Those of you who have been following Crown of Beauty Magazine for awhile now are aware of the fact that we've been fundraising to build an orphanage for orphaned girls in India!
We've partnered with Angel House Orphan Rescue, and all of the proceeds from Beauty Boys and Ball Gowns have been going toward this project, as well as various donations and projects that our readers have been doing to fund-raise!
To those of you who have donated, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
We have an exciting update for you all! :D
The total cost to build this home for 12 girls is $17,500 and we haven't reached that financial goal yet. So, we've been praying and talking with Angel House about how to move forward. They asked if we'd like to lump our funds with a church in New York, as well as another family who was also fundraising to build a home, but came a little bit short of their goal as well.
Together, with all of the money raised from Crown of Beauty, The Martian Family, and a church family in New York = we have have enough to build a home!
That means that because of YOU GUYS there are 12 young children in India who don't have to sleep on the streets anymore! Their lives are being radically changed, and eternally altered by the building of this home! Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving so generously to this cause!
The $3,573 we have raised so far is enough to build build a fresh water well on the property, as well as go toward the building of this home!
Wow, praise the Lord! Giving these girls a fresh water well is an amazing gift that will keep on giving!
We will keep you posted on all the updates, as Angel House purchases property in India, hires local workers, and begins constructing the home. It should be opening December 2017!
It's not too late to make a donation! We will continue fundraising for a few more months, and even after we've finished, you can always donate to Angel House and contribute toward this project. Backpacks, school supplies, new clothes, shoes, and fun gifts for the children will be purchased as well...so any financial gift that you give will be sure to make an impact in these 12 little girls lives!
Did you know that there are 25 MILLION orphans in India?
Orphans who are not cared for, find themselves in a frightfully vulnerable position. They usually end up in one of 3 heartbreaking places:
~Forced child labor
~Begging for food
~Sold for sex trafficking.
25 million. The number is staggering, and to be quite honest...completely overwhelming. As Author Katie Davis (missionary to Africa) wrote, "Sometimes, trying to change the world feels like you're emptying the ocean with an eye-dropper."
We can't change this whole world all at once. But for one child, we can TOTALLY change their world.
That's right, we are building an orphanage. Who is we? You. Her. Us. Every girl who reads this magazine.
Isn't it time for us to stand up in our God-given calling as His Princesses, and rescue His royal children?!
With this project, you have the opportunity to touch the lives of 12 precious gems on the other side of the ocean, these abandoned children who desperately need our help.
Tonight, there are 12 children fighting for their lives in the streets, without parents, or even a comfy pillow to rest their little heads on.
I don't know about you, but I am not okay with that.
So, I'm going to do something about it.
And if you're on board for this adventure, then so are you! Let's change these children's lives together!
