Kids Helping Kids: Marabella’s Annual Fundraiser

For 11-year-old Marabella, the best Christmas gift is not something for herself, but for those orphans still living in orphanages who are without the loving care her adoptive mom and dad have constantly showered upon her.  How she helps? An Art Exhibition her parents and sibling have been organizing every December for the last five years.  Marabella and her sisters are passionate about art and they create beautiful art throughout the year for this meaningful annual event.  Every year, Marabella selects CCAI as her charity to receive all the money she raises through the art exhibition!

With the help of CCAI’s Children Charity Fund, 100% of Marabella’s donations go directly toward purchasing much needed supplies for orphanage children in China.  Thank you, Marabella, for your passionate and beautiful investment in making a difference and changing lives!

Christmas Greetings from Our LOCC’s!

Happy holidays from our LOCC staff and the amazing kiddos we work with every day! May your season be bright and merry and your hearts be warmed in the company of loved ones, near and far.

NEWS UPDATE: CCCWA Announcement 12.7.2017

Dear CCAI Families,

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!

Thank you!
