From Love Without Boundaries...

LWB needs your support. In 5 hours (3 eastern on Feb 1st) the Facebook challenge will end. LWB is a volunteer organization providing medical care, foster care, education, and nutrition to orphaned children in China. In 2006, our overhead was under 3% as we work without salaries in order to get every penny possible to the children. In 2006 we helped over 400 children have life changing surgery, had foster care programs in over a dozen cities in China, helped hundreds of children attend school, and provided nutrition to orphanages around China.Donating to LWB truly brings hope to those children who live as orphans. You can be a part of changing lives forever. Click here to donate..

Message from Amy at LWB-

My message is a bit long today but I hope you will read it to the end. We have just 5 hours left in the Giving Challenge contest on Facebook. 5 hours to try and take back the lead. And we can’t do it without you.As I type this, I am staring at the photos of 12 babies who are hurting because they were born with heart disease. Their eyes truly haunt me, first because they are orphaned and as a mother it is hard to accept that any child has to be sick without a mom or dad to comfort them….but second because I know that without surgery, the pictures I have of these children might be their last. Do you know how small a baby’s heart is? And how fragile an orphan’s life is when that tiny heart has a defect? These pictures are of children who are blue, children who are tired, children who NEED OUR HELP.

I also have on my desk the photos of children whose hearts we have healed. They stare out at me with pink cheeks and smiles, and in many…with their new adoptive families. THIS is what it is all about. Saving lives, giving a second chance, and allowing a child to find their family and know complete love.In the next 5 hours we have a chance to give the GIFT OF LIFE to 10 more children in need. The charity with the most unique $10 donors at 12 noon PST on February 1st will win $50,000.

Heart surgery in China averages just $5000 per child, so with that prize….ten children can have a second chance at life.I am not going to ask you today to find 10 more donors, or even 5 more donors to help us. I am asking you to find just ONE person in your life that hasn’t donated and to ask that person to please help you save a life. For just $10.

If all of us do this, we could have over a thousand new donors in just one day. How often do we spend $10 on things that last just a moment?$10 for two fancy coffees, $10 for a movie and popcorn, $10 for a dinner out. How about for today, for the next 24 hours, we all find $10 for something that will last a LIFETIME. $10 to save a baby’s life and allow a priceless child (who is orphaned and totally innocent) to get a second chance at finding a family to love them.

Find just one friend in the next 24 hours, and encourage them to join our cause and donate. $10 for the life of a child. Of all the money you have spent this week….this might be the most important.Thank you EVERYONE for keeping LWB in the running for the top prize. We love our supporters and give thanks everyday for the amazing generosity, compassion, and kindness you show to those who live as orphans each and every day. We truly are a family, bound together by the belief that every child born on this earth matters.Here’s the link!

Let’s do it for the kids.Amy

Hey Angel. I found your blog by way of Angela Pridgen's blog. I, too, went to UMHB...graduated in 1996. Anyway, Angie told me about your blog because my husband and I are just beginning our adoption process, and it scares me terribly because it's such an unknown. We're still trying to figure out whether to go domestic or international, but we think we're leaning more towards international. Do you have any tips for the rookies???
