Thank you so much to everyone who came to this beautiful brunch to support our children in Ghana. Your generosity will continue to provide an egg each day to our children and their families (over 227,200 delivered so far!!), along with educational opportunities, a new family home, medicine and care. We are grateful to each of you.
Thank you to everyone who came out to make gingerbread houses this morning at Niles North High School! We are so grateful to everyone who volunteered, sold items, and shared their creativity with us. It was a beautiful morning of music by the Niles North Orchestra, laughter, fun and creativity. We are so grateful to all of you for believing in our mission and being an integral part of A Better Life for Kids. We could not do this work without you.
On this International Day of Peace we were humbled by the continued generosity of the many people who came out to golf, volunteer or sponsored a hole. Each of you play an important part of bringing hope to a child in Ghana and supporting our mission to make sure that children are treated in a way that allows them to see their worth and know that they can be successful. As many of you know we are in the midst of our biggest challenge of our eleven year history. When Shelley visited the orphanage for the first time in 2006, she never would've guessed that 17 visits later she would be trying to figure out how to best navigate a difficult political and social situation. We appreciate your continued support and faith that we will make the right decisions to make sure that the children are cared for, empowered and loved. Enjoy the pictures from today's great event and thank you again to everyone who came out today!

Thank you to everyone for believing in our mission to make sure that all children have nutritious meals, clean water, education opportunities, medical care and a safe place to live and learn and grow!

We had an incredibly successful and fun Wellness Benefit Brunch to support our orphans and children with special needs in Ghana! I'm so proud of all of the work that has been accomplished because of our compassionate donors. A special thank you to our absolutely amazing board members who generously sponsored this event. I'm so grateful for all you do!
Our biggest goal is for the children and families to know they can depend on us. That they have the security in knowing they will get continue their schooling, have an egg to eat each day, medicine when they are sick, clean water to drink and bathe in, a safer and more comfortable place to live, and the love and support from our incredible team of donors. When we take all of these piece and put them together, it represents the wellness of the whole child.
Together we've made their today better and we want them to be able to trust that we will continue to work hard for their tomorrows. Thank you for generously supporting our work in Ghana!
