So, we started this little project. I have changed the name from a "project" to
Our volunteer group, Sixteen Small Stones, is collecting Valentines to send to the orphans we help. My friend, Blake, came up with this idea, and I think it is amazing!
I can't imagine the feelings these children must have...the feeling of being all alone in this big world, the feeling, maybe, that there is no one who cares about them. What kind of hope and joy might a single note bring? What kind of comfort, to think someone out there even KNOWS about them?
We will be sending the Valentines to four different places. We will send them to all 19 girls living under Katie's roof (including Katie the young woman who helps her) in Uganda, Africa, to the children at Luckyhill Orphanage and King's School in Ghana, Africa, the Haitian orphans living at Foyer Coin Dex Cieux orphan home in Haiti, and to the children at Bethel Foster Home (home and school for blind children) in Beijing, China.
What does this all mean? It means we need approximately 800 Valentines.
Yes. EIGHT HUNDRED.
That's a lot of Valentines.
Will you PLEASE help?
