Every Day

Every day, a little girl with a chronic illness drinks pure water from a hallway fountain in the boarding school where she lives ... because years ago, a friend gave to New Thing.

Every day, a blind boy in the Belarusian city of Shklov flushes a functioning toilet in the boarding school where he lives ... because years ago, a friend donated to New Thing.

Every day, when a child with disabilities complains of a headache, a nurse in Osipovichi goes to a cabinet for ibuprofen, and it’s there ... because years ago, a friend made a contribution to New Thing.

  • A homeless man pulls on the winter boots he received in our soup-kitchen “boutique”...

  • A hearing-impaired child snuggles into a warm bed in a dorm room with weather-tight windows...

  • A foster mom pulls her kids’ laundry out of a sturdy, reliable washing machine....

  • A young woman unable to walk pedals a tricycle, the only way she can get around....

When you give to New Thing, it feels like a moment.

But for the one you’re helping, it’s not just a moment.

It’s life.

It’s every day.

On their behalf, I just want to say, Thank you for making every day good.

Love lasts.

More adventures to come.

Thanks for journeying with us!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
