Our annual Big Little Hearts Garden Party in Belgium that has traditionally raised a significant amount of the funding Little Hearts Organisation depends on each year, had to be cancelled again due to Covid. However, this didn’t stop our team in Belgium from designing innovative new fundraisers to support Little Hearts Organisation.
They came up with the idea for people to organise their own party safely at home with a unique party box for 10 people. Little Hearts supporters were treated to our specially brewed Little Hearts Beer ‘Hartendief’, and other unique party box treats including Little Hearts card games, tapenades, breadsticks and homemade hummus. All the proceeds went to the Little Hearts Orphanage.
We have been working hard to build a new funding base from within the Little Hearts community from those that can afford small monthly donations. However, this process takes a long time. Meanwhile, it’s thanks to the amazing initiatives organised by our supports, such as the ‘Party Box’ initiative described above, that keeps food on the table, kids in school, and the lights on at Little Hearts while we make our way through this crisis.
We would like to send our heartfelt thanks to our team and supporters in Belgium, who do so much to keep our kids here in Cambodia safe, healthy, and hopeful for the future.
