No Hands but Ours has partnered up with a special non-profit organization, The Elison Project.The Elison project was created with the intent "To provide financial grants towards the fees associated with adopting special needs children in China who are waiting to meet their forever families." In combining forces, and bringing together women who share a passion for these little ones left behind, it is our hope that more funds will be raised , more stories will be shared, more questions answered and concerns eased, more hearts opened, and ultimately through it all, hopefully more children will find their forever families.
The Elison Project is embarking on their first fundraising cookbook. Proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will go towards grants to help more families bring their children home. They need our favorite recipes, and our stories. See details below to find out how you can help!! Thanks in advance for helping us to help those who still wait. Blessings~
