Sponsor a New Blessing Hands Student
Subject: Sponsor a New Blessing Hands Student
New Blessing Hands Students
New High School Students Need Sponsors
Most of our high school students are in Guangxi or Guizhou Province. I just received pictures of new students. These first five students are at Anlong High School in Guizhou. They are from the Buyi minority and come from rural families. You can help them stay in school by giving their $90 tuition for a semester or $180 a year. Five Blessing Hands students there got sonsorships to college this year.
Give $90 for one semester. Give $190 for two semesters.
Pubei High School is in the Qinzhou Prefecture. We have been helping their students for eight years. Many of their students have gone to college with the help of Blessing Hands sponsors. Pick one of these students to sponsor and write to us at this link. Their tuition is $180 each year or $90 per semester.
A Chinese Webmaster to Make a Chinese Site
We hope our students will soon see our new Chinese website hosted in China.Our present website does not usually appear in China. One of our long time supporters, Wang Guoping, is volunteering her webmaster skills and one of our former students, Bamboo Feng, who works for a web hosting company in China, are working together to get us online in China. Bamboo wants to have a section of the site be a forum where our Blessing Hands students can communicate with each other and post interesting reports, art works, or photographs.
We also have the help of various volunteers to translate our present webpages and edit old newsletters to archive there. If you want to help with translation or editing older Chinese newsletters to show on that site, please let me know. It might take awhile but we will release the new URL when the site is ready.
Give us a review and see what Blessing Hands reviewers have said about us on GreatNonprofits.org
Betty Cutts, Director and Founder of Blessing Hands
We only lack three more reviews before the end of October to qualify to display a Great Nonprofit Seal. You have an opportunity to help us make even more of a difference. We would especially like to hear from people served by our programs. Won't you help us raise visibility for our work by posting a review of your experience with us? It's easy and only takes 3 minutes! Go tothis link to get started!
This is one of my favorite reviews by "roritd":
In an era when many not-for-profit foundations extract immense expenses for operation, it is a rare treat to find one as selflessly devoted as Blessing Hands aka Betty Cutts has with financial integrity, using extremely limited resources, impacted so many less fortunate lives. Many of these less fortunate have acquired an education they otherwise would never have received, and now are contributing to society. My brother and I also operate a non-for-profit in Hong Kong, and have known this organization since 2002.
Turn Your Car Into a Blessing
Did you know that you can donate your car to Blessing Hands and receive the value it sells for as a tax deduction in the USA. We have had one donor do this, and it resulted in quite a gift to Blessing Hands. It doesn't matter where your car is, we can use it for children. Recycle Blessings! Contact us at this email if you want to give us a car.
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.
