In less than a month it will be time to honor the women in our lives; our mothers, our grandmothers, wives, foster mothers, and those who have been like a mother to us. Mother’s Day is May 12thand we know no amount of flowers, chocolates, plants, or lunch plans can let the mothers in our lives know how much they truly mean to us.
This year we have a great gift idea for you! Starting today, Beyond Adoption, an initiative of Tapestry, is launching a child sponsorship program for children living in Bungoma, Kenya. What better way to honor the woman in your life who has loved you and seems to have an endless love for others than to sponsor a child in her honor?
The Beyond Adoption team met these children last year, learned about their needs, and have committed to making a difference in their daily lives. Bungoma, Kenya is a district in the Western Province of Kenya (bordering Uganda) with an economy based on agriculture. Poverty, AIDS, malaria, and other diseases have caused the loss of many lives, and, therefore, many orphans. However, international adoption will not be the answer for these children, yet they are our children. We have been called to serve and care for them, and Beyond Adoption is committed to help us answer this call.
Each of the children we are requesting sponsorship for attend The Madeline School in Bungoma. This school provides them with an education and one meal a day. For many of these children, this is the only meal they receive. For $36 a month you will not only be providing for the daily needs of the child you sponsor. You will also receive a photo and information about the child you sponsor.
So, in less than five minutes you can have your Mother’s Day shopping finished! Just visit www.beyondadoption.org and click the sponsorship link. You will be taken to a page where you can choose the child you wish to sponsor. What better way to honor the mother in your life than to extend her love, nurture and care for a child in need?
