The Warmth of Christmas Love

Winter is hard for many of our girls!
Every alternate year, we work with our sponsors
 to try to make a difference at Christmas time,
 showing love,
 offering practical warmth and bringing HOPE
 with a reminder of how many people around the world really CARE!

This year, Community Roots in Shanghai were able to raise sponsors and funding 
to supply a Gift Bag for each girl.
Guangxi Girl Sponsors/Christmas Gift Cards have raised the money necessary to have all these gifts delivered
 throughout Guangxi to all of our girls before Christmas, 
along with a Special Christmas card 
designed by one of our girls!


 Here is Santa Matthew beginning his travels in Yizhou where we help some of the most fantastic girls! 
They are truly a joy and an inspiration to meet!

Here are our very special Desheng Girls

                                                   helping out as they always love to do.....

                                           with the amazing Desheng Mountains in the background......
                                                                 (Oh, I so love to be there!!!!!!)

Sorting out the Gifts in DouAn.......

                               excitedly checking out  their gifts ( likely to be the only ones they will have)
And on to Pingguo.......

                                                  massive organistaion by the lovely Qingying

                             and happy girls reading Christmas messages from their sponsors :-)
Special times in Nanning with Dale and his family , who helped to co-ordinate all of this....

                                                         Special times with the girls!

                     sharing a Christmas message of Love and Hope with the girls at People's Park
Then off to Rongshui, Miao country
 where some of the girls have chosen to honour their guests 
by wearing their beautiful, traditional Miao costumes

Santa Matthew will end his amazing journeys on the 24th December
( still at Chongzhou)
and be back home in time to celebrate Christmas with his lovely family.
This have been a massive enterprise for all involved
and has brought great joy to our girls.
Thank you to ALL who have worked so hard to make this possible, especially our fantastic 
Guangxi Girls Staff!!!!!!!!
All who have bought and sent Hope4China Christmas Gift Cards.
( please share this link with your friends so they can see where their money has gone)
Sponsors who have donated,
and such a huge Team of people
 inspired by Matthew, 
working so hard to make this possible.

It truly does take a Village!

We end our year with our Gorgeous Guangxi Girls............
who give more than they receive........

...and look forward to our next venture for Chinese New Year to help our younger children.
Watch this space......

Happy Christmas to All
from the 
Guangxi Girls
