Comfort and caring for Romanian orphans and at-risk children

Update posted by Fred Taft On Jun 24, 2016

We had a hugely successful fundraiser concert last night! Lisa Boylan gave a performance on the piano. We had 46 people attend the event and another 12 volunteers helped out. All told, we raised another $1590, which means that we've raised almost 50% of our goal of $7000! Thank you to everyone who has participated in this fundraiser! We are counting the days until we are able to return to Romania!

Thank you friends for supporting our fundraiser! We have just over a month left, and through the generous support of our friends, we have raised almost 25% of our goal! A lot of the donations have come in directly to us, and not through this fundraising site. We will also be having a benefit piano concert, where we hope to raise additional funds to help cover our trip expenses.

If you've already given, then we extend a big "THANK YOU"! If you haven't yet given, then please consider doing so. The work we've been able to do these past few years while visiting Romania is AMAZING! Building relationships with the children, and providing them with love and adult interaction, something sorely missing from their lives, makes a huge difference. We want them to know that we care enough about them to return ... and not just once ... our goal is to continue returning to Romania for as long as God gives us the strength and resource to do so!

Do you have something in your life which you're passionate about? Take a moment and think about the thing you are most passionate about ... what do you feel when you do that? Those are probably the same feelings we get when we think about the children in Romania ... it's what drives us to continue returning there. I hope that this helps you to understand why it is necessary for us to continue volunteering in Romania!
