Support for Holly Jo's Children

Dear Friends and Family,

As many of you know, this past Sunday, February 4, 2018, HollyJo O'Neil, a dear friend whose family is like family to ours, passed away suddenly and tragically after a week of life support due to cardiac arrest. She leaves behind 6 children, who were already and still are under the care of her sister and brother-in-law, Emily and Ganzo. They have literally given their entire lives to raising Holly's children, who range in ages from 1 to 11 years old. This is a truly heroic, yet difficult task,  and I admire them for taking on such a huge responsibility. As many of you know, raising children is extremely expensive! There are enormous costs associated with day care, diapers, clothes, food, you name it. I wanted to open this up to all of us to really get together and support these children. Many of us support a child in Africa, Haiti, Bolivia, etc. as an act of charity, so I figured why not support 6 children who have had a very tough go of it who are local, not just as a one time donation, but a monthly basis. If your heart is burdened for these children and Emily and Ganzo's huge responsibility in taking them on, you have the option of making a one time donation to help these children out. Otherwise, it would be amazing if a good amount of us could commit to a certain number monthly and stick with it!! Please give some thought and prayer to this situation and feel free to contact me or Carmella DeRose with any questions or concerns. Let's come together and pour out some love on these hurting children and the Usukhbayar/White family. Also, if it is not in your budget to give monetarily, I am sure they would welcome any time you could give in terms of babysitting needs!
