“Sweet Medicine” project

For the past 10 years, nothing has been updated in the Pediatrics section of the Nisporeni Regional hospital. However, Love is kind, along with the city mayor – Grigore Robu, who promised to support us in this project by finding volunteers, providing premises to meet and fund-raise, etc… would like to renovate the children’s section of the hospital to improve the conditions for future kids who will be hospitalized.

With the help of the city citizens and other big-hearted people we can help kids who have to get through sickness. Please consider donating here: Sweet Medicine project.

Today, we want to mention the donation from Olsa Shoes, a workshop of high quality handmade shoes with over 30 years of experience, located in Chisinau, Moldova. The staff from Olsa Shoes learned about Love is Kind through our partner – Mara Woman and offered 10 pairs of shoes for the children who are included in our projects. We already have the list of the beneficiaries and they will receive their presents in the nearest future!

Gift of a Lifetime…update

Dear friends,

Together with CCF we managed to buy a home for the single mother (Diana) with two little children! (Gift of a Lifetime project) They moved into their new home and they are so excited about it. There is still some paperwork that needs to be done but hopefully we’ll be able to receive all the necessary documents within a month. The cost of the house was $1,990 of which we contributed $620 and HHC (CCF UK) provided with the rest, a total of $1,270.

We have also transferred the rest of the donated money from GoFundMe to CCF – a total of $612 (net amount w/out the transfer fees). These funds will be used in the purchase of a house for the grandma and her two grandkids!

In the Spirit of Christmas…

2/10/16 Update: We have great news: In January, our volunteers managed to distribute most of the donations collected during our Christmas campaign to 9 families or a total of 30 children. Thank you everyone for all your help and support! 

PS: see below for pictures and some receipts! Also, see our Facebook page for more details!

We are presenting to you today our new fundraising campaign – “In the Spirit of Christmas!” Winter holidays are fast approaching and we are all starting to feel a bit more like the child that we were one day- one full of hope, innocence and imagination! Those cherished times, when our dreams would come true and fairy tales and Santa Claus were real. So today we ask of you to remember your happiest Christmas day and then try to recreate or bring that same joy to an abandoned, abused or sick child…a child in need for our help and attention. And this is how we see our new campaign! We want to show these children that Santa Clause is real for them too. This campaign promotes our mentoring program that targets youth between ages of 18 to 23 years old that would like to give back to the community and become a mentor to a less fortunate child between ages of 6 to 18 years old. Love is Kind team would also like to raise awareness and encourage the spirit of volunteering in Moldova and we hope that you all can help us do that successfully!
Love is Kind doesn’t stop in helping children by providing with basic necessities; we want them to feel that they are a part of our family. Remember the story of Kate and Victor -(http://loveiskindcharity.com/case-2/)
Well, our plan is to do the following:
1. For one year, the organization will sponsor monthly trips for the brother and sister and for so many other kids just like them, to Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. There, our young volunteers will introduce them to the world of art through various visits to the museum, theater, opera, bookstores and so many other fun things that otherwise these children would never get to experience on their own.
2. Our young mentors will commit to this program for at least one year and they will share their knowledge, time and experience with their mentees.
3. The raised funds will help the organization to pay for the children’ transportation costs, various activities in the city and meals. The more funds we raise, the more kids will be able to join this wonderful program!
We invite you to help Santa put 12 unforgettable trips under these children’ Christmas tree. Thank you!
You can make donations here: “Spirit of Christmas campaign”.

Our first “Partner” featured….

Today we are taking a very, very short brake from our campaign to present you one of our first Love is Kind partners – Oana O’Brien.

A little about Oana:
“I’ve known since I was a child that when I grew up I wanted to help those less fortunate than myself. My first fundraising effort was a project I started my senior year of high school: I got my friends and classmates together to raise money, clothes, and food for the families of underprivileged kids with special needs in my hometown of Brasov, Romania. The need for help in that case was something that I came across unexpectedly. After that however I sought out causes that I could help with and I’ve been involved in fundraising ever since. Most recently I helped my husband fundraise for Boston Children’s Hospital as he trained for the 2015 Boston Marathon and the 2015 Marine Corps Marathon, both of which he completed like a champ.
In my day job I’m a financial analyst but my real passion lies with teaching and helping others grow. That’s why I recently became a certified leadership trainer and coach and got my own project off the ground (Oana O’Brien – Leadership Trainer & Coach). I spend some of my spare time facilitating online mastermind groups and workshops on personal growth, effective communication and leadership training. I spend the rest of my free time volunteering and fundraising with Love is Kind, a project I’ve seen go from concept to action over the last year. I started out as a sounding board for Irina’s ideas and have since helped with community development by beating the drum across social media about our mission and purpose. I continue to also fundraise alongside my husband for his next marathon, the 2016 Boston Marathon, where he will again raise money for Boston Children’s Hospital and the research and treatment of pediatric brain tumors, Moya Moya disease, and Sturge Weber syndrome.”

~ Oana O’Brien
