Life 2 Orphans -Operation Christmas Cheer


Life 2 Orphans helped our girls so much!  Can you help them make Christmas a happy day for orphans throughout Ukraine?




OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHEER 2016’
Amazing the love that has been spread across the world by so many Life2orphans donors, sponsors, volunteers and other caring individuals. We have a projected $2,479.00 raised for the ‘2016 Christmas Cheer’ program of love!
You can go directly to Life2Orphans link and donate http://life2orphans.net/make-a-monetary-donation.html and/or continue to read (any amount is appreciated to reach our goal).
Please read Elaina’s Blog – http://loveboldlybetheblessing.blogspot.com/
and you can receive a Santa’s letter of your choice. You will see the listed orphanages…and the amounts needed and received already. Please contact Elaina -elaina.lawrence@yahoo.com or Megan – meganf@life2orphans.org if you wish to sponsor one or make a donation.
Please give a piece of your heart to the many needy orphans, refugees, sponsored children, graduates program and other needy war torn victims of the on-going war in Ukraine.
It’s Christmas time again this year. I am sure you are pretty busy with preparations for this coming celebration! It is a time of great excitement for our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews and we delight in giving to them and we cherish the joy and excitement they feel as they open the presents we spent so much time finding. It is a time of laughter and fun and thanksgiving and probably the greatest joy is the happiness we see in the faces of those we love and cherish, our own family members. And we are blessed!
Across the ocean in the lovely country of Ukraine there are children, many children, who don’t have parents or aunts or uncles or grandparents or friends or neighbors out shopping and planning for them. They have lived their lives as orphans, alone. Their days are full of schedules and caretakers and though the care may be adequate it still lacks the love and traditions and celebrations of a family.
Life2Ophans has, for years, been striving to make a difference in the lives of these children. Life2Oprhans has raised money for every item imaginable for orphanages in need for the past 14 years. And we have also raised money to fund a Christmas celebration for many of Ukraine’s orphanages, shelters, families of refugees (and our Graduate and Sponsor programs). Last year alone, because of the generous gifts of many, we were able to send a total of $8,500, which fully funded Christmas parties in 39 orphanages, shelters and families of refugees.
Imagine the delight in the faces of these children when they wake to their own Christmas celebration. Imagine the witness of love to these precious ones. Imagine the sweet pleasure of being the hand and heart extended to these children by your generous gift.
This year it is still very bad in Ukraine for so many. War has left many with little or nothing. Orphanages have had to welcome even more children and the number of children in each orphanage has risen and so have the costs and needs of the orphanages. It is definitely a year when these children need a little bit of laughter and celebration and a time to remember that love still remains. Your gift of any amount to help us reach $150.00 to $400.00 for each orphanage would fully fund an orphanage Christmas party. Perhaps you aren’t able to do this full amount but you could conduct a little fundraiser and raise this amount for these precious little ones. Your gift will make a HUGE difference in the lives of these children.
Please think of donating and receiving a Santa’s letter to the recipient of your choice.
Bless you all and many thanks for all the years of love you have spread throughout Ukraine!
