More Help on The Way! Thanks to "Two Homes One Heart"

The front gate of the Dao Orphanage

I have to commend "Two Homes One Heart" for the fastest emergency fundraiser I have ever seen or heard of that was not in the form of a benifit concert or held as a function, this was all word of mouth! They wanted to raise funds for the current situation in China with the orphanages. They are a local family who is continually raising funds for the orphanage that their daughter came from and a couple of others that were on their heart. They set out to raise $1000 in 24 hours which ended lastnight at 10:00 pm by asking 100 people to donate $10 each and they almost tripled it!!!!! Congratulations guys!

Debz,

Thanks for that uplifting news. It just breaks my heart! I feel so much for the babies, the caregivers and now the new parents that just received their referrals.
