Beacon House Adoption Services is just one of 35,000+ groups listed by members at iGive. Here's a little more detail on them, as provided by members or the organization itself:
WINDOWS OF HOPE is the current fund raising project Beacon House has in Russia. In the city of Vladivostok, Russia, Children’s Hospital No. 4 desperately needs new windows. The windows help protect the children from the cold, and in the Far East portion of Russia, the winters can be cruel. Average temperatures are:
Mean annual temperature: +4.3 °C (39.7 °F)
Average temperature in January: -13.7 °C (7.3 °F)
Average temperature in August: +20.2 °C (68.4 °F)
Naturally, it is important to have proper windows to ward off the cold in this region. Beacon House is committed to helping this orphanage provide a healthful environment for the children residing there. The orphanage itself has 95 windows, and they have been able to replace only about 15 of them at this point. The replacement is taking place 1 at a time, as funds become available.
Total raised through iGive: $1,180.21
The most recent check issued to Beacon House Adoption Services by iGive was sent on Oct 31, 2013 for $25.42.
