Help Some Orphans

K's friend Julie is on the Board of Advisors of the Ascent Russian Orphan Aid Foundation, an organization:

that spends 100% of donations to provide basic necessities such as food, clothing and shelter to orphans and homeless children living in the former Soviet Bloc countries.
I wanted to pass along its latest fund raising effort, from their latest newsletter:
We have been offered a challenge grant by www.ThisOldStore.com ! Torez Special Needs Orphanage in Ukraine is home to over three hundred children living with many types of disabilities. With $10,907.50 Ascent can purchase some desperately needed therapy equipment for the orphans. ThisOldStore.com is willing to give us half that amount, if we can raise the additional $5,453.75 by October 31st.

As a challenge grant the offer is only on the table until October 31st 2009! Please help us to reach this goal for the children of Torez. A donation of any size will make a difference!
You can get more information and make a contribution here. Let's do this!
