Warm Hearts Group
YEAR END Accomplishments! from The Raining Season on Vimeo.
Tonight I had the privilege of meeting with a great group of people who are part of the Warm Hearts Group. Warm Hearts Group is a non-profit organization whose mission is to:
* raise awareness about the plight of innocent, orphaned children in Sierra Leone and around the globe.
* help support local children and families in need.
* support The Raining Season (TRS) and The Covering through raising money to be used as grants for those traveling to The Covering for mission trips and/or adoption expenses.
I will be traveling on a mission trip to The Covering in May, and I am so excited! It was wonderful to meet like-minded people who are on the "orphan band wagon". A few of the gals at the meeting will be traveling in May, also. We met in order to brainstorm fundraising ideas.
There are a couple of events already on the slate and more to come. You will have LOTS of opportunity to be involved, so stay tuned! I will be helping out with each of these events and will recieve a portion of the profits, which will go toward my travel expenses. If you have any questions, PLEASE let me know! I will post the details of each event in separate posts as the details are confirmed.

If you would like to support my trip by just making a donation, instead of participating in a fundraiser, that's always an option. ANY contribution is so appreciated!
If you don't feel led to help contribute, please help spread the word! Feel free to post a link on your FaceBook, Twitter, your own blog, or anywhere you feel appropriate. Thanks SO much for your help!
