I'm so happy that a contribution has already been made to my birthday campaign! Birthday month celebrations have begun... Having grown up wearing a school uniform all my school days from 2nd to 11th grade (minus a handful of jeans days - thrilling! - per year), giving the gift of uniforms is really special. I loved not having to choose clothes to wear to school every day. I often envy my sister-in-law, Morgan, who works for Southwest and wears a uniform to work. Recently, they've added a cute dress to their options and Mo looks so cute in hers...

At first, Paige knew which children were theirs because they were the only ones in the classes without uniforms. Uniforms because top priority after that. They want these precious kids to know Whose kids they are, to walk in dignity with no trace of an orphaned spirit. They want them to feel part of a family. Uniforms help the children feel worthy of the education they are receiving.
I am doing a campaign to raise $3,500 in the 35 days leading up to my 35th birthday to buy school supplies and uniforms for $50 per child (includes 2 uniforms, 2 shoes, 3 socks, school bag, pens and pencils). If I reach my goal of $3,500, 70 children will receive the school supplies they need to succeed!
So, if you want to celebrate my birthday with a gift, please consider making a donation to Covenant Children's Homes (a ministry of India Christian Ministries)! That will be the best gift I can imagine...
