In August, 2011, Village to Village International launched its online website, desiring to help children in need around the world by spreading the vision that many small gifts can have a big impact. Over the past few months we have witnessed the power of selfless community. A unified group of people that have believed that one life, one little boy, one family, is important. And not only have they believed it in theory, but they have acted by giving.
Village to Village International wants to thank you, the friends, family, and community of Aaron and Nichole Marshall for encouraging them on this journey. We also want to thank those that had no personal connection to the Marshall family, but gave out of love believing that children matter. All 191 gifts received, ranging from $5 to $2,000 have been added together to meet their goal of $10,000. Village to Village International has sent this amount to the Marshall's adoption agency to cover expenses such as; plane tickets, lodging, and legal fees. This week they will bring their son home and we celebrate with them.
As we have been blessed by the Provider of All, we can come together and bless others. Because they matter!
