Thanks to your generous support and hard work, we were able to donate a total of $27,034.00 to Kinship United in 2016!! WOO HOO! This amazing gift served the Cayacoa Church Home in the Dominican Republic.
The Church Home is growing quickly and they are excited about the opportunities the support is providing! Some recent updates from Cayocoa:
A new little boy, Joel, was recently brought into the home. He came from a VERY violent home. He was malnourished to the point where his hair was falling out. When the authorities found him, he was lying next to his mother, who had been murdered by his father. There's no telling the amount of abuse he has been subjected to. We are thanking GOD that he was saved and brought to the home. Thank you SO MUCH for all of your support - allowing children like him to come to a safe place. These children now have a second chance at childhood.
And there is even more great news! The combination of your support and the support of other Cayacoa donors, the Kinship Home is now the proud owner of a van! THIS IS HUGE! A vehicle to take kids to school, go out and rescue MORE kids, take kids to the hospital, mobile evangelism and the list goes on!!
They are putting a fresh coat of paint on it and putting Kinship United logo on the side. These really are blessings beyond measure and deserve another BIG WOO HOO!! Thank you for your support!
4/24 Kinship Update & Goal
We are making such an impact and difference in the lives the children in our Kinship Home. There are still many empty beds and more funding is needed to fill them. We want to fill them all! We are striving to work together to DOUBLE our sales of the Mini Organizer so that even more children can be brought into the home. They currently support 9 children and are able to accommodate up to 25 children in the home.
Here is an update from the Dominican Republic:
The kids are well and happy, going to school and attending church. Please pray with us that God would lead other suffering and hungry children to us and that we would have the financial wherewithal not to turn anyone away.
They are currently working to start an English language and a gymnastics program since some of the kids have demonstrated a gift in this area (not sure if you recall how some of the kids where showing off their ability to jump and do cartwheels when you guys were there).
Thanks for your concerns and prayers!
Ways you can support the children:
Talk about the organization! Show pictures of the children and talk about the ways our donations have helped.
Share the Charity Special at your Shows, Events and on Facebook Shows.
Have the Mini Organizer at Check-Out.
Offer the Customer Special and ask everyone that qualifies how many they would like to add to their order.
Follow-Up on Outside Orders that qualify for the special.
Thank you for partnering with us to support children in need! Your support is making a difference for these children every single day. Let’s fill the empty beds!
Kinship United rescues orphaned, abused, and neglected children in countries torn apart by tragedy and poverty. Belonging is at the core of Kinship giving everyone the opportunity to thrive. The donations enable Kinship projects to offer long term care and service.
Thanks to all of you, last year we were able to give $19,000 to our children in the home, averaging to about $1,600 a month which was used to provide:
Day to day support needs including food, schooling, medical and dental care
Fix the door and the air conditioning on the mini box
Food drives in the Batey providing food to the children and families in the village
Medical clinic in the Batey
This year our goal is to double the donation and give back $38,000. This money will help fund for dental work for kids that need a lot of work done, especially a few older ones that need braces. The funds will also go towards maintaining the home, a washing machine for the boy’s home, and a sofa, chair and tables for the house to make it feel more of a home!
We now have 12 amazing kids who belong to this wonderful community ages ranging from 4-13 who have somehow been impacted by tragedies. If you follow our corporate Facebook page, you will meet one child each month during our Featured Child campaign.
We are super excited to announce that all efforts have paid off and our urgent request to bring the girls home has been a success!
Dayelin, Darianny and Genesis are at Cayacoa Kinship in a safe and secure environment filled with lots of love, learning and positivity. Our amazing kids need so much of our help and we want to make sure that we are all pitching in and helping give back to such a wonderful community! Don’t forget that our goal is to double the donation and give back $38,000 this year. Offer the Charity Special to all your guest and help us continue to make a difference today!
Watch for an update next week on our giving to date!
