We can’t help it. When we saw Carter this month, the song “Happy” started playing in our heads. If only we were all this happy when we brushed our teeth, no one would ever be afraid of the dentist!
We have had another great quarter in the Safe Dental Care program, thanks to your support. Due to the donations we have received so far, we were able to begin this program in five of our Believe in Me schools – Changzhi, Jinjiang, Huainan, Lanzhou, Liupanshui, and Shaoguan. Read more.

Children’s Day is celebrated on June 1 in China, and students at our Jinjiang Believe in Me School were treated to some special food and performances.
What a feast the children had for Children’s Day! It was reported that they ate lamb skewers, shrimp, fried pork, chicken legs, fish, vegetables and fruits! We are happy to think of the many FULL tummies that night and think it’s pretty clear from these photos how much they enjoyed their special food. Read more.
Meigan, a precious two-year-old girl, started preschool in LWB’s Believe in Me Jinjiang School just a few weeks ago.
She is very shy and was a little bit scared to begin her new “big girl” life, but we hope that she will settle in with ease as she gets to know her new teachers and routine. This beautiful girl is going to learn appropriate preschool manners, participate in art activities, and be exposed to writing and reading of Chinese pinyin. Read more.
In China on New Year’s Day (February 10th this year), children in families receive money in red paper envelopes, and celebrate with large feasts, festivals and lots of time with relatives.

This year, to honor those children and make a difference in their lives, Love Without Boundaries (LWB) is doing a Red Envelope campaign to provide a New Year’s gift to an orphan. Read more.
