Our CCAI Charity team is off to a great start in 2017 – here’s an update on just a few of the projects we’re completing to kick the year off in China!
In YiBin, our adorable kiddos are celebrating their annual massive delivery of diapers! This delivery is funded by a wonderful donor that has given to our Charity Fund since 2006! Amazing!
Christy’s Legacy of Hope
Every year, Karen DePriest and Christy’s Legacy of Hope donates to CCAI’s Charity Fund to purchase clothes, blankets, educational toys and more for orphanages in need in the Henan province. So far this year, the kids in 4 Henan orphanages are ecstatic to receive puzzles, blocks, and shirts courtesy of Christy’s Legacy of Hope! We are so proud to partner with Karen and her amazing organization.
Christy’s Legacy of Hope was founded in memory of the late Christy DePriest Wright. You can read more about Christy’s Legacy of Hope and their inspirational story at www.christyslegacyofhope.com.
Anonymous Donor in YeXian
In YeXian province, a donor that wishes to remain anonymous made a very generous gift that allowed the orphanage there to purchase an incubator. This gift was made in honor of a loved one that passed away, and all that she asked was that it goes where there is the greatest need. YeXian sees many premature babies that are very difficult to care for, and an incubator can be life-saving in many instances. This was truly a blessing!
Through happy and very fortuitous circumstance, CCAI was connected to Kickee Pants, an organization that specializes in clothes for infants and toddlers. This organization made an incredibly generous donation to our program in the form of 4,300 items of clothing spread out to 24 different orphanages in China! Wow! On top of donating this clothing, they even provided the shipping from the U.S. to China! We were blown away by the kindness of this organization, and look forward to working with them again in the future.
Very special mention must be made to our amazing orphanage and Charity staff in China, who took the time once these packages arrived to individually inspect each piece of clothing and distribute them accordingly. We are forever grateful to have an amazing staff to partner with in our mission to serve the orphans of China.
Did you know that our Charity team can plan special birthday celebrations for the children in China? If you have a child waiting to be adopted, or are sponsoring a child, check with our Charity staff to see if we can plan a special event for your little one. It is easiest for us to do a celebration for any child that is currently in a Lily Orphan Care Center (LOCC), but we can always check with other orphanages, as well.
Our Charity team continues their diligent work every day in pursuit of serving the beautiful children of China. Annually, the CCAI Children’s Charity Fund spends over half a million dollars in service to this mission, funded by all of the amazing individuals and families that hold China’s orphans in their hearts.
