Ravenna's Dream!



Hi!

I am 6.5 years old.

I get to spend a week in December at an orphanage in Mexico.  You can watch a video about it by CLICKING HERE!

I am making paper airplanes for the kids there so we can throw a HUGE paper airplane party!

I am also collecting donations to help the orphanage with medical supplies and things to help the kids.

Will you sponsor me?

You can sponsor me for each paper airplane that I make.

My Mama and I are keeping count!

Or you can just make a donation and we will bring it with us to help with medical supplies.

My mom and I will try to update this website with pictures and stories of our trip as we go.

Thanks for helping the orphans in Mexico with me!

* You can sponsor me per plane by leaving a commment here
or
* You can make a donation with the Chip In on the right hand side. It is a safe way to make a donation (goes through PayPal). If you do leave me a comment with your address so I can send you a thank you note!

**** I am so excited! I have raised $101 already! (we are waiting for Chip In to show it)****
**** I am hoping to make at least 80 planes because there are about 80 kids at the orphanage, you can sponsor any amount per plane that you want!*****

  2. Hi Ravenna! What a great idea! A paper airplane party sounds SO fun. How many do you think you will make? How much does it cost to sponsor you per airplane? I love your drawn picture at the top of this site. The colors are really pretty. You are a good artist. I am sure the kids will be so happy to meet you!

  4. Hello Ravenna! ~

    What a great idea!! So proud of you and your servant's heart for the little children in Mexico. I know they will love playing paper airplanes with you, too?

    I have the same questions as Kelly: How many do you think you will make, and how much to sponsor per airplane?

    Have fun on your trip!!

  9. Ravenna, when do you leave on your trip? Uncle Brian and I would like to make a donation, but probably won't be able to do it until next month. Is there a cut off date?

    What a big heart you have! :)

  13. Dear Ravenna,
    What a beautiful heart for Jesus you have! I love seeing you because you are always smiling! I am very happy to participate personally in your effort to bless the children in the orphanage. I also would like, on behalf of your Children's Ministry Church family, to contribute the supplies you might need to make your paper airplanes. Please come visit me at church so we can get you all set up to bring joy to all those kids in Mexico you'll get to see! Love you ! Karola
