Make a difference in the life of an orphan

I still have to finish journaling our trip to the DC area, but while Kylie is taking her afternoon nap I want to give Kylie's friends (both actual and virtual) a chance to help out other girls still in China. This morning I was made aware of an auction put on by Love Without Boundaries to benefit children awaiting heart surgery.

Here's a bit of information about the auction (copied from an email from a fellow FCC member).

"In every orphanage in China, children in need of heart surgery wait. Four years ago, Love Without Boundaries began their "Born in My Heart" art auction as a tribute to the miracle of adoption and to raise funds for these essential operations. You can truly save the life of a child by taking part from May 18-23. Every penny raised will help to heal precious children, giving them the opportunity to grow and thrive, and perhaps even find a family of their very own. So please bid often and bid generously! Items will be added throughout the day on Friday, May 18th and the auction will end Wednesday, May 23rd when the final item closes.
This year we have approximately 250 amazing items, all donated by our fabulous supporters! Just a few of the items you won't want to miss are: an autographed guitar from Steven Curtis Chapman, THREE giclee prints of "Qi Pan"---an incredible oil painting created especially for LWB by Zhao Kailin, a life-size Terra Cotta Warrior statue from Xian, several personalized custom lifebooks, beautiful watercolors, acrylics and oil paintings, collection-edition dolls, custom adoption videos, a stunning array of quilts including several "100 Good Wishes" quilts, photography, gift baskets, jewelry, paintings by Chinese orphans, clothing, heritage items, and so much more!"
