Birthday party donation!

Inspired by the compassionate stories and touching photographs from their mom’s recent mission trip to the Malnutrition Center in Guatemala, South Carolina siblings Taylor (11) and Lynsee (10) decided they wanted to help make a difference too. Taylor, who was adopted from Romania, and Lynsee, who was adopted from Guatemala, share the same birthday one year apart. For their joint birthday party they asked guests to bring shoes for children at the Malnutrition Center in place of gifts. Thank you, Lynsee and Taylor, for this creative and bighearted idea, and thanks to all of those who attended the birthday festivities and generously donated 86 pairs of shoes to some very precious Guatemalan children!
