NorthStar Academy has chosen the New Hope Foundation for our Christmas Fundraiser. New Hope Foundation is an incredible organization with a mission to "provide a caring and secure environment for orphaned infants and children with special physical and medical needs in China." Their goal is to "comfort always, to relieve often, and to save sometimes." NorthStar would like to assist them in reaching this mission by sponsoring Uriah, a precious 9-month-old boy born with Down syndrome and congenital heart disease. His current balance for hospitalization is $1,075. Another way we are hoping to help New Hope is through sponsoring Uriah's nannies for one month. New Hope Foundation creates a home environment and hires nannies (caregivers) to be mom-like figures to these sweet children. Each child has a group of 4 nannies that take shifts daily. This bill equates to $2,250.00. The remainder of the funds will go to New Hope for general operating costs. We are grateful to fundraise for an organization that is doing so much for children with so many needs.
