ChildFund’s roots are in China, where we were founded in 1938 to help Chinese orphans after the Japanese invasion of their country. Today, Feb. 19, is the Chinese New Year, and 2015 is the Year of the Sheep.

We figured it was a nice time to remind ChildFund supporters that you can help make a difference in a child’s life by donating a sheep (or two). Families who receive a sheep gain a source of milk and the possibility of increasing their income by selling wool and lambs. Thanks for considering the gift of a sheep, and gong xi fa cai!
