Web searches help Angel Covers

How many times a week do you search for things on the internet? Dozens? Hundreds? Now there is a great way to do all your searches and help Angel Covers too. Angel Covers has recently registered with Good Search. With Good Search, you are able to search on anything just like you do now with Google and others. But, when you pick Angel Covers as your charity of choice, Angel Covers will get a donation of $.01 for each search you make. OK, so $.01 doesn't sound like much. But, think about how many times a week you search the internet. Pennies add up quickly. Millions of dollars are raised each year by charities around the world by asking children to save their pennies. This is no different. Millions of dollars have been donated by Good Search to Charities throughout the country.

Please go to and check it out. You can easily add a tool bar so that you never have to remember to go to the Good Search site. I added a tool bar to my screen a couple of months ago and love it! Since it's there, I remember to use Good Search every time I need to complete a search and it's not in the way at all.

Thanks for considering this easy way to help Angel Covers. It's quick to add and costs you nothing to complete searches and help children around the world.

Water is so precious!

Everyone will agree that water is vital to our health and survival. Everyday I’m so thankful I can simply turn on the faucet and watch it flow. I am constantly thinking of ways to use less to help protect the planet, but never do I truly worry about not having water when I need it. The children living at Angel Cottage aren’t so lucky. For the past several years, there has been a terrible drought in Kenya. Because it’s summer in Kenya now, the hot weather is making water harder and harder to come by. Because there is no water tank at Angel Cottage, the staff is forced to buy water from the city each week and store it in any container available. Unfortunately, so few containers are available for water storage that the children are running out after only 2 days, causing the staff to purchase water at a much higher price from neighbors or local businesses.

The solution? To purchase a large water tank for Angel Cottage, just like the one that already exists at Humble Hearts. This tank can be purchased for $2,150 and will be large enough to provide all 37 children water for at least a week. And, after the new Angel Cottage is completed, the tank can be moved to the new home and used there. Although the new Angel Cottage will have access to running water, frequently during drought this water is shut off and the tank will provide a great back up system for the children and their caregivers. Additionally, this water tank will be a source of income because excess water in the tank can be sold to neighbors in need. Please consider donating to this critical need! www.angelcovers/donation.html
