Remember Karen, whose fundraising efforts at her church and through Christy’s Legacy of Hope resulted in boxes upon boxes full of clothes and book and toys for Kaifeng Orphanage and Zhengzhou Orphanage? Well the total number of boxes just keeps going up and we’ve now received 18 boxes packed full of goodies for the children in Henan!
We have been shipping the boxes to the orphanages all year, but, earlier this month, our China Charity Project director, Xia, hand-delivered four more of Karen’s boxes to Kaifeng and Zhengzhou, along with all of the beautiful pillows from Hinkle Creek Elementary‘s first graders. Oh, how the children loved their new presents! We couldn’t even get them to look at the camera; they were so fascinated by their new little books! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but we’re willing to bet that these are going to make you speechless with silly smiles.
