Give It Forward: Our May Recipient

I am pleased to announce that our Give It Forward payment for May went to The Small Things.  There is such great work going on in the lives of children through this organization, and I honestly couldn't think of better hands to place this money into.

Thank you all so much for being a part of what we are doing through Give It Forward.  What you are giving is helping us get Elvie home and also giving us the joy of making our payment to an amazing organization each month instead of to a bank.  This is truly a great pleasure.

Just a note:  because of the way we are required to make the portion of the payment that is matched, we are unable to include it in the receipt we display here.  So while the donation amount in total is $240, we are only able to display a receipt for $200 at this time.  We want to be accountable to you as our donors and readers, and I appreciate your patience while I try to figure out a way to notify you of our recipient in a timely manner and also show both the principal payment and the matched interest portion of the payment.

  1. Thank you so much for your generosity and your fantastic idea with the give it forward loan! I'm also so grateful for the guidance you have been willing to share on the topic of toddler adoption. This money will be going towards Project Education - getting four incredible kids (Abdulli, Andrea, David, and Pendo) sponsored to go to high quality local boarding schools next year, rather than being reshuffled to another orphanage and enduring the completely inadequate government schooling. We are still looking for long term sponsors for some of our little guys - it costs as little as $19 per month - so please come check it out, and click on the "Education" tab. Thank you again, Mary!
