A Few Sweeties Need Your Support This Thanksgiving!!

I have boasted before about the special hearts that sponsor our Bamboo Babies.  I am thankful for each one of them... Many have been with us as long as I can remember.. They have seen their babies born into our PRO family and they have seen them find their forevers...  We can't do what we do without the support of our PRO Family..  Thank you PRO sponsors for giving us the opportunity to make a difference!!

Today we are in need of six new sponsors..  Below are the pictures, birthdays and the locations of where our babies are that need support.

If you would like to sponsor Oscar, Ben, Sawyer, Jack or Delaney you can email me here!

The cost of sponsorship is $35 per month..  You can choose to pay monthly, quarterly, or annually.  We do ask for a minimum of a one year commitment.

"May Their Stockings OVERFLOW With Hope This Year!"....

It’s that time of year again.

There is a chill in the air and Christmas thoughts are beginning to roll around in my head. And I can’t help but think about how blessed we’ve been to Fill Their Stockings for the last two years in a row. In 2011, our first year to Fill Their Stockings, over $15,000 raised for children under the care of Half the Sky, An Orphan’s Wish and Pearl River Outreach. Last year, we raised a total of over $26,000 for those same charities.

This year, we are ready to do it all over again.

And, once again, we need your help. Because there is no way we could do this without you.

Now for some details…

WHO: Lisa, Diana and Stefanie
WHAT: Will be hosting 3 Big Giveaways – the kind that make your heart go pitter patter – just in time for Christmas giving (or keeping!)
WHEN: Starting around the beginning of December
WHY: To benefit orphans all across China

HOW: With your help!

Please consider donating something for us to give away. All donations will go directly to benefit orphans. Our hope is to positively impact the lives of these precious little ones who are still waiting in orphanages all across China. And with your help we know we can… and have a whole lot of fun in the process!

Here are some items on our wish list – things we know would generate lots of excitement (and lots of donations!) for children in China. Please know that y’all are not limited to things on this list… we’re just trying to help get this party started.

If you would like to donate an item, and we hope you will!, please complete this short form.

We will need to have the donations organized by November 22, so please complete the form before that time. We do ask that you would be willing to ship your item to the winner within one week of the giveaway’s close. In return for your generosity, your donation will be featured on all three of our blogs during the event as well as a link to your business or organization.

We’d love to hear from you! If you have any questions about a donation, feel free to contact us via email questions here – Diana, Lisa or Stefanie.

We are so excited about this, our third year to collaborate to Fill Their Stocking. Last year we raised over $26,000 collectively that went directly to care for children at Half the Sky, Pearl River Outreach and An Orphan’s Wish, all because of the generosity of this amazing community.

So, on behalf of the little ones at Pearl River Outreach, Half the Sky and An Orphan’s Wish, thank you in advance for helping us to Fill Their Stockings once again!

Stefanie, Lisa and Diana

Orphan Sunday!


Today is Orphan Sunday around the world.  It's a day to think about what we can all do for the "Least of These."  For some of us it is to give...  For others it is to go...  For some, it is both....  I do not believe God calls any of us to sit back and do nothing for a child in need.

If your heart is tugging at you, take the time to listen...  You will be so blessed if you follow where God is leading you...  (Sponsorship, foster care, safe family support, adoption, prayer, and the list goes on..)

We are always in need of sponsor families at Pearl River Outreach.  We are so thankful fo all of you that bless our babies everyday...  You are making a difference in the lives that some call the "Least of these..."

If you are interested in becoming a PRO family, please email me at Diana@pearlriveroutreach.org
