Small Project #11 launched December 16, 2006 and completed December 30, 2006:

Our goal was to give Dayana (8), and her famiy in Ecuador the gift of beds, mattresses, and furniture. Our goal was to raise $500. You can view pictures of Dayana and her family here.

See pictures of Dayana's gifts. Read her letter of thanks.

All donations made to this project were doubled, up to $250, thanks to Anne U. of Minnesota. Anne has generously offered to match the first $250 to this project for Christmas 2006. Thanks, Anne!

Lift One

In 2005 Children International launched an online fundraising tool inspired by Aura's House called SponsorThon. Since then, it has now grown and evolved into the Lift One Project.

Just $22 a month will help a child get basic medical and dental care, schooling, clothing, and more.
