On behalf of Laurencia's Victory, we wish to extend our gratitude for your generous donations and support. We exceeded our fundraising goals for the first annual L.O.V.E. 5K Run for orphans and adoptive families by raising over $9000 in excess of expenses. With these funds we have already given a $2000 grant to Life 2 Orphans to provide aid to very needy and war-displaced orphans in Ukraine, several pairs of shoes and medication to an orphanage in Cap-Hatien, Haiti, and a $200 donation to Maya's Hope to purchase special formula for orphans in the Kirov Orphanage in Ukraine. We have also provided $1000 grants to the Watson, Bjokne and Cormican families to offset costs of their adoptions. See below for some photos and messages of gratitude from these grant recipients!
We have also begun to tell the stories of these beautiful families and precious children on our website. Their stories inspire and motivate us to carry on in this way to serve orphaned and abandoned children so in need of loving homes. We are continually in the process of making decisions regarding remaining available donation funds and will continue to provide updates on how your generous donations are directly helping others.
We couldn't have done any of this without your benevolence and willingness to reach out to the little ones in need. Again, we thank you for your support in the first year of our mission and we hope to have you with us as we continue our work in 2015 helping the over 153 million orphans around the world, one beautiful child at a time.
Our hope for you is that you reap the blessings of your generosity and have a beautiful year!
