Christmas for Children of Sunrise 3

This Summer 32 Computershare riders and I cycled Cambodia. The 280 mile ride iteslf was secondary to our primary mission of raising much needed funds for Children's Sunrise Villages (CSV).  CSV3 is dedicated to loving and caring for orphaned children living with HIV.  No one could have prepared the riders for what we would feel during our visit to CSV3, and upon return to our homes in North America.

Upon arrival at CSV3 we were greeted by the children we came to support. We danced with, played with, sang with, ate with, and most importantly,  fell in love with these children. Each one of the 33 riders has a story of the little girl or the little boy that stole their heart. Many of us left a part of ourselves in Cambodia with our children.  We promised the children we would NOT forget them after we returned home.

At last count CSV3 had 72 children under their care. In communicating with the Tucker family (Directors of CSV3) I learned that John dresses as Santa and presents each child with a small gift. I would like to ensure that each child gets a gift from US to let them know we may be gone, but we will never forget them.  Logistically sending gifts would be a nightmare, therfore I am asking for a cash contribution to this cause.

If you want to make a difference to one of these children during Christmas please consider dontaing to this cause. I will provide updates and pictures as often and as soon as possible.

Thanks,
Joe
