Five years ago this month, one tweet made an impacting difference in the lives of the orphan children at the Bright Future Home in Migori, Kenya.  

Your generous response to that tweet not only paid for a little girl’s hospital bill, but provided much needed mattresses and other supplies to the home. Most important, it helped us connect with a local organization, BrightPoint for Children, that continues to be a trusted partner providing others a way to continue supporting these children.

 

A big warm thanks to those who responded five years ago! There are always other ways to help and support these children. So we invite anyone interested in helping to check out BrightPoint for Children.

 

See this VIDEO from BrightPoint for Children for the most up-to-date thanks for the recent  supply of mattresses and blankets.
