The Story

After numerous missionary trips to Honduras, Rev. William Vazquez came home to New Jersey inspired to create a safe-haven for the many abandoned, abused, and poverty stricken children he encountered. In 2003, construction started for My Little Lambs Orphanage near the city of Siguatepeque, Honduras. The first seven children arrived in 2009 and since then an additional 10 have joined them.

The children of My Little Lambs - Maria Elena, Javier, Carlos, Myra, Kenia, Josue, Zoila, Zulman, Jerry, Ever, Julissa, Silvia, Sergio, Christian, Jorge, Yoner, and Esther - have suffered greatly in their short lives. The orphanage, which operates solely on the generosity of others, has saved the children from physical and sexual abuse, extreme poverty and the dangers of prostitution and gang life. Many of the children arrived at the safe haven barely dressed, without shoes or even underwear. Each child has their own tragic story. We are thankful for the opportunity to create a new, more positive chapter in the story of their filled with love, safety and nourishment of their mind, bodies and souls.

Emotionally touched by the tragic stories of each of these children, we were inspired to begin small fundraising efforts for the orphanage. As the needs of the orphanage continue to grow, as do our fundraising efforts. Our 4th Annual Red Party will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2015 at the Southampton Room, from 7PM – 11PM. We hope you might join us for a night of fun in honor of the kids. But if you can't....

Drum roll please!!!

I'm ABSOLUTELY THRILLED to announce that the 4th Annual Red Party in honor of My Little Lambs Orphanage raised over $22,300 for the children of My Little Lambs Orphanage!!

As Sam and I drove home last night, I said to him (as I often do), that I believe if you give people the opportunity to share love...if you give them something to care about...if you create the opportunity for them to share their treasure for a great cause...they do...AND YOU DID!

I am completely OVERWHELMED by the love all of you have shared over the last few months. If you would like to give and haven't had a chance to, donate below. I'm hoping we are lucky enough to have a few more donations come in post party as they did last it's not too late! EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!

On behalf of Maria Elena, Javier, Carlos, Myra, Kenia, Josue, Zoila, Zulman, Jerry, Ever, Julissa, Silvia, Sergio, Christian, Jorge, Yoner, and Esther....THANK YOU for your LOVE and for NOT FORGETTING the children of My Little Lambs Orphanage!

People ask why I'm so passionate about raising money for the kids of My Little Lambs. Well...I donate my time and treasure because I'm thankful for the many blessings in my life.

When people share what they are thankful for they often start with their family, food on the table, a place to call home....

Imagine a 6 year old with NONE OF THE ABOVE. Better yet, a 6 year old abandoned in a city to care for his 2 younger siblings.

This is my "why". Because I have SO much to be thankful for and because there are children relying on us for their most basic necessities. We must ensure the world doesn't fail these children again.

So as you consider all that you are thankful for today...remember those who need our help.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my family friends and thank you for all that you've done (and continue to do) for the "Little Lambs". ??????
