I have been in awe of the amount of time and passion that drives the founders and members of this incredible organization. Always the children and people of Malawi are put first. The desire to educate and provide healthcare, and most of all, to empower the most vulnerable, is a fresh, selfless approach to a not-for-profit. I have heard about the truly life changing experiences students (both young and old) have when they go on a trip. This is an amazing organization.
I started running a couple years ago and joined Team Littlefield. We are a group of runners that raise money for the orphanage, by putting on road races and get donors to sponser us in different races around.
Last year 14 of us raised over $1800.00 each through many ways and as a team. Then went to New Orleans and ran a half, and some of us a full marathon. I believe we almost fed 80 orphans for a year with the amount of money we raised.
Our goal this year has been to raise $40,000.00 as a team and I believe we are going to make it. Myself again and another large group will be embarking to Nashville this week to support team littlefield in yet another half and full marathon.
Janet Littlefield and her husband Bill are wonderful people and have the children in Malawi in there best interest. They very much care, teach,feed, and love these wonderful kids as if they were there own.
My support will be never ending, in many different ways, for this organization and the wonderful people involved.
We have been investing through contributions to this venture for over seven years.
We have seen and met the volunteers, students and a couple of the orphans. the Littlefield home has raised the level of the quality of life of these orphans to levels I don't think they thoguht they could achieve.
We have also seen unbelievable growth of the voluteer who have journeyed to Malawi and comd back with quotes such as life changing experience.
This shows people can reach to higher peaks than they ever dreamed of attaining.
The organization has to brag more about what they have achieved and where they want to go at the next level.
