True Children’s Home (TCH) is an incredible American-run organization that provides care for medical special-needs orphans in China. The mission of True Children’s Home is to: save a child’s life, fund corrective surgery, provide post-surgical care, place children with foster families, and facilitate the adoption of TCH children. It is their goal that when a child leaves an orphanage and comes to TCH, they never return to the orphanage again. The most needy orphans are brought to one of their homes (Dongguan and Anji) where they are nurtured and given life-changing medical procedures. Children’s needs include: cleft lip/palate, heart defects, low birth weight, club feet, hydrocephalus, anal atresia, etc. One hundred percent of donated funds are used to help the children as all administrative expenses are underwritten by founders Alan and Twila True.
Blogs are a major resource/support for adoptive and prospective adoptive parents. Nikki, at Blogs for a Cause, is a Canadian Anthropology student who is in the process of raising money for her humanitarian aid work. Through the success of her business she was able to go to the Dominican Republic for a month in July of 2008 and is now raising money to go to Ethiopia for two weeks in February, and back to the DR for two months next May and June. Nikki stylizes blogs for $30 each. With the $30 that you pay, you will get a personalized header, a matching background, a new layout, and 1 free re-do. Of this cost, $25 goes towards funding her volunteer trips, and $5 goes to a Charity of the Month. From January 1, 2009- February 7th, 2009, TCH is Nikki’s Charity of the Month. She does beautiful work and hopes to make a difference in the lives of many children!
