I also have a huge praise! Yesterday,I received a sock from our Sock Fundraiser going on at my church. Inside was a folded check. Upon opening it, my eyes widened to see it written out for $5,000 from a person that I cannot place a face to! What a blessing for our Ministry! Thank-you!

Enjoy your day and thank you for what you do for our babies!

March Madness 2

The Latest at PHFTC


Just a reminder that our March Madness Campaign has started! IF you didn't read the last update, here's a recap! With our fundraising season upon us and with me preparing to leave for Romania in 54 days (but whose counting), we raise the bulk of our money for the purchasing I do while there, now! While I am there, I purchase almost all of our Oradea Hospital supplies, a quarter of our Sibiu Hospital supplies and contact each Foundation Director that we collaborate with and purchase their greatest needs.

However, there are other expenses and purchasing and requests throughout the year and it has become needful to find monthly financial partners.This will allow us to budget better and to serve other foundations more freely.So we have created this March Madness fundraiser around that need!

We are looking for two groups of monthly givers:

#1 The Sweet Sixteens: This group will make a pledge of $15-$35 a month

#2 The Elite Eight:  This group will make a pledge of $40 or more a month

** and if you want to do smaller amounts that is welcome too


Simply shoot me an email or message with your name and which team you are choosing. If you want our bank information for an automatic transfer, we can help with that or we can discuss other modes. I will be updating you all on the STATS every few days both here, the website and Facebook.

And lastly, that brings me to another point! We have our new website published! It is still is being adjusted, but I'm so excited to share it with you! Please check it out and let me know what you think!  http://www.projecthopeforthechildren.org/

March Madness

The Latest at PHFTC


Hello Friends,

    In two short months, I will be back in Romania for my annual oversight trip; this is where I do the bulk of the supply purchasing, visit with the Hospital's doctors and nurses, and reconnect with our small staff and other Foundation Directors. It is so very hard to wait a year to be back where why heart calls home, so you can imagine the anticipation I am living under right now! 

   This is also the busiest time of year for me as we do the bulk of our fundraising prior to the trip! I love sharing God's goodness throughout the year to the Ministry and what He has taught me AND I love seeing your familiar faces! So please pray for my family and me over the next couple of hectic months.

  This season also brings us to one of our favorite fundraisers of the year~ March Madness! This has been a popular fundraiser in the past so I encourage you to commit again or join in this year! For the whole Month of March we are going to be looking for people to pledge to a monthly donation. Having monthly donors who support PHFTC is becoming more important as we grow and makes it so much easier to budget. Will you consider joining us?

#1 The Sweet Sixteens: This group will make a pledge of $15-$35 a month

#2 The Elite Eight:  This group will make a pledge of $40 or more a month

** and if you want to do smaller amounts that is welcome too

2017 Book Fundraiser


   


HI All!

 I have an exciting announcement! Our first Fundraiser for 2017 just started! It is an online book fundraiser hosted by Rebecca from Barefoot Books for children. She is generously donating her entire commission of 30% of the sales to PHFTC!

If you are thinking ahead to birthdays, Easter or any other special time in your family, this is a great way to find unique books and support this Ministry! I leave for my annual trip to Romania so we need at least $10,000 to come in over the next 3 months!

Please take a moment to visit our Facebooksite                                             https://www.facebook.com/events/1095432443899887/ or go directly to the shopping link of our party http://bit.do/projecthope

Your support is such a blessing to us! Please, remember that as PHFTC expands to meet the growing needs of our hospitals in Romania and many foundations we collaborate with, that we need more donations. Consider sharing our ministry with two or three of your friends that you think might be interested in the type of foundation we are and the hurting people we help!

Thank-you and be blessed today!

2017 Update

The Latest at PHFTC


Hello Friends!

   I wanted to send a brief update of what we at PHFTC were doing as we gear up for 2017, but before I do that I wanted to remind you to send your thoughts and prayers, (no matter your political convictions) up for the refugees- the people- who are being detained. The emotional trauma and physical discomfort that most of these people, many of them children, have gone through in the past months and years is more than we will go through in a lifetime. The abruptness of the recent order to stop their progress here has caused much pain and we can all be compassionate for the human hearts breaking now in these families while this is sorted. My heart cries for the confusion the young children have endured in their short lives.

This year, PHFTC will be making a slight change in our presentations. While Romania is our primary country and will continue to be our primary work, we want to be ready for other opportunities that come to us! As many of you know, our ministry is unique in that it partners with many other vetted NGO's by donating supplies to their projects. Because my base is here in the States and our Employee works primarily in the Oradea Hospital,we have found it to be a very productive way to help others. The goal is always the same- caring for orphans and needy families! This we do very successfully, whether it is supplying medicine, food, formula, diapers, wipes or supplies for after school programs for needy children!

 When you donate this year, your money will go into the General Fund, as usual and will be used for whatever PHFTC needs or for the special projects we supply. The only difference is if we partner to help an orphanage in India or a refugee camp in Greece. This has always been my goal for the ministry to help anywhere there is a need!

If you want your donation specifically used for only a Romanian project, please note it on the donation and we will gladly designate it for only that! Again, this is really no different from what we have always done, but as the ministry grows and expands, we are eagerly looking forward to helping as many families and children here and abroad as we can in Jesus' name!

We will have much news in the coming weeks of the unveiling of our new website and Spring fundraising! Thank-you as always for your interest and support! If you are finding that you are not always receiving these emails, please contact me at caring@projecthopeforthechildren.org  so we can work on correcting it!

Blessings,

Mona

Wrappin' It Up!

Dear Friends,

   As we come to the end of the year and enter into the Christmas Season, I want to thank you for making Project Hope for the Children possible! We have seen so many blessings and opportunities this year come about by your faithful support! I would like to highlight a few for you!

  In 2016 we were able to:

         Continue supporting some wards in the Oradea Hospital. This means that we bought supplies sch as: diapers, wipes, cereal, shampoo, baby gear, gloves, cleaning supplies, sheets, towels and creams for the Premature Ward, as well as helping other foundations on the Genetica Ward and elsewhere. 

               We were able to continue to pay a salary with insurance and Social Security to Alina ,our very dedicated Sponsored Employee. She works tirelessly with the babies on her ward. It has been a difficult year for her with one of our babies passing away and another one critically ill.

  We donated around $1500 in food supplies to the organization Romanian Relief (http://romanianrelief.org) for their foster care programs.

     We donated over $1000 worth of diapers and wipes to Forget Me Not Ministries (http://fmnministries.org/) for their store. This store is used by the Roma community for their needs. We also have purchased several times from their JoyBeadz store and sold the Roma women's jewelry in an effort to make them self sustaining, which means less abandonment at the hospitals!

         We have continued to support and buy baby supplies for our Hospital in Sibiu. We have one Volunteer Nurse Liaison there, Cornelia, and we average over 30 babies and children a month. 

         This year we have had the great opportunity to partner with a new Romanian Association called Asociata Zambet si Sperenta Viitor, who is starting an after school program in their village for Roma children, This program is supported by the City Hall and will provide a meal, hygiene training, Bible stories and homework help to the destitute children in that village. We were so impressed by their vision and love for the gypsy families that we have been purchasing building supplies for the renovation of the building they will use. (https://www.facebook.com/ -Zambet-si-Speranta-Pentru-Viitor-1573821832835088/?hc_ref=PAGES_TIMELINE).

    I have also been very busy this year with more speaking engagements and more time spenton this Ministry I love so much!

   In 2017, we are looking into the future and praying about how we can expand

              We are looking to add to our Board.~ If you are interested please contact                           me!
              We are hoping to set up a new website as I am not blogging anymore.
              We are hoping to find sponsors for a part time salary for me.
              We will be applying for grants to help with our projects and salary.
              We are moving to help beyond Romania, which has been a DREAM of mine                                     for years, and serve in other countries, as well as our own!
              We are always looking for more churches, organizations and                                                         individuals to  partner with us!

Thank you again and if you haven't made a donation yet this year, this is a fabulous time! You can send it to Project Hope for the Children, Inc, 6983 Chase Rd, Fabius, NY 13063 or go to our homepage and make a PayPal donation.

And don't forget you can support us by shopping on AmazonSmile https://smile.amazon.com and typing us in as your charity of choice! Project Hope for the Children, Inc Fabius. Just my Christmas Shopping has added $5! Every little bit helps! 

May you have a peaceful Christmas as you remember the Reason we celebrate!

Love,

Mona
