"Operation Happy Feet" Update

Orphanage Satnoeba, Republic of Georgia


Shoes arrived in time for the holidays at Orphanage Satnoeba!



In celebration of the New Year, 46 children living in this orphanage received warm winter shoes thanks to those of you who participated in this Operation! The children were beyond thrilled.




The Georgia Red Cross Society did a wonderful job making the day special and an unforgettable one for the children. In return, the children sang songs and performed dances. The representatives from the orphanage also expressed their gratitude underlining just how important it is to show the children that people outside the orphanage think and care about them.




THANK YOU supporters of Operation Happy Feet

for showing these children that those outside the orphanage care about them!



Now... how is that for some happy feet?!

RoG Operation Happy Feet

In 2005, when we traveled to Republic of Georgia to bring our second daughter home, we witnessed first hand what a thrill a new pair of shoes is to a child who has no home and no thing to call their own, as seen in these photos. It was both amazing and sad to see just how little it took to excite the children. So we have decided to do the same for the children in the "Orphanage Satnoeba" where our daughter might very well be living now, had she not joined our family. 
We are currently accepting donations in order to purchase new shoes for 42 children in this orphanage in Tblisi, Republic of Georgia.
If you are interested in providing a new pair of shoes for one of these children, a donation of $37 can be made here. Please be sure to mark your gift for "RoG Operation Happy Feet". You can rest assured your gift will brighten a child's day.
