Game Changers

Check out this link to an organization called GameChangers. It is a cool partnership between Architects for Humanity and Nike.

With Hanna Fanta's permission, we submitted a proposal to Children's Heaven to GameChangers. If it wins, Architects for Humanity will design and build a permanent structure for Children's Heaven! Let's hope and pray the judging team sees the need for a real, useful, facility for Hanna and her girls!

While you're at it, check out this link for the Frehiwot Wondye Memorial Run. Frehiwot was a "sister" at Children's Heaven who took her own life this summer. Sixty-five of Frehiwot's "sisters" at Children's Heaven are running the 10K Great Ethiopian Run, a road race in Addis Ababa that attracts over thirty thousand runners. These girls are running in memory of Frehiwot, and as a way to raise some much-needed funds for Children's Heaven. These girls are overlooked. There is little help or hope for them in Ethiopia. Will you donate today?
