Crossroads’ kids serving Thai children’s home

It was a challenge. Would they, could they, take it on? Someone had suggested that the kids of our own staff consider travelling to Thailand to help a children’s home.

The proposal was a trip. But trips cost money. Could these kids raise it? Their parents, working full time with us here at Crossroads, have no salaries. All are full time volunteers. How, then, could these kids raise the money to cover the costs of their flights, accommodation and food?

They rose to their challenge, each in his or her own way. Some got sponsorship for long distance running. Some turned to art and made stationery. Some did bake sales. The methods varied, but the outcome was awesome. They got the money and off they went.

The kids ran a weekend camp for 80 orphans. They took school equipment, toys and other supplies from our warehouse as a gift.  They led songs, dances, crafts and sports, all reminding each other that, wherever in the world, what kids need most is friendship, play and love.
