Merry Christmas to You and Yours
I know, it's early, but with a house full of children, and a mother who loves to decorate, we've begun turning our home into a Christmas Wonder Land. Although that's wonderful and much fun, it's also a little sad thinking of the children which cannot enjoy as much as ours will. I guess it's all a matter of perspective really.
Inasmuch my heart is turned toward the children I visited, and fell in love with, two years ago. Sierra Leone is far from a Winter Wonder Land, it's sweltering heat and lots of rain. The children subsist on rice and occasional chicken. They haven't much and what they do have is shared among all that live at the orphanage. But, they sing and dance and smile the biggest smiles. They are a blessing to behold! Being with them, spending time with them, helped me better realize just how prosperous we are as a nation and how much we take for granted.
This year, rather than purchase more for our children who lack nothing, we are going to take a little extra and bless those who truly need it. Won't you join us in donating to the Children's Christmas Fund for Mama Mayila's Cradle? This isn't a large organization which has multiple churches competing to see who can raise the most funds. This is a small nonprofit that has individuals like me routing for it because I have held these children, loved on them and know them by name. I talk to them and have watched them grow. They are orphans of the Ebola Plague which unlike many in their country have a safe roof over their heads, someone to feed them and school to attend. This is all provided by people like you and me with private donations.
You can contribute to by sending funds via paypal and annotating “Christmas Fund” in the “Add a Note” section. The email to use for paypal is email@example.com or https://www.paypal.me/Hope4EbolaOrphans or by credit card: http://bit.ly/ChristmasAngelTree
What we plan to purchase with the money is something they want, something they need, something the wear and something to read. Believe it or not, all that would only cost about $20-$30 dollars US. Can you help us? Will help us? Your gift would be much appreciated.
Merry Christmas with Love
