- Abiding Presence Lutheran Church Youth Group
Sandi Glass, an LWB volunteer, was looking for a way to get her children and the youth at her church involved in helping others. The youth make and sell colorful bracelets out of soda tabs. In addition to being fun, the project recycles, is creative, and lets the youth share the word about the needs of orphaned children. Custom bracelets are available in any colors for only $4. Contact Sandi with your request.
- Eliza Weiniger Bat Mitzvah Project
Eliza's Bat Mitzvah project raised awareness and funds to help children through LWB's Nutrition and Special Projects Program. She raised over $2,000 for items such as safe cribs, warm winter coats, and life-saving incubators, providing safety, comfort, and enrichment for children residing in orphanages.
- Megan and Shanna
Megan and Shanna are not only sisters but are best friends. Their family belongs to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Amherst in Williamsville, New York, which teaches that each and every one of us matter, how to advocate for those who do not have a voice, and that we are all part of the interconnected web that is our world. Together with their church family, Megan and Shanna raised over $700 to help Bethany, a young orphaned girl in China, receive life-saving heart surgery.
