I learned about a new nonprofit group today called Caring For China (CFC). Luke Gedeon is the executive director of the CFC center and it was his post over at Middlezone Musings that got my attention. Luke has entered CFC in a group writing project; the nonprofit that gets the most blog posts can win several thousand dollars for their charity.
I took a look at CFC’s site and they look like a good group. They’re a Christian interdenominational organization with three main goals: sending teachers to China, running orphanages for abandoned children, and developing health care particularly in rural areas.
This is the part where I tease Hubby by pointing out that CFC orphanages have baby girls that need homes. The boys and I have often discussed the possibility of a baby sister, and we all love to travel. This could be an educational field trip!
Or….maybe we should try a puppy first. 🙂
Anywho. CFC is a nonprofit that warrants further interest. I’d love to see them registered with Charity Navigator because I usually go there to check out financial details. In the meantime I wish them the best and hope they win the contest.
**UPDATED** If you read Luke’s comment below you’ll discover that I’m easily confused, lol. I originally linked to a different group with a very similar name. Caring For China Center is Luke’s group, and if you look at their about page you’ll learn what I did. They have the following goals:
- The Caring for China Center advocates a balanced, rational, and compassionate relationship with China in conversations with the United States and other western governments, and in conversations with members of online and traditional media.
- The Caring for China Center is building a framework for a new form of government in China including a draft constitution, as well as recommendations for cultural changes necessary to support self-rule.
- The Caring for China Center maintains a list of advocates of change who are in prison or in other types of danger. We work with the US and other governments, as well as other organizations to request and obtain the release of many on this list.
- The Caring for China Center is careful to only work with exiles who are faithful to the cause of free speech, democracy, rule of law, and other basic human freedoms. When then help them find a place to live and work, start businesses, continue writing about change in China, or helping in any other way we can.
Sorry, Luke, for the confusion! Best of luck with the project.
