By now, you’re likely familiar with Christel DeHaan and her wonderful charity, Christel House, that helps break the cycle of poverty by giving impoverished children and their families something that we all take for granted: education. You’ve heard stories of children who have gone through the program and come out to be successful and happy, and to share their successes with their communities. You’ve heard about how Christel has helped families by providing healthcare, counseling and job training opportunities. But, how does she do it? How is one person able to help so many?
If you ask Christel, she’ll tell you, “Poverty is an immense problem in our world. No single person can solve it alone.” And she’s right. Christel thinks of the children, now over 3,300 in the program, as her own. That’s why she continues to fund the efforts with her own money, and the generous donations of people like you. In fact, 100% of the donations she receives directly benefit those children and support their hard work to make a better future for themselves. That’s one of the best things about donating to Christel House – you can go here and see exactly what your donation will cover and who it can help.
Christel House has helped transform the lives of many children around the world. I’m honored and humbled to be so close to such a fantastic organization, and to its founder. I’ve met a lot of these children in person, and the drive and passion they demonstrate is absolutely moving. I encourage you to learn a little more about Christel House for yourself.
