I received a newsletter from Blessing Hands today, and I was truly moved by an open letter written from a student to his funder, where he thanked the funder for the educational support which he had received over the years. The student said that he would shortly graduate from his university and would be able to pursue his dream of becoming a software engineer. The student gave a summation of his educational progress, which went from him writing with pencil at the beginning of his studies, to being fully computer literate today. This student now looks forward to a prosperous life in a career that he loves and he ended his letter by making a commitment to one day helping others who are in need.

To me, there is no greater gift that you can give other than the gift of love to a child. This is what Blessing Hands offers to those wishing to make a real difference in the world. Now, I feel blessed because I have the opportunity to make a difference as well.

This charity was truly born out of love for others. Their mission and vision have such a great impact in the lives of the children and community there, as well as in the lives of those of us involved here. We are really blessed to have this opportunity to serve and be involved. What strikes me as a great feature is that this organization is truly there to serve, from top down, everyone volunteers their own time and money for others. There is so little overhead so the money goes to where it is supposed to go: to the children. This is a wonderful example of how "Love does", just go and do good for others... no hidden agenda, no coveting of glory, no greedy people... just kindness in action. It is through the little ripples touching the lives of others that we make a difference. I will continue to encourage and support this great group of people.

I met Betty at a conference where she came up to me and asked for help. I listened to her story about how Blessing Hands helps poor Chinese children have an opportunity for an education.

A few months later Betty and I connected and spent a weekend completing their system and loading in all the students and Donor information. Betty was tireless in the mission to complete the task. We accomplished her goals so she can communicate with all the students and sponsors easily.

Betty and the Blessing Hands team are dedicated to their mission and persistent in making a difference in the world. I'm happy to help.

I have known about Blessing Hands and their mission for a number of years now. At first, I didn't know that much, and I didn't get involved, but I paid attention to what I heard about them. Finally, I went to a couple of events where Blessing Hands had an information booth. When I really looked over the material, I realized how much difference they were making in the lives of poor, deserving Chinese kids, and I also was amazed at how much they could do with a small donation. I have since made several donations, and I intend to do more in the future. I feel that for a given amount of money, a donation to Blessing Hands can make more difference in the lives of people than any other nonprofit group I am aware of. A really small amount of money can result in a child getting an education... first through middle and high school, and if they do well, through college. And after this, the recipients will most likely help others in their family and their community to also get educated.. so the results just snowball!
Blessing Hands also provides water purficication for schools in poor, rural areas--literally changing the lives and the futures of all in those communities.
If you don't have unlimited wealth, but you want to help others, there is no other organization that I know of more deserving of your support --- a small donation really does make a difference -- and when you donate, you will know exactly what your contribution is going for. If it's for a student, you will receive genuine communication from that student.. your help will change their life, and their gratitude will change yours !

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do more to publicize the work they do.. somehow personalize the kids who benefit from their mission.. show more Americans that in spite of our "rivalry" with China, these kids are sweet, beautiful, and desperately in need of help --- and most of all, spread the word about how a small donation can make such a monumental difference in the life of a child.. and probably the extended family and community of that child.

Although we have known Betty C. and Eric Z. less than 2 years, our hearts are as theirs for those who need a blessing hand. We were honored to help bless a college student through this good group, and have been in touch with the student by email and intercession. We ourselves hope to directly help college students in Asia, and plan to go very soon as a family to serve. Our hearts Are as theirs.

I have been associated with Blessing Hands in various capacities (former Board member, volunteer, donor) for 5+ years. It is clear by its mission statement that it serves a humanitarian need. It is very hard for me to pick which of my roles has been most rewarding but I think the role of a volunteer has made the biggest impact on my own personal life. I was fortunate to be able to travel to China last year with Blessing Hands. While there I was able to teach health related classes. What a joy and a pleasure to be part of that experience and to see first hand how the lives of hundreds of children and their families are so positively affected by the work of Blessing Hands.

It was such a pleasure to assist Betty and her staff in Guang Xi Provence when they were there looking for candidates to receive her high school tuition scholarships. Over the past 4 years here in China I have tracked the lives of several or these students that came from peasant Farm families and would have ended up on the farms doing stoop labor the rest of their lives. One is ready to graduate college now in the top of her class and another is in his second year studying to be a border patrolman. They are so bright and this opportunity has changed their lives in ways that can only be measured in reduced life struggles for them. I love the work and efforts this program represents and the incredible changes it makes in the children's lives.
