“LET LOVE SHINE” is the theme of LWB's annual campaign, inspired by Oliver, a young boy with Down Syndrome in China, who received surgery for a complex heart defect earlier this year. After being turned away by several hospitals and with the persevarance of his desperate mom, the LWB community came together with an outpouring of love for this precious boy. A few weeks later Oliver had his life-saving surgery. He recently celebrated his 2nd birthday and is blessing the world with his light and laughter.
The reality is our work with vulnerable children is often filled with darkness. Many kids in our programs have suffered through trauma, starvation, or sickness. They often come into our hands overwhelmed with sadness, but time and again we get to see that first glimmer of hope and then a brilliant ray of light—not over the horizon, but inside a child’s heart—when they experience what it means to have love poured into their lives.
YOU make this life-changing work possible. You overcome the darkness by helping us provide critical medical care, essential education, and nutritious food for children who are hungry. Today we are asking you to please make a year-end donation to help more children like Oliver get their second chance. Your gift of $50, $100, or more directly impacts lives. Our work only happens because of your generosity, and we never take that for granted.
This holiday season, as we gather with family and friends, let’s not forget those feeling helpless, hopeless, or alone. We can reach the children who are often forgotten by letting love shine with a joyful YES. Yes, I will help. Yes, I will give. Yes, I believe that LOVE CHANGES LIVES. When we come together as a community with that powerful message of hope, the miraculous occurs.
