Coats & Christmas 4 Kids - We Did It!
This sweet little man is Will from Pingdingshan. His coat, seen here, is our 'first coat of Christmas!' We are SO very happy to announce that as of this morning, we have met our goal for the Coats & Christmas 4 Kids Campaign, which means that the 385 children in a GHC program will all have a new coat and a Christmas party this winter. If you notice- the number is higher than our original goal, because we found out just this week, as our staff is in Henan province, that we are now able to partner with Sanmenxia to expand the number of children they are able to place into foster care. As a result, we now have five more kids in our program!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who have donated and helped us spread the word about this project. We are so happy that our kids will be warm and have a bit of extra love this Christmas. Be on the lookout for photos as the coats and parties begin to happen!
