After trying for days Kate at Love without Boundaries got through to Yifeng SWI!!! They are in desperate need!!! Please please please consider donating even just $10 towards the heaters that will keep Paisley and her friends and the wonderful Ayi's who care for them warm! More cold weather is on it's way!

from Kate at Love Without Boundaries

Thank you everyone for your concern for Yifeng. I just received an email from our facilitator in China and Yifeng is in desperate need. They are in one of the worst hit areas. Director Yao has said their solar heaters (for heating water) and all their air conditioners (which are also used for heating) have all broken due to the cold. The normal power supply has not been restored to their area yet but the local government has given the orphanage the highest priority so their lights are on. The local government has also given money for blankets and coats for the children but it wasn’t enough for all the children and the price of formula has jumped 30% . Director Yao has asked for 3 A/C units to keep the children warm as a first priority. The price of the A/C units (wall or tower) are $350-$625 each so we would need between $1050 and $1875 for all 3 units.

Now, a little information about Love Without Boundaries (LWB) and how to donate. LWB is a volunteer organization so 97% of all donations reach the children. Also, all donations are tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt for tax purposes. We can take donations either online or by check.

If you would like to donate online go to
www.lovewithoutboundaries.com and click on ‘Donate’; click ‘Other’; enter your information and in the ‘Notes’ section please write ‘Yifeng Orphanage Assistance’.

To donate by check make your check payable to ‘Love Without Boundaries’ and write ‘Yifeng Orphanage Assistance’ on the Memo line. Mail your check to: Love Without Boundaries, 306 S. Bryant St., Ste. C, PMB 145, Edmond, OK, 73034.

Thank you for your help and if you have any questions please feel free to email me at

UPDATE: Love without Boundaries has received $2000 so far to cover the heaters! We'd also like to make sure the orphanage has enough warm clothes, coats, blankets and basic food supplies for several weeks. Please keep giving! We are so thankful for everyones generosity!

Just gave :) Not much, but every donation will add up and hopefully soon you'll get word that your girl's orphanage has heat and blankets and food for the babies. So sorry to hear they are doing without right now, Paisley and everyone at Yifeng will be in my prayers.

We donated to Half the Sky. My girls province (Guangxi) hard but appears to be improving. Or, well it was. Southern China. Think Key West dumped on by an avalanche! Just awful.. We were there in March 2 years ago and the temperature was in the 90's! I just can not imagine what or how they are coping.
