Red Letters Campaign (RLC)

Some of you may have noticed I added a new link to our blog, I thought I would take a minute and fill you in on RLC.

What RLC is about

We at the Red Letters Campaign (RLC) believe that YOU have the power to reduce extreme poverty, fight preventable disease and connect orphans with loving families. Our mission is to provide you the tools and a network of partners and like-minded people that enable you to be an active part of the solution - the way you want to participate.

RLC is a different kind of non-profit designed to support you in your passions - not the other way around. Whether your passion focuses on the HIV epidemic in Africa, providing safe drinking water to Central America or finding homes for children without families in India, we can connect you to people and resources that help you make a difference in the way that you desire.

Whether you’ve just recently become aware of the challenges faced by the orphaned, widowed and extreme poor or have already rolled up your sleeves and joined the front line, the Red Letters Campaign will connect you with the people and resources you need to turn passion into action.

So happy to find your blog. Look forward to sharing your journey with you and hearing that your son will be coming home! We have just brought our Ethiopian daughter home this past March and it has been amazing!
Want to recommend a book to add to your list. It is called
28:Stories of AIDS in Africa by Stephanie Nolen. I just found it so interesting. Hope you read it and learn as much as I did.
God bless,
Kristin
