Education Changes a Life Forever  
Calling all sponsors 

Now begins the busy season of asking sponsors for support for their students who are going back to schools this fall. We will be reporting to you concerning the progress of your students and asking you to help them again for the coming year. 

If you would like to sponsor a student in college, we have many applying for the first time this year.  

Jielan Li 李 洁兰
Jielan Li has been accepted at Hannan University. She is working this summer to save money for college, so she had to interview online through WeChat, a Chinese social media platform. Her college entrance score is good at 503. She is from Xinzhou High School in Lingshan County, Qinzhou Prefecture and Guangxi Province.

Her father died four years ago, so her mother supports the family by farming and picking up waste to recycle. One older sister and her 14-year-old brother left school because of the heavy costs and are working in Guangdong Province. She could not convince her brother to stay in school. They can only support themselves, however. Another older

Shopping and giving can go together. 
Amazon Smile and Kroger Community Rewards 
both help us all the time.

Hello all!
There has been a change to 
Kroger Community Rewards. 
Effective immediately all participants will roll over without an August re-enrollment requirement and stay enrolled to support 
Blessing Hands each year. 
If you did not know about this, you can sign up at www.kroger.com or call 1-800-KROGERS, option 3.

Last year we received $418 from Kroger Rewards customers, who designated us as their favorite charity and associated their Kroger Reward cards with Blessing Hands in their communities. 

This works in Kentucky Krogers. In other states another local community charity can be chosen. When you shop in Kroger with your rewards card, charities receive a percentage of what you spend. 

Kroger Community Rewards makes fund-raising easy... all you have to do is associate your card with Blessing Hands and then shop at Kroger and swipe your Plus Card!

Go to "Community" on the Kroger.com site and get started giving and shopping. 
Shop and Give!
Amazon Smile
