Cards for a Cause
Christ with a Y on Sale Now!
Our Usborne book fundraiser for August and September was a lot of fun and we are excited about all the children who will be getting a book thanks to your generosity! We know some of you have been anxiously awaiting our October fundraiser... well, here it is!
For $30, you receive a fun box of 30 embellished greeting cards and Christy's Legacy of Hope receives a donation to use towards our mission of putting a smile on the face of orphaned children all over the world. That's double the smiles, because everyone loves to receive mail!
Boxes will be delivered to CLOH by early November for pick up, so you could have your cards in time for Christmas or as a gift for someone else! Follow the link here to see all of the card collections and for instructions.

Recently, Christy’s Legacy of Hope was nominated by two wonderful people. Kari Cappello and Warren Boswell, employees at DTE Energy, were very thoughtful to think of us.
A voting process took place online in which several $10,000 grants were to be given away through The DTE Foundation. We got the word out to all of our supporters and they voted continuously for several weeks. It was great fun and we cannot thank everyone enough for all the voting
that took place!
During the month of August,
we waited for an announcement
from DTE Foundation. To our
great surprise, Christy’s Legacy of
Hope was one of eight nonprofit
organizations that was awarded
$10,000! What a huge honor to
have been nominated and
then to have received this blessing.
Thank you DTE Foundation for this amazing grant! We can’t wait to use this money for something very special throughout the year.
The Lord is always doing great things through CLOH!
Working to Put a Smile On a Sweet Face
Over 700 blue duffle bags filled with all brand new items were delivered to Wayne and Monroe County this past year. We had so many people donate filled bags as well as the items we needed to pack more.
So many volunteers helped out with
this project which included area
businesses, churches, and companies.
Many children are welcomed into
foster homes with only what they are
wearing. A foster family doesn’t
always have what that child needs
when things happen quickly. Christy’s
Legacy of Hope fills these bags with
everything a child would need for 24
hours until their foster parents are able
to get what is needed.
Diapers, formula, toys, and other
essential items are also donated.
Just one of the many ways Christy’s Legacy of Hope works to put a little smile on a sweet face.
