And She Lived…











{November 2, 2008}   Helping The Children Left Behind

I am going to start adoption awareness month off with some information on a non profit organization that does wonderful things for the children left behind in the orphanages of Kazakhstan. Stacy and Kim are the two amazing ladies who started Two Hearts For Hope. I have had the chance to meet both of them and they truly are very wonderful, caring women.

Two Hearts For Hope collects donations of items to be sent to orphanages in Kazakhstan. The children there have so little and these donations are a big help. Imagine having no toys, no clothes that fit properly, shoes so worn out that your toes are sticking out? These are the conditions these children often face. By donating just one thing you can help these children have a better life. For the month of November, Two Hearts For Hope is asking for donations of medical supplies. Some acceptable donations would be Band-Aids, gauze, medical tape, ice packs, tongue depressors, cotton balls, q-tips, Ace bandages, tweezers, stethoscopes, and blood pressure cuffs. They can not accept donations of medicatioins because the instructions would be in English and the caregivers would not be able to read the instructions and properly administer the meds.

Although Two Hearts has placed a theme for requests for each month they will happily accept any items each month.

Another wonderful thing they do is offer a raffle. Each month they offer a wonderful raffle prize and all proceeds go to help support the orphans in Kazakhstan. This month they will be raffling off a brand new, Garmin StreetPilot c330 GPS system. Tickets are $5 and all proceeds go to their continued efforts in Kazakhstan.

Please check out the Two Hearts For Hope website to learn more about this amazing organization and all they do.

Hey Kim!
I tagged you on my blog today so others can see your heart for Kazakstan (you’re my only blog friend I know that has adopted from there!)



Hmmm, this could be something my 4-H kids could do. Thanks for the suggestion.

What a wonderful post – and a reminder of those who need more than just our prayers!
