We Can Make a Difference

I do a fair share of complaining and whining on this blog. I am aware of it. I'm not proud of it, and much of it is due to depression, but I still do it.

And yet there other things going on in this world that are far more important than the fact that I didn't have a car for a couple of weeks.

Like the plight of some orphans in China. I know I've posted about this before, but there is a wonderful organization The Starfish Foster Home, that does some amazing work with special needs children in China. I'll let you go over there and read about the wonderful work that they do.

Red MaryJanes is doing a fundraiser right now to help raise funds for the considerable costs of surgery for several specific children.

One of the participants of this fundraiser, Daleea, is holding an auction for one baby in particular.
Meet Ya Xing Kai

Is she not precious?
She is living in an orphanage in China. She has Spina Bifida and needs a life changing surgery.
Daleea is holding an online auction to raise the $3000-$5000 needed for Ya Xing to have her surgery.

I am unable to donate money or even bid on some of the items right now. I wish that wasn't the case.

I can't do those things, but what I can do is donate something to help her raise money.

So that's what I did.

I donated one of my 12X12 canvas wall art pieces to Daleea's auction to help her raise money for this child.

We can make a difference. One child at a time.

So go on over there and bid on some of the awesome items she has up for bid. Especially mine, O.K.? Because I really want to help raise some money for this little girl.

Thank you.

What you did was fantastic and just as valuable a part of the auction as someone who bids. There have to donators too. Not all of us are gifted with the ability to create wonderful things. Thank you for donating your time which is priceless : )
