|Dear Friend, |
I had a wake up call last week when I realized we had not communicated with our partners about Christmas for the kids yet. Sorry!!! We will be blessing the children this year as usual. If you would like to include a special Christmas gift for your sponsored child, please designate as "Christmas" and get the gift in as soon as possible. Many of the 700+ children under our care do not have sponsors or do not receive anything from their sponsor. If you would like to give a general Christmas gift so we can bless all the children, that would be greatly appreciated. You can give via check or simply click here and make an online donation. Premium Level Sponsors...your Christmas gift is already included in your giving if you giving is up to date!
Great News... Last month we shared with you that a partner had made a $10,000.00 matching Gift offer to us. We have already received $7,350.00 of matching gifts towards that goal....that immediately turned into $14,700.00. I like that math!
Greater News.... A second partner has stepped up and offered to match gifts for another $10,000.00 bringing our matching gift offer up to $20,000.00. We are so thankful for the precious friends that believe in what we do and help make it happen. We have 47 children that have to be moved out of their current home by December 31st and moved onto the new properties. We are doing everything we can to make that transition as smooth as possible for them. We as "Mom and Dad" are probably fretting over this a bit more than they are. When I told them they might be sleeping in a tent on January 1st if the buildings weren't finished, they were pretty excited!
Every Means Possible... Another way to help the Ban Den Project is to purchase a Mai Thai Gift Box or Gift bag. $10.00 of every sale is being donated directly to the Ban Den Orphanage Project. These make great gifts for family, friends, business customers or even yourself! We have included a video link which highlights this project. You can purchase at www.maithaicoffee.com or give our office a call at
520-297-2235. This is truly a Gift That Gives Twice!

|The Gift that Gives Twice|
Lot's of other great things are happening, but we will hold off on reporting for now....we are currently 100% committed to see the children successfully moved onto the new properties by December 31st.
It has been said...A hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car you drove,
what kind of house you lived in, how much money you had in your bank account
or what your clothes looked like. But one hundred years from now the world
may be a little better because you were important in the life of a child.
Thank you for considering a special gift to help us get this home built for these precious children.
Charlie and Cathy
