Jewelry fundraiser brings joy to all!

Thank you so much to our wonderful volunteer fundraisers Tammy and Nicole.

Our dynamo fundraising team! Nicole and Tammy

First of all, Tammy hosted a Silpada jewelry sale last month, and donated $340 of her commission to Vulnerable Children Society. With additional piggy bank donations from the jewelry party participants ($75), Nicole and Tammy raised $415 from this initiative.

The little piggy bank that could.

Secondly, a big shout out to Nicole, who has held an ongoing bottledrive to support the work of Vulnerable Children. she has raised several hundred dollars to date, and is still going strong.

We couldn’t do this work without you! thank you so much, ladies!!!

Pictures of Faya Orphanage Kids from a Visiting Family

We are so delighted to receive pictures from families who visit Faya Orphanage. This great family sent us a bunch of pictures to share – thank you so much!! For visiting, for taking pictures, and for giving donations.

Here is Sintayehu hamming it up for the camera in the orphanage courtyard. Er – maybe he is avoiding the picture!

Of course, they is always the requisite coffee ceremony!

Some of you will recognize the oldest girl living at the orphanage. She is a sweetheart, and growing up to be quite a lovely young lady! She is giving Meseret, the director (who is also usually camer shy,) a big hug.

And, plenty of donations delivered – doantions from visitors are always welcome appreciated! What isn’t used at the orphanage is routinely distributed in the community to deserving children anf families.

Thanks so much for the pictures!!
