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!
