A Heart for Orphans

My dear friend Katie has a heart for orphans, and while it isn't in His plan that she and her lovely family  adopt an orphan at this point in their lives, Katie has taken this tugging at her heart and is doing something very concrete about it.  She has joined forces with a wonderful charitable organization, The Little Flowers Project, and has organized a virtual fun run to benefit the work of Little Flowers.

The gal has got spunk, and has even wrangled up several sponsors who have generously agreed to help her cause by donating some truly awesome items for a giveaway for participants in the Run for the Little Flowers Virtual 5K.

I love, love, love this idea and I love, love, love my friend and so I'm posting here today and encouraging you, my few readers, to head on over to her blog and see what this is all about.  If you too have a heart for orphans, join Katie and I and hopefully hundreds of others on October 20th for the virtual run. You don't even have to run or walk the 3.1 miles to participate. Straight up donations are also accepted ;)

Like Katie's Run for the Little Flowers page on Facebook.  Like the Little Flowers Project page on Facebook and get a glimpse into the great work they do for orphans in need of specialized care in China.  It's truly lovely work they do and you'll just about fall in love with every one of the sweet babes they care for.
