Please help

Monday, February 4, 2008


China is experiencing a severe weather crises. As many of you know, parts of China are plagued with snow and freezing temperatures like they have never encountered before. As one person described would be akin to Miami getting a Boston blizzard. They simply are not equipped to handle this weather. People do not have heat or electricity, pipes are bursting, hosptials are closed. It is a dire situation. Orphanages are running out of food and diapers. One organization I know that is helping the orphanages get heaters, supplies, diapers etc is Half the Sky. Please consider making a donation. You can click on the name above to go to the site. I cannot imagine these children who are all alone to begin with, hungry and wet and cold. It absolutely breaks my heart to imagine the children and all of the families and what they are going through. They need our help. Even if you can only give a little bit, it could mean a warm blanket to a freezing child. I know about 600-700 people are reading this site on weekdays. I hope that in some small way, we can make a difference.

P.S. My spell check on blogger is not working so I apologize in advance for any typos or errors.


  1. Thank you for publishing this. We also got a message from our agency, Gladney, asking for help. This is devastating for the people of China.

    Prayers and funds are needed!


  2. We must be on the same wavelength! I just posted the same thing on my blog :)
    I am constantly amazed at the adoption community and how we are able to rally around a cause... I just know we can help HTS get necessary supplies to these babies who need our HELP!!

  3. Thanks for doing this... I just sent my donation earlier today to the "Little Mouse!" I will now post on my blog too!!! Let's see if I can figure out the icon...


  4. Kim,

    Thank you so much for posting this. I know that the adoption community is amazing and we can do amazing things!

    Li Li and I just got back from the University and I cannot put into words what I saw! We don't know when the hats and blankets will get there, but they are on their way to Nanning.

    Ladybug hugs,

  5. Kim,
    We got our referral today she's beautiful, and I love her smile!!!!!
    We thank God for giving us this precious gift.

  6. Hi Kim,

    Lucy's SWI is not affiliated with Half the Sky, but I did find a very kind woman who is going to call the orphanage for FREE and check on them, and she also took Lucy's name and DOB to check on her as well. I will do a post when I hear something.


  7. Thanks for doing this Kim, I gave earlier today! It is a heartbreaking situation and I am praying for the People of China.

  8. This is just horrible. I made my little donation to HTS. China has been in my prayers...

  9. Thank you Kim for posting this. My heart is breaking for the people in China who are suffering so much. The thought of the little children who already must endure so much and now this.... I just don't have the words... I pray for God's mercy, grace, and provisions for these precious children. It just breaks my heart. Thank you for making a difference.
    May God bless the children.


Thank you for your kindness.
