on Crowdrise! You can run, or walk 26.2 miles between now and Feb 12, in your own hometown...or perhaps you'd like to pick your own distance! Walk/run by yourself or get a group of friends to join you.
1. Share your fundraising efforts with others & when you complete your miles, you can make one big donation. :)
2. You may rather just make a donation(no exercise involved). :D A donation of $10, $25, $50 (or any gift amount) is a blessing. Thank you for your support of the Agape Children's Home!
Begin your own fundraising campaign for your favorite children's charity. There are SO MANY children's charities caring for our future generations. If you already have one that is dear to your heart I would like to invite you to join me, by running/walking/donating for your favorite children's charity as well. Please share with us, on our website, the children's charities that are importanat to you! We want to share what you're doing with others also! Together we MUST ACT to care for the future of the children of the world.
Thank you for caring, thank for giving.
