Programs: Angel covers (ac) is a volunteer run organization dedicated to caring for orphaned and destitute children around the world. Angel covers believes that every child is invaluable and deserves to have their basic nutrition, housing, medical and educational needs met so they can grow into their potential. Breaking the cycle of poverty and empowering children to become self-sufficient adults is our goal. Our administrative costs are less than 6% and we have provided thousands of volunteer hours through the committed efforts of more than 35 volunteers. Directors in charge of monitoring and overseeing programs work more than 40 hours a week to ensure the best possible programs for the children we serve. Every dollar donated to angel covers is used to provide program services to orphans and children. More than 200 children in china and kenya are sponsored and receive education, meals, shelter, and medical care. Another 1,500 children have received ongoing support from angel covers in the form of blankets, meals, basic medical care, and school supplies in our 13 year history. For example, the humble hearts school in nairobi, kenya, with more than 200 children, received funds for teachers salaries, text books, and school supplies. Thoughout 2014, individuals accress the country donated to benefit orphan schools. Toys, blankets, vitamins, and school supplies were collected and will be sent to kenya in 2014. Thanks to blanket sales through our website and additional 48 blankets were donated to orphanages in china; as were dozens of yo-yo's. Angel covers work with orphaned and destitute children in kenya is extensive. In2014, angel covers continued to extensively support the humble hearts school forthe deaf. With approximately 200 students attending humble hearts, the schoolalso provides housing to any student in need. The dedication of the teachers isseen every day. Teachers frequently stay for several hours past the end of theschool day in order to tutor students, create lesson plans, or lead after schoolclubs. Children continue to receive a quality education as demonstrated byincreased test scores, low teacher turnover, and consistent attendance. Extensiveconstruction has been done on the school to correct drainage concerns and repairthe roof that had previous water damage. In 2014, ereaders were introduced to the secondary students at humble hearts, providing them with a library in their hands of more than 200 textbooks and story books. Of the approximately 200 students attending humble hearts in 2014, 180 current live at humble hearts also, providing them a boarding school complete with tutoring and three nutritious meals a day. Because of the boarding possibilities, the number of deaf students living at humble hearts/angel cottage continues to increase. Humble hearts continues to have a reputation throughout kenya as one of the top schools for the deaf, and families arrive weekly from hours away hoping to enroll their children. Now, deaf children who would not otherwise receive an education are attending school, have guaranteed meals each day, and are learning they have unlimited potential. Work continues at humble hearts to develop on-going income generating projects. In 2014, four acres of land continued to be leased and farmed. Corn and beanswere grown, which produced more than a four month supply of corn, beans and cornflour for the school. Chickens continue to be raised and provide meat and incometo the schools meal program. In china at the huaibei swi, more than 40 infants receive formula, tailored to their age and needs, on a monthly basis. Because medically fragile infants need specialized care, angel covers continues a foster care program in huaibei, anhui. Two toddlers were in loving foster homes in 201 and received the individualized care they need and deserve. Additionally, these toddlers were adopted together by an american family, allowing them to be siblings forever. In the autonomous tibetan prefectures, angel covers is involved with severalorphanages and poor rural schools. Seventy-six high school and college age girlsattended school in 2014 thanks to our mamas wish and new, kangding programs and the generosity of sponsors. Because of these programs, girls have a chance to break the cycle of poverty, avoid arranged marriages, and develop skills for independent living. Yaks were purchased again in 2014 and continue to provide milk and butter on a weekly basis to many of the girls in the mamas wish program, as well as numerousother rural schools. The angel covers education director and her daughter spenttwo weeks in china with the mamas wish students gathering reports and purchasingyaks, as well as exploring possibilities for new programs. A small grass-roots organization, angel covers made a positive impact in the livesof more than 500 children in 2014. Children around the world now have beds to sleep in, toys to play with, medical care, and most of allhope for future

Angel Covers is so faithful to keep its donors and volunteers frequently updated thru photos, blogs, and Face Book. When a project is under way, photos are posted as progress is made. I really appreciate that Angel Covers regularly visits the schools and orphans it supports. It assures that the funds and items I contribute are used as promised. I also like the fact when I send items to a child a photo of the child with the items is sent. There are not too many organizations that accomplishes what Angel Covers does with a total volunteer staff.

Angel Covers does amazing work with orphaned and disadvantaged children. They tirelessly support a school for the deaf in Kenya, and have built wonderful dormitories and classrooms for the children there. I am proud that the names of my daughter and I are on cement blocks in one of the school rooms as donors. The people at Angel Covers are truly dedicated and also excel at keeping their supporters up to date with detailed information on their various projects.

I have known Kari, one of the two founding members, for years. I saw this organization from almost the very beginning. I was so impressed with her dedication to help children, how much she gave of herself and how she was able to rally friends and volunteers from all over the world! I have fond memories of makng blankets in her family room, watching phone calls come in, and volunteers stop by. When Kari heard about a need, her response was to figure out a way to meet that need. I moved from Colorado several years ago and keep up with Angel Covers through the informative newsletter. Now Angel Covers is in multiple countries accomplishing so much! They truly make a difference in the lives of so many children.

Whilst living in HK I ran TaG drama workshops for children and wanted to donate all those proceeds to charity - I spent many hours searching the web for a child related charity that would be able to make a difference in Asia. Angel Covers has achieved outstanding results in improving the quality of life for children in Orphanages in many parts of the world - their efforts are tireless and sincere and I am very grateful for the updates and photos which Kari Fillimore is able to send out to keep supporters informed - Humble Hearts is an incredibly moving accomplishment as is the Mamas' Wish Campaign - I feel privileged to have been able to be a part of Angel Cover's achievements and when I explained to my students' parents before the end of year presentations where their fees were going I know it made them feel good that they could combine their kid's love of drama with giving something back.....

Through Angel Covers my family sponsors a young woman in China so that she may attend high school and open up more opportunities for her future. We are currently in our second year of sponsorship. Angel Covers regularly sends us updates and photos of our sponsored child which we all look forward to, especially our two daughters who were born in China and adopted as infants. In addition to the ongoing sponsorship we have purchased donation gifts through Angel Covers for such events as weddings and birthdays. Angel Covers allows even those with very limited resources to be able to contribute in a meaningful way and make a difference in someone's life. It remains one of our favorite charities and we recommend them every chance we get!
