Welcome to David, Linda and Jamie's Walk the Wall Page

Thanks for taking a look at Linda, Jamie and my fundraising page!

As you may know, in 2017, we lost our son - Kieran - to brain cancer, so Linda, Jamie and I decided that our 2017 Walk the Wall would be in honour of him. Wow! You, our amazing friends and supporters, help us blast through our goal of $20,000. By the end of our fund raising we had raised over $32,000 - which was truly amazing. We felt like Kieran was truly honoured and ICC's children were truly helped by your amazing generosity.

This year, we are walking again (of course), but we are walking for a different reason.

Did you know that ICC is one of the leading organizations when it comes to pioneering new systems of care in China for abandoned children with disabilities? Did you know that ICC has what is almost certainly the best care centre for abandoned children with disabilities in the whole of China?
Did you know ICC is planning to expand our work to help even more children?

2018 is a year of new opportunities for ICC. As Founder, I couldn't be more proud of the work that we do. This year will see us building relationships with two new cities' welfare centres with the aim of beginning the process of life transformation for hundreds of new children. We will also begin our new day care centre for children with disabilities that still are living with their parents. It is the first step in expanding our services so that we can strengthen families and prevent abandonment.

These are exciting times, but they are also difficult times as the Chinese government strengthens its institutional approach to care.

That's why we need your help. We need it so that we can continue the good work that we've been doing for 25 years. We need it so that we can expand into those two new cities and launch this new day care centre. We need it so that we can continue to advocate for community based, family style care. Finally, we need it so that children in China, like my son - Kieran, can get the care, love and nurture they need to live and flourish.

Some of you may know that in May this year - China's Oasis - a book I co-wrote with Richard Harris about my journey and the journey of ICC - was published. For every supporter that gives over $100, I'd love to personally gift you a copy (at no cost to ICC) as a thank you for standing with us.

Linda, Jamie and I thank you for your generous support.

All our love,

David

 

Walk the Wall is a global movement that comes together throughout the year to raise money to care for the many abandoned and disabled children in China, and provide families with disabled children the support they need so that abandonment isn’t their only option.
