We are pleased to announce that Operation Heart-to-Heart raised $865 for the children at House of Angels and that at last they have received our hearts and sent hearts in return for each of you who participated!!! We will be sending those out to all of you in the coming days.
The children were absolutely thrilled to receive their special hearts addressed specifically to them. It gave them a sense of connection to all of you who are making a difference in their lives. One child said, "Is it all mine? Can I take it home?" The colors of the hearts even brought a momentary smile to some of the disabled childrens' faces... smiles that are unfortunately too rare.
The children that were able worked extremely hard making their hearts for you... hearts that you will be proud of. Each day they worked and made changes so that their hearts would be perfect! For those that were unable, including our new disabled children, the nurses helped... making their hearts for them in hopes that one day these precious children will be able to realize and understand that somewhere out there, across the great ocean, there is someone who cares about them.
We would like to offer our gratitude to all of you who participated. You can rest assured that you have indeed made a difference in the life of a child.
