On behalf of Nicholson, "Thank You" so much!

Thanks so much for helping to provide a year of food for Nicholson.

Nicholson’s dad died in the 2010 Haitian earthquake. His mom’s grief was doubled as, without their father there to help, she couldn’t afford to care for Nicholson, or his two younger brothers. So she left them at the HTDC orphanage.

Nicholson’s mom hoped the orphanage could feed Nicholson, but with so many other hungry mouths to feed, the orphanage also struggled from day to day.

Without healthy food, Nicholson was listless. He didn’t play or run around. But now - thanks to you - the orphanage staff can barely keep up with him. Nicholson just loves playing soccer!

Nicholson’s new energy comes from the three nutritious meals you’re providing every day - and thanks to you we’ll be able to keep providing the food he needs to stay healthy and keep on playing.

Nicholson has a bright future because you gave. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Nicholson. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Nicholson and all his friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage through this project’s parent page, Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for making Nicholson’s future bright, and our warmest regards!
