February Family Donation

For the month of February, we were able to send a donation of $40 to Annabelle's Wish . I feel an affinity to this organization because it was started by a family following the adoption of their daughter. I think about the children left behind in China everyday. So many of them will not have a chance for a family of their own. I am constantly looking for ways to help eliminate the suffering of children who are hungry or cold, or who need medical care.

Annabelle's Wish has several different programs and a variety of opportunities for offering care to the children in China. You can sponsor a child in foster care. For just $25 a month, a child will be given housing, clothing, education and medical care.

Other specific ways you can help are to sponsor a baby for cleft lip repair surgery. There are educational sponsorships for orphan children who can have a chance at a future if they learn a skill or trade before leaving the orphanage.

The newest program at Annabelle's Wish is providing clean drinking water for the orphanage. For only $10, a child can have clean water to drink for an entire year!

Let this be my challenge to you! If you are reading this post and feel your heart is heavy when you think of the children waiting in China, please go right now and donate $10 for clean drinking water! I can't think of anything more amazing that can be done for $10!

Of course this is a 501c3 organization and your donation is tax deductible.

I hope you will visit the website, take a look around, and find a way you think you can help.

And please, if you donate $10 for clean water, or anything else....leave me a
COMMENT and let me know!!!! I'd love to hear from you.

    I will be praying about this need. We, too, are saving every dime for our adoption, but we've continued to donate to specific needs throughout our journey. Thank you for sharing about Annabelle's Wish!
