Do you want your Kazakh cutie to be a star?

Today we were contacted by Muriel, a fellow Kazakhstan Adoptive Parent and co-organizer of Kazapalooza. Muriel is going to create a 2009-2010 calendar staring YOUR Kazakh cutie. All you have to do is send her a high resolution photo of your child along with the month you want he/she featured in by November 15th.

The calendar will feature both Kazakh and American holidays and will be $20. The calendars will go on sale starting November 15th and will be shipped to you during the first two weeks of December, just in time for the holidays.

Half the proceeds from the calendar will go to our continued efforts to support Kazakhstan orphans.

Send photos by NOVEMBER 15th to

What a terrific gift for family and friends!

Great news!

Today we received word that Two Hearts is now a 501 (c) 3 non profit agency! All monetary donations are tax deductible! We are so excited and pray this will increase our support of the children in Kazakhstan.

We also learned that each sponsored child will be taken to the toy store to purchase a toy for themselves! Imagine the looks of excitement these children will have when they learn they will be going to a toy store! Hardly do they get to leave the orphanage, their lives are the same day after day.

So far we have 31 sponsored orphans! Please consider sponsoring an orphan and making their lives a little happier this New Year!

Thank you to The DeSantis Family (RI), The Woods Family (CA) and The Elrod Family (IL) for your donations this week.

Sponsor an orphan!

Believe it or not, the holiday season is fast approaching. This year, we are giving you the chance to truly make a difference in the life of an orphan in Kazakhstan. We have been blessed with the opportunity to provide each child at the Ulan Orphanage in Taraz with a special gift of their own for the New Year holiday.

There are 160 kids, ages 5-16, living at this children's home. Your $15 donation would sponsor 1 child and provide them with a great gift! Two Hearts will make sure that each child receives a gift! To save on shipping costs and time, all gifts will be purchased in Kazakhstan.

Any extra donations provided will go towards purchasing bicycles and roller blades for the children.

You can donate by using the paypal link on the left.

Deadline for supporting an orphan is December 1, 2008. We hope you will consider the children of Kazakhstan this holiday season! We can't find forever families for all the children but the very least we can do is make their holidays happy!

These are some of the children you will be helping (picture taken June 2008):

A special thank you to Hairy's Salon in Lebanon, MO for supporting our fundraiser and the Kudwa family for your donations this week.

Please don't forget October is blanket month!
