I recently found this amazing blog called, Miss-elaini-ous that was started by a young girl name Elaini. The whole purpose of the blog is to raise funds for orphans and widows in developing nations. Her story is beautiful and incredibly unique. She is nearing the 3rd anniversary of the start this project and has about 12,000 left to raise to get to her $100K goal. 100% of the funds go directly to orphans and widows in India through an organization called, Warm Blankets Orphan Care. If you’re looking for a way to make a difference in other parts of the world through a great cause check out her blog at this link and find out how you can donate or support in prayer. Below is a small part of her story from the blog.

“I started this blog to raise money for orphans in India by styling the same dress for 100 days, but in the process I fell in love with “my” kiddos and just can’t stop. It’s a crazy story, but you can read more here
