Happy developments in one tiny village this holiday

Our fund to build a cafeteria for a school in rural China reached a milestone this week with the opening of the new space and a celebratory meal for the students and staff!

There's still more to do, like raising enough money for the hot-lunch program. This will really help the kids whose families can't afford to give them food for lunch. My hope is that no child who uses the cafeteria will go hungry.

You can learn more about the Lan Cun Education Project and donate here.

The Bald Eagle

is "a bird of bad moral character. He does not get his living honestly . . . . He watches the labor of the fishing hawk; and when that diligent bird has at length taken a fish, and is bearing it to his nest for the support of his mate and young ones, the bald eagle pursues him, and takes it from him."

-Benjamin Franklin
