Giving Love a Home

I met the Children of Destiny  on the anniversary of my Mom's passing, December 2014.  As I looked around at the beautiful and humble faces of the 25 children and Mama Margaret , I could hear my Mom saying to me, "You can end your search now, you have found your extended family.  You have found your place to make a difference."   

Mom was right, once again.  I have been giving love and $ to help support the education and housing needs of these amazing children.   Regardless of the tragedies these kids have experienced, their dreams for what they want to do and the difference they want to make with their lives is nothing short of inspiring 

Funding is sparse for Africa NGOs like Children of Destiny, leaving many to be on their own to raise funds to make ends meet.  Your donation will go toward the annual expenses of $23,000 --rent, food, transportation, utilities and medical care.

I ask for your hand in helping me give thanks and support to the incredible children that I have come to know and love at the Children of Destiny orphanage. Their home is modest, their dreams are vast, and their needs are simple.
