A huge thank you to everyone that helped make the 2013 DOI auction a Success. WE were totally blessed with donors and over 40 people that volunteered their time and effort to pull it off.
We raised over $8000 in donations to help build the new "Lighthouse" Children's Home and over $14,000 for DOI after all expenses!
Great job everyone!
Our 2013 Auction / fund raiser will be held Sunday evening April 7 in Mukilteo. This is typically DOI' s largest fundraiser of the year and is critical to our meeting our obligations. Our next Planning meeting will be held Wednesday 2-28-13 at 6:30 in Clinton. If you are willing to help with any part of the event or preparations - please let us know!
We have been hearing from our supporters that we need to do a better job of keeping content current and updating them about homes and projects. Look for much more regular and current content on the site - HERE IT COMES!
Thank you to everyone that made the Christmas Tree fundraiser a Big Success! It was a lot of hard work, but it paid off.
Our reserves were about gone, and between the trees and some very generous Christmas Donations, we are now able to plan ahead for 2013.
A huge thank you to Skagit Farmers Supply and the gardeners who donated space and wonderful hospitality to us; we appreciate their kindness and kinship to this cause!
Expect more frequent updates on the site as we will be using it to keep you all more informed with what is going on in DOI for 2013 and beyond. We know the year is just going to get better :)
DOI Team landing in Thailand Wednesday 1-9-13 PM. We have an associate board member 'Nicole Breiling', Linzi Wineman and Sherrie Bogdanoff that will be making they're way around northern Thailand to many of our homes over the next couple of weeks. We are anxious to hear here there reports and insights into how the homes and children are doing. Please pray for their safety and that God shows them what they need to see while filling up their hearts with love for these kids.
Due to personal issues, Greg Wineman is no longer associated with DOI. We acknowledge all of the wonderful effort and accomplishments, he contributed to our organization. We are looking forward to our continued growth and making a difference in the lives of all of the displaced orphans.
