As I mentioned in the email, Children's Hope is humbled to be the recipient of the Race for Hope in honor of Cole Ellis' extraordinary life!  The goal is to raise funds for a home for orphaned young boys in Jacmel, Haiti.  Haiti has a very high number of orphaned children and God has called Children's Hope to provide homes for a total of 20 children to date.   We have plans to expand in order to offer a safe, healthy and nurturing home for more children.  One of these homes will be known as Cole's House which will house up to 10 boys.  Please click on the link below and register for the race.

Children's Hope was also honored recently to be the recipient of the Glenn Gordy Memorial Fund.  Money was raised at a special dinner provided by chefs Anita and Dan Hughes from Louisiana in memory of Glenn Gordy.  Glenn's wife, Janet, chose CH to be this year's recipient, and we are so grateful.  The dinner was a night of wonderful fellowship and incredible food.  From the tapas to the best key lime pie ever (oh and there were the lemon cookies and cheese and grits), Anita and Dan had our taste buds dancing!  Our thanks to Janet and her children for sharing our passion in caring for orphans.
