I’ve always had a heart for orphans.
There is just something about knowing there are helpless children out in the world, with no parents and no home. I could never image being an orphan. My parents have done so much for me. They’ve taught me, raised me, provided for me, and more importantly, developed me into who I am. I owe everything to them.
As I’ve grown, I have discovered I have a heart to give, but with my financial position, I can’t always do that…at least if we’re talking about money. Although I don’t have much, I do have the power to help, physically and emotionally.
When I was asked if I’d like to be apart of helping Door of Hope Palawan, I readily agreed! I knew this was something I could do and the blessings it would give those children…how could I say “no?”
My mission for Door of Hope Palawan is to help meet all the needs of every single child who calls Door of Hope their home!
Blogging for Orphans is a group of bloggers, who are uniting together online to make a difference in the lives of children… orphaned children. Door of Hope Palawan is the orphanage for this campaign and we would love to introduce you to some of the sweet children who call this place home.
Blogging for Orphans has set out to accomplish 2 goals in this campaign for Door of Hope and we need your help to do it!
52 Filled Bags for Christmas in July The Christmas in July program is an exciting activity where anyone can fill a 2-gallon sized plastic bag for one child’s Christmas present. There are 52 children to bless (24 for boys and 28 for girls), at the Door of Hope Palawan, this year. It is the goal of Blogging for Orphans to help fill all these bags, so each child can have something to call their own on Christmas. This program is started in July, because the bags are first sent to a church in upstate New York, and then shipped out on the cheapest transportation, a ship, which takes a full 3 months to arrive at the final destination…Palawan. Will you help make Christmas special for a child?
Here are two ways you can help meet this need:
- Fill Your Own Bag for An Orphan – Once you have registered for blessing a child’s Christmas, print Door of Hope Christmas in July Shopping List, shop and fill a 2-gallon plastic bag or use 2 – 1 gallon plastic bags for each orphan you registered for and ship it to New York. (Address will be provided once you have registered)
- Let Us Fill Your Bag for You – If you have limited time and want to avoid shipping, while providing a Christmas bag to a child, you can donate $25 and the bag will be filled for you. You need to register to let us know the gender and age of the child you want to bless this upcoming Christmas. After you have registered for a child, please donate on the Door of Hope website for this need, which is below the registration form.
Please register and donate by July 15th and have all bags shipped to New York no later than the 18th of July.
52 Children Sponsored for a Year Did you know it costs $300 to provide one child, at Door of Hope, with food and education for a whole year? That’s $25 a month! Blogging for Orphans’ desire is to strive to meet this need for sponsors for these orphans, but we need your help!
Here are three ways that you can help us make a difference in these orphaned children’s lives:
- Raise $300 to Sponsor a Child for a Year – As a family, you can work together to raise $300 to sponsor a child for a full year, in your family’s name. We have created a promotional form that can be emailed or printed that will help you share with family, friends, church members and neighbors about this life-changing campaign for Door of Hope Palawan. Every donation helps and nothing is too small to make a difference! You may want to have a yard sale, bake sale, lemonade stand or talent show that can help you raise the money to sponsor a child for a year. With a donation of $100, a child’s expenses are covered for 4 months and $200 covers these expenses for 8 months, while the $300 covers their expenses for a full year!
- Sponsor a Child for $25 a Month – That is all it cost a month to feed and educate one child in the care of Door of Hope Palawan, which is less than $1 a day. Our goal for Blogging for Orphans is to see all 52 of the children, who call Door of Hope their home, to be sponsored by the end of this campaign. Won’t you make a difference in an orphaned child’s life and sponsor one now? To do so, please donate on the Door of Hope website with the $25 a month option.
- Donate $25 in Teachers of Good Things Name – Each of the bloggers involved with Blogging for Orphans would love to help by sponsoring a child’s expenses for a year. With 12 of my readers donating $25, the readers of Teachers of Good Things will have the joy of sponsoring an orphaned child.
