Fundraising

Help Us Rescue More Children


We are full to capacity here at Ancla de Amor so we need to build another house to make room for more children.  We realize that many people cannot afford to make a large donation so are goal is to reach hundreds, if not thousands of people.  Then only a small donation is needed to reach our fundraising goal.

 

Would you be willing to help us spread the word?  We have written an email letter but we need many people willing to send it to their friends and family.  It’s easy to do.  You will find the email letter below.  Just "copy and paste" the letter as a new email, then insert your name at the bottom, and click "send" to people in your contact list.  With many people helping, it will not take long to get the word out and the donations in.  Of course, if you would like to make a small donation as well, then simply follow the instructions of the email letter.

 

Thank you so much for getting involved. You can follow us on Facebook to keep updated on our house-building project.  We want to begin construction in October 2016.  Thanks and God Bless!

Dear Friends:

 

I’m helping out an orphanage in Mexico and you can help too.  It’s so simple yet it will make a huge difference in the lives of many sweet little kids.

 

Can you imagine what life is like for these children before they find their way to an orphanage?  Most are being taken from broken, poverty stricken, or abusive homes…. 

           

Damian came to the orphanage directly from the hospital after being physically abused by his father.  It took a week in hospital to recover from his injuries.  He is only 3 years old and his life started in poverty and pain.  Now he is in a loving Christian haven with all of his needs provided.

 

This new haven is called Ancla de Amor (Anchor of Love) and the smiles on the children’s faces are proof of the love that surrounds them and secures them.

 

The orphanage was started less then 2 years ago by a young Canadian couple, Brian and Clarissa Krahn.  These folks are passionately dedicated to these Mexican children and have an amazing vision from God of how to create the best possible home environment for them. 

 

Their church in Canada has provided enormous support to help them get started. The local Mexican government is thrilled with the work they are doing and have more children needing placement.  But they are presently full to capacity with the twelve children they have.

 

The self-supporting orphanage is located on a farm with pigs, sheep, chickens and a fully operational citrus orchard.  A farm environment is part of God’s plan for the children of the orphanage.   Here they learn life skills, a strong work ethic, and teamwork in a loving Christian environment.

 

As Ancla de Amor has been a wonderful blessing to so many, we need your help to expand the blessing.  More housing needs to be built to accommodate more children in need.  This is why I am writing you today.

 

Our hope is to have a new house built this year that will accommodate ten more children waiting to enter.  Building cannot begin until the funds are in place so we are spreading the word to everyone we know, praying that hundreds of people will join us by giving a small donation and then tell their friends as well.

 

Will you join us?  And will you also share this exciting fundraising endeavor with your friends and family via email or Facebook?  Would you or someone you know be willing to throw a birthday party where all the presents are financial donations to Ancla de Amor?  We are waiting on God to do amazing things in the hearts of many to raise the funds for this wonderful cause.  Will you be a part of that plan?

 

Most of us would not even miss a $25 or $50 donation.  It might mean one less dinner out at our favorite restaurant or not buying our daily  “coffee to go” for one month.  Yet for the 10 Mexican children waiting to be rescued from their present circumstances, $25 or $50 would literally be one step closer to heaven on earth.

 

Please consider being part of their rescue.  If you are Canadian and choose to help us, then visit the website of Ancla’s Canadian umbrella ministry, “Children of Hope” at www.childrenofhope.info/ancla-de-amor/.  If you are American, please visit our American supporting agency, "Orphanos" at www.orphanos.org/donate.  Please specify your donation towards "Ancla de Amor" and "Build A House" campaign.  Once you fill in the blanks, you have changed a young life forever.

 

These children gather for “Circle Time” every afternoon, where joy fills the air as they sing, share, laugh and so much more.  The kids love their new home and all the wonderful caregivers around them.  God is happy too as these children learn about Him and no longer live in emotional, physical and spiritual poverty.

 

Thank you for opening your heart to these sweet kids and helping us reach our goal to house another ten children.  When donating please remember to choose the orphanage home “Ancla de Amor” before processing your donation.

 

I am committed to helping Ancla de Amor raise the funds needed to expand their blessing.  Please join me, so that more children can be placed in this loving, Christian environment.

 

God Bless You,

P.S.  Some of these children (even at 13 years old) do not know how to read and write…  But they will.  And you can help.  By giving as little as $25 or as much as God directs you to give, we will soon have the funds and means to rescue more hurting and hungry children.  Your donation gives each child hope of a future full of love and happiness.
