Courtney & Heather via Crowdrise
October 27, 2012
Making at difference in the lives of complete strangers has always been huge for Heather and I. We've been waiting to do something life-changing until the time was right, but have realized that no matter what, life will always be happening...so we are taking action now! Our plan is to visit an orphanage in an underdeveloped country each year where we can help out and bring donations with us to benefit the orphanage, but more importantly, to spoil the children with love!
The orphanage has said they are in need of shoes, clothes, vitamins, blankets, toothpaste, shampoo, and deodorant. In addition, we are accepting monetary donations to help us with any shipping costs and traveling expenses. If you can help with any of these things, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, Crowdrise only accepts funds for U.S. based charities right now. Monetary donations can me made through Paypal via the above email address and then we will update the Crowdrise with your generosity.
The orphanage, located in Davao City, The Philippines, was founded in 1999 by a very sweet couple, Charito and Anthony Chua, better known as Cindy and Tony. They reach out to children and reshape lives in an amazing way. We would love for you to take a minute and read through their website at http://www.lovethechildrenfoundation.org/index.html to get to know the orphanage we will be visiting and hopefully you will be donating to.
