Below is a CCCWA announcement that was sent to all agencies yesterday, Thursday, December 7, regarding adoptive families’ donations to orphanages at the time of their adoption finalization in China. We have some immediate questions and are communicating with CCCWA and local governments for clarification. We have learned that this announcement has not yet been communicated consistently to every province, so we are working to confirm individually with provinces/orphanages as to when the donation/orphanage fee may still apply. At this time, we would advise families to still be prepared with the orphanage fee, as it may still apply on a case-by-case basis, and we will absolutely keep you informed as we learn more.
We believe that, overall, this announcement is good news for families, financially, although it may not be as positive for orphanages that rely on the “donation” to improve orphan care quality. We will notify families as soon as any additional information is received!
With your passionate giving, we received an incredible $29,600+ in donations from #ColoradoGivesDay alone, beating last year’s numbers by over $10,000!!!
Thank you, from the bottom of our overwhelmed hearts, for choosing CCAI as one of your charities to support. In this season of giving, we know how tight money can be. Words cannot express our gratitude for such an amazing turn out!
Please continue sharing your CCAI stories with friends and family. As the year wraps up, we hope 2017 continues to shatter records in our passionate mission to support our families and the children still waiting for their own forever families.
Colorado Gives Day has arrived! No matter where you are in the world, you can participate in Colorado Gives Day and make your donation go further.
We would be honored if you would keep CCAI in mind when making donations through Colorado Gives, today. In our 25 years of service, CCAI has strived to provide a legacy of vital and unique support for orphanages, children, and families in our adoption community and beyond. This has been possible solely due to the generosity and passion of our donors.
Colorado Gives Day is a day that gives back to all the non-profits in Colorado. Every dollar you give goes further on Colorado Gives Day. For every donation, First Bank matches 10 percent up to $1 million!
So, invite your friends, invite your family, invite that stranger you met at the grocery store…invite everyone! With a little help from our friends, thousands of children’s lives will be changed for the better, forever!
