Tommy and great gifts.

Angel Covers is proud to be able to continue sponsoring Tommy, a beautiful little 4 year old boy at the Believe In Me School Jingzhou, China. Your willingness to order gift cards for education programs in China has provided sponsorships to Tommy for more than a year. Tommy continues to grow and learn. He's also playing well with others and telling others his name.

Gift cards have also made it possible for us to send significant funds with Laureen to China. She leaves Friday and will be purchasing blankets for the Huaibei orphanage because of donations from gift cards. As soon as she returns from her trip, we'll post pictures of all the warm blankets she was able to purchase.

With Mother's Day and the end of the school year coming for all of us, please remember these great gifts. Your generosity provides warmth and security for children, while providing a gift to those you care about.

Angel Cottage

Recently we received some pictures I thought everyone would enjoy seeing. Because of recent donations, construction is progressing very quickly. We are excited that less than $25,000 is needed to complete Angel Cottage, and know the children will love it once it's finished.

I especially love the doors and windows. Don't the hearts just scream "welcome!" to all the kids?! Making this home warm and inviting has been the biggest goal for this project. We want the kids to know that this is truly their home and they are loved here. This isn't just a place for them to sleep.

Enjoy the pictures and please consider coming to our event at the Madcap Theater on May 3. All proceeds will go to the completion of this much needed home.

The saddest news.

This week, Angel Covers received the saddest news possible from Humble Hearts. One of the beautiful children of this school died. Little Ruth Muhonja has had HIV since birth. Ruth also lost her hearing after contracting meningitis and malaria as an infant. Unfortunately Ruth was never able to received treatment for the HIV and she was recently hospitalized, and died this week. We are so sad that Ruth had such a short time at Humble Hearts, but so grateful that she knew her sponsor loved her. She was a bright, active little girl who deserves to be more than another AIDS statistic. She was a daughter and friend. I met her once and will never forget her beautiful smile and loving way.

We will miss you Ruth. May you know peace.
