Happy New Year- Thank you

I got to talk with the children at Promise Home in Chiang Rai this morning before they all went to bed on New Year's Eve. Chatting with them reminded me of all the wonderful things that happened in 2017 and all of the wonderful people who helped make those things happen.

I looked at the children today and marveled at how they have changed over the past three or four years since we started this project. They are happy and healthy and are growing like weeds. They are getting a good education and have a stable family life. But most of all, they are loved. Loved by not only their house mom and dad and members of Charities Within Reach; they are loved by all of you who have supported us for so many years, giving generously to our fundraisers and donating just out of the goodness of your hearts.

Thank you to everyone who has donated over the past year, attended the Peace Meal dinner, welcomed Jermsak, Da and Care to the United States, followed along with Care as she spends her year in the US at school and finally, supporting the annual Thailand Sale for Charities Within Reach. Without your generous donations and support, we could not do what we do and we could not continue providing for the children in Chiang Rai.

May you all have a Happy New Year and may 2018 bless you as you have continued to bless the children and our project.

Till next time......

Much Love and God Bless,

Heather, Judy, Joan, Jim, Dana, Susan, Honey, Max, Big, Fon, Palita, Nittaya, Nom, Teerladet, Tin, Ahmorntep, Wiwat, Wareewat, Wandi, Yim, Jermsak, Da, Care and Swanya.

5 Year Anniversary and Still Going Strong!!!

Good morning~ I woke up this morning and realized that five years ago today, I began the first leg of a journey that would forever change ...
