That's how much has been donated to the Trees of Glory Livestock fund so far! That puts us at about 23% of our goal. Thursday night, my mom and aunt and I (we all have sponsor kids at TOG) got together to make some of the cards. I really like the way they came out. Each card will be sent with an envelope stamped with a cow that the donor can address as they wish. Background information about Children's Hopechest and TOG are printed on the back of each card along with an explanation of the livestock project and the impact it will have for the kids at this care-point. I'm excited by the thought of how many people will be receiving Christmas gifts this year that are helping to change the lives of these kids.
While Karen and her team were in Ethiopia last month, she said that the land officials were actually at the care-point discussing the land with the in-country staff. The staff reiterated the importance of utilizing the land and the urgency of this need for livestock to graze the field.
If you are a Trees of Glory sponsor or just want to help, please consider posting this link to my original post that details how to make a donation to your blog or facebook or even via email. The more people that are aware of this need, the faster Children's Hopechest will be able to provide the resources necessary to secure the land at TOG.
Remember, $900 buys a cow and the barn can be completed for just $1100
$4290 to go !!!!
