The wife of the British Ambassador to Moldova, Kate Shannon, responded to CERI-USA’s GlobalGiving fundraising appeal sent to the expatriate women’s club in Chisinau, of which Mrs. Shannon is a member. The expatriate women’s club donated $500 towards CERI's winter 2010 boot drive!

Mrs. Shannon also visited a facility housing the disabled children during CERI's December 2010 shoe distribution mission and, afterwards, spoke favorably about CERI’s work in Moldova.  She promised further help to CERI office in Moldova.

CERI's dearest friends and child sponsors, Marilyn and Joe Swing, have shared their inspirational experience from visiting Moldova last month as part of CERI's volunteer teams:

"The teams over this 2-week period have now finished the distribution of over 7,200 pairs of winter socks and snow boots, so there are now many, many more warm feet on orphans around this country, thanks to the great support and many donations of people from across America and in other countries. The children are very appreciative and always excited to receive these gifts."

CERI hopes you will continue to be part of our work around the world, as we touch new lives and achieve new successes in 2011. Happy New Year!
