Fin and Mae Fund
Organized by: Tona Ottinger
We are overwhelmed and humbled with the generosity of so many who have gave towards the adoption of Fin and Mae via this fund (around $3,500)!!!
Over the last two years, our eyes have been opened to the growing need for support and medical care for children in China with Biliary Atresia who have been relinquished by their birth families because of an inablity to care for their medical needs.
Children with Biliary Atresia require an intial suregery (Kasia procedure), daily medication and vitamins, special formula, and very often a liver transplant. The cost of caring for them can be so overwhelming for the non profits and care centers that sadly many of them pass away. Out of this awareness, we decided to do as much as we can to provide support and supplies for those on the ground pouring themselves out to save the lives of these precious children!!!
One can of special formula costs around $30-$45 a can!!!!
One of the vitamins alone costs $30 a month!!!
You get the idea!!!
We decided to change this fundraising campaign to bless other waiting kids! The $10,000 goal listed is an arbitray number that we added because we had to put in a "goal" amount. We will give as much as is given. We promise that every penny given will go straight to buying supplies for a child with Biliary Atresia in China. The formula and vitamins can literally sustain their bodies and help them grow strong enough for adoption and/or a liver transplant.
Thank you so much for your consideration!!!!
