Hoping you will make a donation, and encourage others to as well.

Sharing this giveaway an easy way to raise awareness for the staggering needs of orphans around the world. Because eyes need opening. Honestly, if someone reads this post, learns a bit more about ways to care for orphans in China, and doesn’t even make a donation, I’ll be happy. Of course, not as happy as if someone decided to drop a big honkin’ donation, but really. If eyes are opened and hearts are stirred – even just a little – by what we are doing here, who knows what God might do.

So share. Give. Pray for these kids in Maoming, across China and around the globe. As we prepare for the coming days of celebrating Christ and the the overflow of His blessings in our families and our lives, consider those who will not. Who have not.

Let’s plant some seeds, y’all. Let’s do what we can, and trust God with the rest.


Thank you in advance for being a part of loving on and caring for the children of Maoming.
