Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

A Big "Thank you" from Haiti!
A Big "Thank you" from Haiti!

As 2011 draws to a close, we can’t believe all that you’ve helped us achieve. With your support, we’ve been able to provide food, healthcare, safe housing, and enriching activities for all of the children at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage. In fact, your generosity has been so extraordinary that we’ve been able to raise our fundraising goal – again!

Since our ThanksGiving update on November 14th, 282 donors took action to ensure that the kids would have a happy holiday season. Together, those donors have given an incredible $12,483. Thank you so much!

A large portion of these donors have been Eli Lilly employees donating on Gift Cards. We’d like to extend a special thank you to Eli Lilly for their inspiring support of these kids.

As we approach Christmas, we hope you’ll encourage friends and family to follow in your footsteps by sharing this page and encouraging them to make a tax deductible donation.

One last time, we’d like to extend our sincerest thanks to you for your generosity over the past year. Merry Christmas, and we hope you have the happiest of New Years.
