World, meet Sue Crews, our fabulous ( and tremendously effective!) new Executive Director. Sue, meet the world!
Sue has graciously stepped up and agreed to help us with the Children of the Peak Sanctuary Project and has already raised over 15,000,000 (yes...that is MILLION!) tugrugs for the project! Wow!!
For those of you who don't know, The Children of the Peak Sanctuary is our current project in Mongolia. We are in the process of building a refuge for the children whose families make a living scavenging at the dump while the children are left home alone, often with no food or fuel, caring for an infant sibling. Once the refuge is complete we will be helping 40 or so impoverished children stay safe during the day.
Sue will be spearheading the fundraising effort for the project and helping us to raise $70,000.00 to cover the building costs and the first year's operating expenses. She will also be sharing her generous heart with these kids.
And they will be sharing their spirit with us all!
So, now the real work begins. This little one has 1,000 tugrugs...now we only need about 100,000,000 more to help feed and care for these kids! If you'd like to help, please feel free to donate using the paypal button at the top of this blog. Just so you know, 100% of your donation will go directly to the kids, we don't take any salaries or expenses for ourselves. And, as an added bonus, if you live in Canada, your donation will be tax deductible!! If you live in Mongolia please contact Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com and we'd be happy to tell you how you too can get that truly wonderful feeling of having really made a difference in the world by helping kids!
Sue's mission to raise money for this project will provide one good meal a day for these poorest of poor children....
...and provide a warm, safe and welcoming place for babies and children ( and sometimes grandmas) to grow up, play and learn in. Seems like a pretty worthwhile mission to me!
Thanks Sue, for sharing your time and passion for helping with us...I am very much looking forward to working with you and getting this project up and running....
As for the rest of you...you might as well just pull out your wallet when she comes around. I mean, seriously, who could say no to that smile?
