#GoodGivingGuide Challenge - November 13th - Dec 31st.
Blessing Hands is involved with the GoodGiving challenge that will help 100 chosen KY nonprofits raise money for their causes. The charity that raises the most in the various size categories will win $5,000 for their endowments at the Bluegrass Community Foundation. The categories count how much is donated and how many donors support what causes. Those donations can come from all over the world.
Blessing Hands is looking for friends willing to establish matching gift promotional challenges. We can raise more money if supporters will give us matching gifts from $100 on up to $500 + so we can challenge other givers to match the gift. Contact usabout being a matching donor.
Another way you can help our kids receive a $5,000 endowment prize is to become an Ambassador. You would create your own online crowdfunding page with the help of an Ambassador toolkit at this link. We especially need pages in Chinese since the GoodGiving Challenge is international. All the money you raise for Blessing Hands will go to our students or to give 24 computers to Du'an Special Education School in China.
Help us raise awareness and funds for our Blessing Hands students by saving the date and making a donation online from November 13-December 31 on our share page.

Their schooling will end with 9th grade.
Give 24 Computers to Du'an Special Education School
Our GoodGiving Goal is to raise $13,000 to give 24 computers to Du'an special education school in China. We want to give the students an opportunity to learn to communicate online where their handicap will not be noticed, and they can develop vocational skills.
These computers will serve deaf, blind, and wheelchair bound students. I even saw one dwarf and an autistic child. Since compulsory education ends at the 9th grade in China, these students only have until middle school graduation to learn occupational skills. Computer knowledge could help them get jobs someday. We must intervene in these students lives to give them a step up in opportunities.
Our share page is where you can give starting November 13th. You can also give on our Website.
Besides Braille, she could be learning to use computers.
Qin Liling is 8 years old andin the 2nd grade.
The Wuxuan County Program Adds More Children
Will it be 9 or 5 who are helped?
We were so pleased with the volunteers' dedication in the Wuxuan area, that we told them to select 5 more students for Blessing Hands to help. However, they had found 9 children they wanted to help. It will be up to your help if we take all nine or only the five.
Qin Liying and her sister Qin Qinli are orphans. Her father died August, 2015 of electrocution. Their mother suffers from mental illness. Once she even tried to strangled one child during an attack of illness. Five years ago, the mother ran away. So far she is still missing.
Qin Qinli is 9 and in the 3rd grade.
Qin Qinli, the 9 year-old stepsister of Qin Liying,hasn't been allowed to register a hukou, which would have given her a birthright to government services. She is a non-person who will live outside the protection of the law. She lives without any subsistence allowance, access to a high school degree, legal work permit, or future legal marriage. She is 9 years old but looks like a 7 year-old because of malnutrition. Both girls suffer from poverty and lack of provisions.
Liao Songliang's father died in 2014. He has become depressed and often asks where his father is. His mother is mentally ill and has returned to her mother's home, so his 80 year old grandfather takes care of him.
Caizhuan's father died in 2008 and his mother remarried. After she had a son, she was not interested in her first family of Caizhuan and his 4 sisters.
Chan Xing with volunteers. Chan Xing needs a sponsor to help him finish high school. Chan Xing's mother died when he was 10, and his father, who once was a teacher, went out to work and died of AIDS in 2015. His 90 year old grandmother and a cousin are trying to help him finish high school in 2018.
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.
