That means “Merry Christmas”, and that is exactly what we are trying to give the children of Fundación Esperanza (The Hope Foundation) in Cochabamba, Boliva as they celebrate the birth of our Savior.
The Christmas celebration is a chance for us to provide the kids with new clothing, shoes, backpacks and other school supplies, treats, and of course, a few toys off of their wish list. Funds are also used to buy decorations for the homes and to show appreciation to the staff of Bolivians that spend their days caring for and loving these children.
This is the fifth year of our Feliz Navidad campaign and it is our most ambitious year yet as this fundraiser will be the principal source of Christmas funds for all the homes in the Foundation. We currently have 20 girls in the Girls’ Home, 26 boys in two Boys’ Homes, and 6 young women and 1 young man in our Life Transition program (18+ yrs old). We also have great news on our first college graduate. Liz Carlin finished her degree in Business Administration! This is a very special season and a great opportunity to make our kids feel extra loved.
This year, mySTORY with Lifesong for Orphans, will allow you to make a year-end, tax-deductible donation to give our beloved children a magical Christmas. Thanks to a generous donor, the first $1000 given will be MATCHED!
Please give generously and share this fundraiser with your network.
Thank you and God Bless.
(A note about videos and photos: In wishing to fully comply with Bolivian law regarding the prohibition of publication of images of our children, we will not have photos that show the faces of the children on this website or Facebook.)
