The United Nations recognizes “The International Day of Nowruz” as a celebration of spring. Numerous cultures worldwide have been celebrating the holiday for over 3,000 years. Every year Child Foundation hosts a Nowruz Fundraiser, so that donors can give a “new year’s gift” to the many children supported in Iran. To donate, visit Child Foundation’s website at www.childfoundation.org/donate
Child Foundation has been helping Children since 1994, facing head on the struggles related to supporting children and education in Iran. All donations are US tax deductible and comply with US sanction laws. In August 2012, Child Foundation led the efforts to help rebuild the Tabriz region after two earthquakes struck, killing hundreds and forcing thousands to become homeless. With the help of a worldwide network of supporters, Child Foundation raised nearly $300,000, providing food and shelter to those in need. Many children in this region became separated from their parents and required monthly support to survive; the Child Foundation sponsors stepped forward and helped these children during their greatest time of need. To become a monthly sponsor for only $1 a day, visit www.childfoundation.org/sponsor
