Congratulations to International Proxy Parents: internationalproxyparents.com
Here’s what Vered has to say about this fearless organization:
“This non-profit organization strives to help less-privileged children in the Caribbean island of Jamaica. It’s a small organization, which struggles to fundraise in order to better the lives of children residing in children’s homes in the island, as well as supporting excelling school students whose families are unable to meet the required school expenses.
The donation will make possible the support of more students who are ambitious and talented, as well as improving the lives of children in the supported children’s homes.”
A little more info:
“The International Proxy Parents (IPP) was founded in 1980 and incorporated in Jamaica under the provisions of the Companies Act, exclusively for the purpose of charity. The mission of IPP is to relieve poverty, suffering and distress among the less privileged children in Jamaica and to provide financial assistance for their education and well being.”
