MAGAZINE N° 17
We are so blessed and we feel so grateful … and this thanks to you! In the second week of March we received an e-mail from the Courtyard Children’s Foundation and they wrote us following:
"I would once again like to thank you for a well written article in your Magazine regarding the Courtyard Children’s Foundation. I have received multiple great feedback not only from friends & family, but also from two of the homes. Stg. Matoekoe and Stg. Odoniti have received multiple visits from people with donations.
You have supported the foundation since the beginning and we are all very grateful."
This is not only thanks to us, but also thanks to you who read the article and took immediate action! Popular Places will continue to support the homes with donations. We hope you will do too.
Do unto others what you want them to do unto you. If you were living on the street would you want someone to give you money? You must show Mercy in order to receive Mercy.
