Unity Challenge

In China, sadly... some parents abandon their child in the hopes that their child will get medical treatment that they cannot afford. Can you imagine a more heartbreaking decision?

Love without Boundaries has started a Unity Fund to help raise money to provide surgery for some of the children in rural China.

As part of the fund, they are sponsoring a contest and trying to raise $5,000 through a $1.00 challenge.

My sister-in-law is challenging everyone she knows to donate $1.00. Her two youngest children were adopted from China, and LWB has played an important part in all of our lives.

I can tell you that this is an organization where $1.00 can make the difference in receiving life-saving surgery. My niece received surgery in China for a heart defect through sponsors from LWB.
This is my youngest niece now!

For the price of a coffee or soda, you can...instead... pop that dollar in the mail to:

LWB 306 S. Bryant, Ste. C-145, Edmond, OK 73034

...and change two lives...yours, and the life of a child. You may never meet this child, but you will always know that there is a child out there... that through your small act of kindness was given a chance at life. I know that there isn't anything that you can buy for $1.00 that will mean so so many people.

I challenge you to send a dollar, and see if it doesn't cause a ripple effect in your heart that will change your life.
