Recently a Christmas gift was given to an American Family and a Chinese family all at once. I received a sponsorship for one of our high school boys that was given as a Christmas present to an American family. What a great idea, especially so close to Christmas when it is almost too late to shop. In one act of blessing, the gift reached into a Chinese and US family. I've seen catalogs of Christmas gifts, but this one keeps on giving to both families. The student can write to both his sponsor and the family that received the gift and keep them updated on his progress in school and life.
You can see pictures of more students who need sponsors at this link. Be a blessing to one of them and give a sponsorship as a Christmas gift. It just cost $160 to pay their tuition for a year. You can also see more students at this link on our website. There is even a Google Checkout button there where you can give by credit card. Do it now before the end of the year.
Write and tell us which student you have selected, and we will update our sponsorship records.

Water Purifiers given to Village Primary Schools
Shang Mei Primary School Students Get a Fresh Drink of Water
Shang Mei Primary School no longer has to boil water to keep their kids safe. Their water purifier was installed December 6th. Looking for a end of the year giving opportunity? Maybe you want to give a water purifier to a primary school in Du'an County. I recently got photos of the new water purifier installed there. It cost $1,785. One more school never has to worry about water borne diseases again or boil water to protect their children.

Water Purifier Installation at Long Wang Primary School
I am a mother and housewife that loves China and children. The two interests
have come together in serving the children of China who need help with
educational needs. I started as a teacher in an English summer camp and got to
know the teachers first. When I toured their schools and met their precious
students, I could see many needs and decided to try to help. I first started a
fund to assist children with tuition, but it has expanded into a 501(c)(3)public
charity granting money for textbooks and school supplies for primary school and
lower middle school students and tuition for older students.
