During this season of giving, our thoughts revolve around family and friends, and we feel a sense of gratitude and joy in the company of loved ones. We spend time relaxing in the comfort of our homes, and enjoy this luxury most during the holidays.
But for Some, There is NO Place Like Home
Recently Joe Klink, Director of Corporate Relations for ProVia, visited Haiti to serve at an orphanage called No Place Like Home. Here they help children who lost their families and homes as a result of the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010. As you can see in this video, the orphanage is a place of loving care and safety for the children. They receive calls almost daily asking them to take on more orphaned children, however today they’re at capacity, and it’s heartbreaking to turn down these requests.
Orphanage Expansion Underway
Upon returning home, Joe shared the news of the great need at the orphanage with the corporate leadership team at ProVia. They decided to donate funds to get an expansion project started, and are now leading fundraising efforts, and also contacting other building materials companies to collect the products needed to expand the orphanage facility so they can accept more children.
Please Consider a Year-End Donation
In this season of giving, if you’re looking for ways to support a meaningful cause, this video shows how you can make a big difference. Please join us in helping beautiful, innocent children who need a place they can call home. There are many ways you can contribute:
- Donate Building Materials and Furnishings: Manufacturers, dealers and contractors can help by providing needed materials and furnishings for the expansion project. On the No Place like Home website you’ll find a list of items that would be greatly appreciated. Please email Joe (email@example.com) to make arrangements for these donations.
- Donate Funds: Financial sponsors help maintain the operation of the orphanage and support the expansion project. 100% of the money donated (minus a small processing fee for online donations) will go directly to the orphanage. Here is the page where you can make a donation.
- Sponsor a Child: On the No Place like Home website you can view the photo gallery and stories of children at the orphanage who need our help. Here you can view the options and learn about the daily needs your sponsorship fulfills.
No Place Like Home provides a place where orphaned children can be nurtured, so they can shine brightly in the world. We hope you’ll consider helping us give the gift of a loving home in this season of giving.
