Thirty-One Fundraiser for Philip Hayden Foundation
E spent approximately 15 months living with Philip Hayden before he came home to us. We will be forever grateful for the care that they gave him and how much they prepared him to join his forever family. Philip Hayden is in the process of building a vocational center for children that are not adopted. This facility will help prepare them with life skills they will need as adults. It is my privilege to donate all proceeds from the purchases to Philip Hayden Foundation to go toward the vocational building project.
Orphans in China do not have many opportunities once they age out of the social welfare institute. Most lack education or any skills that help them in their adult lives. Philip Hayden is working to prepare the children in their care that are not adopted for a more successful future. By giving them vocational training they can teach them the much needed life skills for a brighter future.
The fundraiser for Philip Hayden vocational center will run through the month of May. You can look at the thirty-one catalog online and you can place your order here. My goal is to process orders twice through the month, one mid month and again at the end of the month. Remeber 25% of all purchases goes to Philip Hayden. Please email me if you have any questions.
While this picture doesn't have anything to do with the vocational center it shows the heart of the founders of Philip Hayden. The kids at Philip Hayden are their kids, they love them all. This picture was taken just months before E joined his forever family. Thank you to Pam and Tim for all they do for China's Orphans.

They take in children with Special Needs and Vulnerable Children and give them the love, care and medical attention they need to thrive. Please consider partnering with them and sponsoring a child.
Once upon a time there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. One day he was walking along the shore. As he looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer.He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the day. So he began to walk faster to catch up. As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn't dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and very gently throwing it into the ocean. As he got closer he called out, "Good morning! What are you doing?" The young man paused, looked up and replied,"Throwing starfish in the ocean." "I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?" "The sun is up and the tide is going out. And if I don't throw them in they'll die." "But, young man, don't you realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it. You can't possibly make a difference!" The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves and said-"It made a difference for that one."
