In our first day of fundraising, we’ve raised $505 towards our goal of $10,000 for Ma Chen and her Carnation Children’s Rehabilitation center, to help them buy a farm so the children have a place to go after their schooling finishes.  China’s One child per couple policy has meant that these children won’t have siblings or other family support for the long term.  Likewise,  China’s version of elder care is a tradition of children caring for their aging parents.  For parents of autistic children, this won’t be an option for them either, or their children.

Please consider making a donation of any size- for the price of a latte, we can all pitch in together and make a difference for these children.   You can click on the link above to be taken directly to the Chipin page- and be assured that 100% of your donation will go directly to Ma Chen and her foundation.
