Happy New Year! Help Us Make 2011 better for Needy Families.
Dear Aura’s House Friends and Supporters,
Happy 2011. We hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season and are still sticking to those New Year’s Resolutions with halo firmly over head.
Thanks to you, this site still keeps chugging along, even during the worst recession since The Great Depression. (Aren’t you tired of hearing people use that line?) Also thanks to you, over $10,000 has been raised each and every year since 2004. We know it’s “small potatoes” compared to what the big charities bring in, but every little bit makes a difference. This is money we all would have collectively spent on coffee, car air fresheners, Chinese take out; all worthy purchases, mind you… but instead the little donations of strangers have added up to buy homes for the poor, food items for the malnourished, supplies to fix leaky roofs, beds for those who otherwise would sleep on a dirt floor, water wells for a thirsty village, income generation projects for those who want to work towards a better life, and books, supplies, tuition fees, and even a classroom for hundreds of children wanting to learn and get themselves and their families out of poverty one day.
Please accept our sincere gratitude for all the ways you’ve helped needy children over the years through our site and beyond. We also have to thank our wonderful partner, Children International for all the life-changing work they do not only for Aura’s House projects, but also for hundreds of thousands of children and their families around the globe.
If you have a moment and would like to share your experiences or offer feedback so we can be even more effective in 2011, please leave a comment. While the six volunteers who run Aura’s House all have busy full time jobs, we still are committed to making Aura’s House the best site, community, and entity it can be.
Thanks as always, and best wishes for a Happy and Joyful 2011.
Kristen and the Aura’s House Team
