Linda Chew contacted me from Travelanthropy when I first started 200 Orphanages a few years ago. She blogged about my trip to Peru and now my travels to Rwanda. Thank you Linda!

I have been so touched by the many people I’ve met on this journey. I have met the most wonderful people on earth. It is really the best part of what I do. So many people want to help the children and help us raise funds for the orphanage projects. This touches me daily. Here are just a few of the awesome people I am privileged to know.

Angel of Mercy: Relindis Moffor is executive director and works day to day at St. Judes Medical Clinic in St. Paul.  Her  dedication to orphans in need is amazing. We’re helping her raise funds to build housing for HIV/AIDS orphans she cares for in Cameroon. When I first met her, she worked two jobs, one for her lovely family her in the states and the other to send money to provide medical care and education to HIV/AIDS babies in her care. Lori Fuchs is organizing our 2nd Annual Spring Fever Charity 5K for February 26, 2011 to help raise funds to get the project in Cameroon started.

Nibakure Children’s Village: Soon NCV will house 36 orphans and 12 care givers… Executive Director Floriane Brown is working steadily to help the children from her country have a better life. We were able to send money to  provide a security fence around Phase 1 of her project, and are now helping them raise funds for Solar power for the Village.  Attend their event, and help them start taking kids in early next year.

DAYA Home in India: I received  artwork from  Rev. Shantipriya Basiston, who cares for the orphans here. The work was created by the orphans and I plan to have them framed for sale and use the proceeds to raise funds for partner projects. They need our help, like so many others.

I am planning a Children’s Art Show and Sale where these and other pieces will be available for purchase. Stay tuned.

We can’t do it all, but we can all do something! Here’s something you can do:

You can help us organize a fund raiser before the end of the year. It doesn’t have to be huge, just a small cocktail party in your home for the holidays with friends and family… Host a Holiday Party For A Cause

Let me know if you want to participate! I will help in any way I can!
