Over 147 million children around the world are identified as orphans... no parents, little warmth and even less hope. Lifesong for Orphans partners with orphanages in 7 countries to provide food, education, love and hope to orphaned and vulnerable children.
As you can imagine, the loss of a beloved spouse often makes it difficult for a widow to keep up with the necessary repairs to her home. So on November 10, a team of volunteers from Ellerslie Mission Society, will work on widow's homes to help raise money for the Lifesong For Orphan's initiatives.
These volunteers are raising sponsorship for the service project. Think of fundraisers where people participate in a marathon then ask for donations. The difference with this project is instead of running, we will work on a widow's home.
The money raised during the Colorado Both Hands Project on will be used for –
1. Adoption Funding through Grants and Interest Free Loans
2. Orphan Care Projects providing education, food, housing, and facilities for orphans in Honduras, Zambia and Ukraine.
A generous donor has agreed to match the amount raised dollar for dollar!
All supplies used to work on the widows homes are donated. 100% of the money you send goes to help orphans. The matching grant will go to Lifesong and Both Hands administrative costs. The widow benefits, orphans around the world are blessed, and these nonprofits can continue to serve orphans and widows.
How can you help? It's never too late to contribute!
Please note that PayPal charges an administrative fee of 1.9% to 2.9% + $0.30 USD per transaction. The donation will be decreased by the amount of this fee. To avoid this fee, mail checks payable to:
