Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Eastern Lighthouse just announced a strategic partnership with Sf. Leontie Orphanage in Romania. Starting with January 2014, the Romanian Orphanage will be the Pilot site for the Donate Your Birthday program, an easy to create fund raising mini-campaign to help Romanian orphans. This builds on the very successful campaign of "Donate Your Glasses" in 2013, targeting gifts of lightly used eyeglasses to Romanian Orphanages.
Sf. Leontie Orphanage in Romania has 125 children. All of them will benefit from the Program. Each child will be provided a birthday cake with candles, a small gift, and a birthday card. For most of the kids, this is the first birthday cake they ever had.
The Cincinnati based Charity is looking at scaling the Donate Your Birthday program further, and is actively looking for other orphanages in Romania to partner with.
Helen Sotropa, one of the founders says about the Donate Your Birthday Program: "We now provide an easy way for children in America to engage in fund raising for the Romanian Orphans. Donate Your Birthday allows a one click creation of a gift-giving channel to someone who needs it most. With one birthday in America we can brighten the birthdays of 10 orphans in Romania."
All the funds collected are donated to children in Romania, via an Eastern Lighhouse qualified network of Orphanages. Local resources are also donating their time to the Donate Your Birthday program, so public donations accompanying the birthdays are going directly to their purpose – helping Romanian Orphans get a better future.
