Expanding Treasure In Heaven

As you know, our Build A School campaign via Facebook ended on Christmas day, and we raised near $700 solely from our Facebook fans! Wow! What a blessing. Thanks to all of you who participated in this effort.

Above is the blueprint for the school we are going to build. In February, the orphanage will receive visits from a board member, and hopefully we can get things moving a bit quicker on the school.

As far as the orphanage is concerned, we are needing to expand there also. John, our man in charge in Liberia, has said that we have around 64 kids now in House 5 and need to enlarge the hall, add more dining tables, and complete the plumbing!

The great thing is that we can accomplish this task because of the donations and interest we receive from people (like you) who have either traveled to Africa and know the conditions of orphanages, or those who have been informed by others who have traveled and experienced it hands-on.

Regardless, here's to a new year of making dreams come true for our children in Liberia.

God bless,
Treasure In Heaven

Meeting Our Goal

So far, the Build A School campaign on Facebook is going very well! A big thanks to all of our donors.

Our goal is to raise $40,000 by the New Year! WOW. That's not much time...So far we have raised $4,500 - not including our Facebook donations which total around $300.

Help us get the word out! We are looking forward to building a relationship with our Facebook fans, so that the orphanage and school feel like something you directly impact - because you do!

These children have a wonderful attitude and so much optimism! Thank you for supporting our organization.

Goals for the Next Year

We had a board meeting last week and have decided to plan for some new and exciting things for Treasure In Heaven, hopefully taking effect in the next year:

1. Build an additional cottage to serve 12 more children.

2. Water improvement - this is a TOP priority!

3. Visit from Phil Kinzer.

4. Build a School on Facebook! Keep an eye on our page for details...

5. Food supplements for the health of the children.

6. Kent McAlister, Pam Jernigan, and Brad Gautney have ideas to build a clinic! Fantastic!

Well, that's the plan. Ambitious, yes, but we can do it with your help!

Build A School on Facebook!

Yesterday, Treasure in Heaven launched its campaign to Build A School using our Facebook page as the sole resource for funds. If we can accumulate approximately 2,000 fans, and each fan donates around $25, then we should be able to have enough funding by New Year's!

Also, we've added a little incentive here: a free roundtrip ticket to anywhere in the US that Southwest Airlines flies! Every person that donates to our program will have their name entered in a drawing for the ticket. The drawing will be held sometime toward the end of December (watch our Facebook page for details).

If you have any questions about this campaign, feel free to contact us here. Otherwise, you can donate via Facebook!

Orphan Biographies

Hello all,

We are going to begin using our Facebook page as a platform to post short bios of the children (like on the website). Now you can get to know the kids you support, what their aspirations are, what characteristics they have, etc.

Become part of our online community! Check out the biographies here.
