Announcing Coats and Christmas for Kids 2013!

Last year, we worked with our awesome China staff and even more awesome donors to purchase a new coat for every child in a Grace & Hope Foster Care Program.

For $15 per child, Grace & Hope for Children can purchase a coat for each child in our foster care program.  For these children, a new coat is a huge thing!  Last year, an exciting off-shoot of the Coats & Christmas for Kids Campaign is that several of our programs actually ADDED children to their foster care programs, allowing them to experience family life, as a result of this project.  Currently, we have 430 children in our foster care program, making our goal for this special project $6450. 

When you donate a coat, we will send you a printable card via email that you may use to as a memento for yourself, or to give a donation card to a family member, teacher, or friend for Christmas.  What better way to celebrate this special time of year than by ensuring that a precious child will be warm this winter?

Thinking Creatively

Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.
~Leo Buscaglia

What does this photo from a concert in Chicago have to do with a sweet four month old in Guilin?

This creative group of musicians in Chicago recently gave a benefit concert to raise funds to support a Grace & Hope for Children child in Guilin.  During the concert, about 80 attendees received the gift of some amazing, inspiring music.

And because of that, tiny Yonina received the gift of a family. 
What about you?  Do you have a creative idea that could allow you to work with others to help one of our waiting children?
