Big Big World Board Members and friends are in Vietnam on our annual trip, bringing support and love to the children of Ham Tan Children’s Center. Follow along with the visit by following us and Facebook and reading Bonnie’s blog. Here’s the entry from Sept. 15:
Each year we do a bookstore trip for all of the kids. This year, our trip was sponsored by a young man named Andy as his Bar Mitzvah project. We will be sending out an email and doing a separate blog post about his amazing story! Andy raised enough money that we were able to give the college kids a nice budget!
We took them to a new bookstore, and it was very trendy and hip. The college kids combed the shelves for about an hour and a half, looking over all of the great books and merchandise. It was a very joyful evening, lots of silly fun too while we shopped.
Big Big World’s Mission
A big big world / A big big promise
We did not adopt a child – we adopted an orphanage.
We have made a promise to 25 kids to be there for them – just like parents would.
- From undetected health challenges to medical,
dental and eye exams
- From homework struggles to higher education
- From dependency to self-sufficiency
- From frightened toddlers to confident, role models.
Help us keep that promise.
A chance for a child is a win for the world.
We would love to tell you more – we have 25 kids – they’ve got 25 stories.
