Despite all of the challenges we face in light of the current situation, Happy Planet Children has seen continued support for our fundraising efforts. Our work is not done. In fact, we’re just getting started! With your support, Sister Vinh will be able to carry forward her quest to help these deserving children.
In the face of this worldwide pandemic that is impacting all of us both personally and professionally, I would like to share with you a story that warms my heart and put a smile on the faces of children in need. It is a story of hope and resilience.
To make things better you need to challenge the things that are not good enough. Please join us in helping improve the lives of the orphaned and abandoned children at The Center for Innocent Children.
We’re thrilled to announce that Seapot Lau Oc Hai San, a Vietnamese restaurant located in San Jose, California, is the first business to join “We Support Happy Planet Children”.
The Center for Innocent Children (Trường Khuyết Tật Bé Thơ) in Biên Hòa, Vietnam, was founded in 1990 by Sister Maria Daniel Vu Thi Vinh. Today, it is the home of 153 orphans, along with 58 children with disabilities.
Little is known about the circumstances that brought Vu Nguyen Thien An and his twin brother to this world. However, their daunting beginning is also a story that turns into resurgence and hope.
Annie Nguyen thinks that everything happens for a reason. She had been looking for a way to sponsor a child in Vietnam but hadn’t found the right opportunity; that is until now.
When Hannah and I discussed our fundraising goal for 2019, we originally decided to raise $5,000. We recently chose to kick it up a notch to $10,000 with the additional funds benefiting three organizations.
Together with women rescued from human trafficking, Eden Ministry creates precious jewelry that carries their story. All profits from the sale of the jewelry benefit the women that come to Eden.
Xuân Mai and the other children from the center come from many places with different backgrounds and contexts. They have unique personalities and various needs. With our continued support, Sister Maria will be able to carry forward her quest to help these deserving children.
