She – and they – will be delighted

Updated: Sep 6, 2019

Just a quick note of thanks. I asked for help in giving “The Great Kozovaya” a birthday present – a shoe dryer, a closet, and a TV set – to be given in her honor to the shelter for abused and abandoned children in her hometown.

Friends responded generously, giving a total of $1,520. The goal is met! Today I’ll notify Kozovaya of this lovely gift, and she will have the joy of calling Natalia, the shelter director, to let her know that help is on the way.

Thank you to all who gave, and to all who have given with such an open heart down through the years. Your compassion is changing lives in Belarus, and I am grateful.

Much love, Doug Brendel
