Celebrating is one of my favorite things! Spending time with our CCH children and getting to know them has been one of my favorite things in this life. Look at the picture to your left, Lavanya and Anitha are so excited to have ice cream! Those smiles are priceless!
When Sean and I first got here and we went to visit the children in the homes and saw that they were not sleeping on mattresses but rather hard plywood, we were very upset. Knowing that we did not know everything, we started asking questions.
Our staff, Chinna, told us that they are just happy to be off the ground so bugs can’t crawl on them and water can not get on them. This changed our perspective. And we almost immediately started fundraising for mattresses. Last year we were able to raise enough money to get mattresses for all 200 of our children. It took us 4 or 5 months to raise the funds. This year, by the grace of God and a woman with a giving heart, we got money for all the mattresses with just one email!
Now we just need bunk beds to put those mattresses on and this is where you come in!
The goal is $3,500 in 35 days for my 35th birthday!
Yesterday, Day 1, $105 came in! Thanks so much!
