On this Friday (September 17th), from 12 to 5pm, I am having a fundraiser at Classic Touch in Kings Place Mall in support of The Gracie's Room First Hugs Program in XinXiang Henan.
This is an amazing program, providing one on one care to special needs orphans, and as director I see the benefits of this program for these disadvantaged children.
The goal of the Gracies Room program is to create a time and place when babies get *all* of their needs met. Babies in Gracies Room receive more individualized care and have the chance to develop a significant attachment to a primary caregiver. They spend time on the floor exploring their world and developing their muscles. In short, the babies get the chance to play, laugh, receive physical affection from their special nanny, and feel loved and valued.

The nannies work six days a week, Monday to Saturday, 8 hours daily. Each nanny is assigned three to five babies. She works with these same babies every day from the time they enter the program until they are adopted, enter foster care, or age out of the program.

Please come by and enjoy some Chinese Tea, home baked cookies and experience the spirit of the Chinese Tea Ceremony while listening to traditional Chinese musical instruments being played.
25% of all tea sales will be donated to Gracies Room.
I've hope to see you there!
I've uploaded more Gracies Room information to the Files Section.
