Help Us Raise Funds to Care for Orphans
Heart of the Bride needs people like you to continue our progress and ensure the kids in our care have a future.
There may not be a more exciting opportunity to put your faith into action than to make a difference in the life of child today, a family tomorrow, and an entire nation in the future.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
There are untold numbers of people in our personal and professional lives who have a genuine desire to help others if:
- The need is genuine
- They trust the organization (or trust your endorsement)
- They know their money will be spent responsibly.
Heart of the Bride unequivocally meets those three standards and is a member of the ECFA – proof that HOB meets the highest standards of financial and ethical accountability (www.ecfa.org
). When you add your passion for our ministry it makes a compelling case for others to get involved.
HOB will provide you with ministry information, related materials; and personal guidance - then you provide the manpower. Depending on location, we can even send an HOB staff member to speak at an advocacy or awareness event. God clearly states that helping orphans is a worthy investment of our time and resources.

A FUNDRAISING SUCCESS STORY
Here is a great example of how people just like you can make a difference:
Over Christmas 2010, a couple from Michigan visited relatives in Kenya who work as missionaries in a community near House of Hope. They visited House of Hope and became aware of the critical need for a well on the property and the shortfall in funds to complete a project that’s been ongoing for over 2 years.
Prior to this trip they knew little about HOB and were not involved in our ministry.
They returned from Kenya and felt a burden to help raise awareness of Heart of the Bride and the well funding among their family and friends. The couple took action immediately and planned to host several dessert nights over a month’s time. We worked with them to provide details about HOB’s ministry and sent promotional resources they could use during their events. They said their friends are average working families with young kids and not much extra income to give but they were determined to share their burden and see what God would do to meet the need.
God has honored their efforts in a way that surprised and humbled all of us.
In less than a month and only two dessert nights their family and friends gave $14,196!
This story is so encouraging to us because it shows what people with a passion for helping orphans can accomplish if they put their heart into sharing this ministry with others. God’s provision and perfect timing have sustained this ministry through the efforts of our friends and partners and we trust that will continue. But the benefits are not just ours; it has also encouraged many people’s faith.
Here’s how this couple describes their experience:
“He [God] has been so faithful throughout this entire journey, and we are humbled by what He has done. Every time we would get overwhelmed by the amount of money left to raise another donation would arrive. It brings tears to my eyes to think about the fact that God used us for this project. He could have done it all on His own, but He gave us the privilege of being a part of it. We can't physically be present in Kenya to pour love and affection into the hearts of the precious children at House of Hope, but we can be advocates for them here in the States and provide assistance to those who are on the front lines in Kenya. We feel so blessed that God has allowed us to be a part of their lives.”
