Philippines Typhoon Melor

Typhoon Melor hit the Philippine Islands 10 days before Christmas, bringing winds and rain that destroyed entire villages along with crops and food supplies. Our local hero, Pauline Curtis-Smith, was of course unable to sit by and watch this unfold, so once the immediate threat to Ruel House and the safety of the children had passed she sprang into action.

Team #foshaw Rickshaw Run

They called it a lawnmower and proceeded to traverse India in an effort to raise money for charity! Not that I've ever met these people, or for that matter had any knowledge of their venture, until they gifted over $3000.00 from their efforts.

Grace and Jems

With a father in jail and a missing mother, Grace and Jems ended up in a child care facility in Silang, Cavite (Philippines). A history of family abuse fueled by alcohol has left these children broken... We will start the process of rebuilding their lives, filling them with love and acceptance, caring for them, educating them and most importantly, just being there for the long road ahead.
