Warm Winter 2012

It is cold here in Scotland!
It is getting colder in Guangxi...and for many of our girls living in poor homes, some with no proper walls, most with no proper is not an easy time.

Our Warm Winter Missions were inspired by a letter written to Matthew by one of the girls...
She cried........
...because her hands and feet were so cold and she had nothing to help heat them up.

We set out to raise funds to buy each girl a warm quilt, jacket, gloves, shoes and a hot water bottle! 
Major exercise began and like a Military Operation, Santa Matthew and his team travelled to each area of Guangxi in our Programme to deliver the "warmth"

                                                   This year we hope to do the same.

 Community Roots China have done the wonderful job of preparing the Gift Bags- a huge and wonderful operation in Shanghai!

                                        with the very cute Bags made by Home Sweet Home

We have mobilised to raise the funds to get them to the girls! 
Along with a Christmas card from each of their sponsors

                                              WHAT A TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                  Thank you SO much to everyone who has donated to help make this possible.

                                The first photos are coming in of Santa Matthew's visit to Yizhou

                                                                          and Rongshui


He will get to a very special place on December 25th!
Watch this space for more.........

                                   Thank you for helping to make this world a little bit warmer :-)
