As the Vietnam trip to bring nurturing touch to children grows near we are still in need of donations. The following message is from Tina Allen, Founder of the Liddle Kidz Foundation! Even if you have donated, or not able at the time...Please read! There is a lot of information in the letter. Plus I love all support in other ways too!


I need your support to bring nurturing touch, massage and developmental movement to infants and children in Vietnam's orphanages (take 3 minutes read this email & then click to donate what you can - it all helps!) Thank you!

We had an amazing response to our request for overseas outreach volunteers and carefully selected 23 Liddle Kidz Volunteer Ambassadors from the over 700 submitted applications. You can meet our team o our newest international outreach website: www.LiddleKidz.org

Now, we are busy getting ready to bring nurturing touch and massage to the thousands of orphans we will see during our two weeks in Vietnam this December. In order to bring this valuable work to the infants, children and their caregivers I am writing to ask for your support. We need financial donations to make it possible for this outreach to take place. It is true that even the smallest donation will help. So, please don’t hesitate to donate any amount. All of these resources will be put to good use in bringing the children the care they so desperately need. Thank you for skipping that fancy cup of coffee (or many cups of coffee) and instead sending a hug to a child across the world!

Children in orphanages around the world may have food, clothing and shelter, but often they lack an essential ingredient for basic health and happiness—touch. Without it, children often feel discarded, forgotten and even untouchable, especially when their circumstances are complicated by being sick or having a disability.UNICEF statistics estimate there are 1,500,000 orphans aged 0–17 currently living in Vietnam. Children growing up in these circumstances are at great risk.

Orphans have many physical needs, and because these needs are the most immediate, they are the most urgent. Children have significant emotional needs as well. Experience has shown that orphanages find it a challenge to meet the emotional and developmental needs of children, including personalized care and attention.

The long-term effects of not receiving safe, healthy and nurturing touch can have a huge impact on a child’s stability for the future.Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Liddle Kidz Foundation is empowering children and their caregivers through the delivery of nurturing touch.

The Liddle Kidz Foundation (LKF) relies on the support of individuals, corporations and foundations to fund LKF’s initiatives, children’s services and education programs. We are extremely grateful to our many generous donors and sponsors. **********We need your help!

Please donate to help us cover much needed expenses for our upcoming Volunteer Outreach in Vietnam this DecemberWe thank our donors and are privileged to put their compassion into action.

In an effort to address the need for nurturing touch among children, Tina Allen formed the Liddle Kidz Foundation (LKF). The foundation’s mission includes setting up massage and nurturing touch programs in orphanages and children’s care settings across the globe. LKF’s goal is to provide infants and children with experiences of caring and nurturing touch that they often lack. In addition to working directly with the children, LKF volunteers teach staff and caregivers at these facilities ways to continue to provide supportive, comforting touch to the children in their care.

Don’t forget your donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.
