Although we only raised enough funds for the Classroom of smiles for 3 months, this gives China Little Flower a little margin to start the classroom and to work on continuing funding. The kids are excited to begin cooking classes- here they learn to make jiaozi.
Donations made on the website to the Classroom of Smiles will be given to China Little Flower to continue their good work.
Our last 2021 partner is China Little Flower! China Little Flower has a personal connection for New Ground Charities; they cared for our daughter while she was in China, providing her with medical care and a diagnosis allowing us to adopt her. We are grateful for their hearts! In addition to caring for medically fragile orphans, they also care provide family support so families can stay together as well as education.
From China Little Flower’s Mission:
Recognizing the beauty and dignity of each and every individual person, China Little Flower works to build a culture of life by reaching out to those who are rejected, abandoned, deemed as useless, and who have no voice. Whether by direct care, support, or education, we seek to show the value of each human life and build a culture that respects, protects, loves and serves life!
New Ground Charities Community will be providing a Classroom of Smiles for the Shouzhou, Shanxi province home!
China Little Flowers has designed the Classroom of Smiles to foster the holistic development of a child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical needs. Since December 2020, a Dew Drops Classroom of Smiles has been operating in each of their current locations. It has proven to have a positive impact on all the children attending the classes. We are excited to fund the first year of the latest Classroom of Smiles by providing for a teacher, training, supplies and materials. This will give China Little Flower the ability to continue operating the classroom well into the future.
We have three ways you can break new ground with us:
- Purchase a tee, long sleeve shirt, or hoodie through Bonfire fundraising and New Ground Charities will match the benefit amount.
- Donate towards the Classroom of Smiles fundraiser on Bonfire or our website and New Ground Charities will match your donation.
- Share the Bonfire fundraiser with your friends- because on the Bonfire fundraising platform, the more shirts sold means a higher margin of each sale benefits China Little Flower.
