GIFT BOX APPEAL 2011
Over the past years we have given gifts to thousands of needy children in orphanages, schools, hospitals and at home in Eastern Europe. For most it was the first gift they had ever received, a very special unexpected present, bringing a sparkle to their eyes and unimaginable happiness.
The gift boxes include items our own children would probably not appreciate: tooth brushes and tooth paste, soap and school supplies, but to these children they are all very important items that make their lives a little easier. Needless to say the children especially enjoy the unexpected treat of sweets and toys.
However to make this appeal a success we need your participation and help so together can we surprise even more children, far less fortunate than ours with a gift this year.
THANK YOU, for your help in bringing a ray of sunshine into a needy child’s life.
