house of hope family

My friend Jerry runs the House of Hope which helps kids that were orphaned by AIDS, have HIV, or have a family member affected with HIV that is unable to care for them. The orphanage is in Nagpur, India and Jerry has been living there for the past three years to ensure these kids have the support they need to succeed in life. Six of the kids live there full-time and they support a total of twelve kids! I really admire Jerry for what he does and try to help him out as much as possible.

In early April, my daughter Peyton and I will be taking spring break with the kids from House of Hope. We will meet them in Puri, India and have four fun-filled days on the beach and exploring the sights around Puri. I am going to capture as much of the experience as possible. I would love to share with everyone what we will be doing and help raise funds for the House of Hope at the same time.

If you'd like to read more about the House of Hope, please check out this presentation.
