We are partnering with the Give Oils Foundation, and the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation to support Grace Village in building a care center for children with special needs and their families.
When Betsy asked me to be a part of this very special fundraising campaign to make a difference in the lives of orphans with special needs in China, it was a no brainer. My mother is Chinese and I lived in China for a year in 2005-2006 to study martial arts. Everyone I met was incredibly kind and generous. With its rich history and fantastic cuisine China is one of my favorite places in the world. In addition to that my sweet amazing baby brother has Down’s Syndrome and he is an absolute blessing in our family! He has made us all better, more compassionate, and more connected people than we ever could have been without him in our lives.
His name is Kenyaku, which means hidden blessing in the local dialect in the village in China where my mother’s family is from. We call him Kenny. I believe that individuals with Down’s Syndrome came to show us all what pure love looks like. Kenny has been one of my greatest teachers.
Through this care center, little ones who would otherwise be abandoned will have a chance to not only stay with their parents, as their parents will have support, but also to gain a special education. They will be able to bless their families’ lives as Kenny has blessed ours. By joining us on this journey YOU will change lives for generations! It truly is the gift that will never stop giving!
