Reaching for the STARS and a special message from Kathmandu

A team effort...
A team effort...

Dear GlobalGivers,

We are proud to share some exciting news - our Nepal program has received the 2011 STARS Impact Award for children’s protection in Asia! The coveted prize, sponsored by the UK-based STARS Foundation, recognizes organizations that achieve excellence in the provision of services to disadvantaged children and demonstrate effective management practices.

As investors in this project, our victories are your victories, so we hope you will celebrate with us.

And we have another message from Nepal - this one directly from the beneficiaries. During his recent visit to our Kathmandu center for rescued "carpet kids", our colleague Scott Welker took two photographs that, taken together, are so touching.

The first picture is a group of our kids huddled around a table working on a project. The second is the result of their team effort - two colorful handwritten papers that simply say: "Thank You." They made these for you - the individuals around the world who have been touched by their plight and made contributions to their future.

With gratitude,

Rebecca Shaloff say "thank you." say "thank you."
