It takes a lot of effort from a lot of  people to raise a little bit of money these days. It’s a good thing that a little bit goes a long way when it’s multiplied by God to help an orphan. Each day we remain encouraged that so many have embraced our vision on behalf of the orphans. Thank you to those who are taking action, so the the children will know they may be orphaned, but they are not forgotten.  We can’t do it all, but we can all do something.
 

My vision early on was to put people with needs together with people of means. I hoped people would adopt projects that inspired them and they'd raise funds in some way for the project. How rewarding to see the vision becoming reality. 

A Different Kind of Love

Deitra Wynn Scott still holds the babies from Cameroon in her heart. She hosted a “Different Kind of Love” Valentines fund raiser Feb. 18 in Washington D.C. Monique Aiken, our Mobilizer in Chief (pictured below on left), was our representative at the event. Dietra and company adopted the Angel of Mercy project and because of those who support our beloved Deitra, her fund raiser is helping Phase One of Angel of Mercy Home for Children get underway. 

Sartell MN Gold’s Gym Spring Fever 5K Walk Run and Raffle

  The Frozen Chosen came out for the race on a balmy midwinter Minnesota Day. Lori Fuchs, our race coordinator ordered the warm temperatures for the day. She and her lovely children and husband were there and Rachel, her 8 year old, was at the registration desk and kept us all in line!

Runners from the midwest came out for our event, stayed for the raffle and the drawing for the IPAD. Summer Marthaler traveled  from the middle of Wisconsin because she is determined to make this year her year to get fit. So glad she chose our race! It was her first 5k. Others came for the second year in a row, some were competitive runners, some came for fun. Many promised to return next year! All had a great time helping us raise funds for the Angel of Mercy Project. 
 It was heartwarming to see all those who came to support the orphans.

Jen Bakken, our PR Associate, brought her two kids and each one helped make the day a success…even selling our bracelets to raise a few dollars! Every little bit helps! Jen is working to write the Profile for Mercy Homes in India so we can find volunteers to adopt this project.

What’s next? Helping Hands Casino Night March 17 in Scottsdale… Planning is underway.

I’ll have slide shows of photos of each event on the website. Thank you everyone for your heart and hands in the work for the orphans.
