UPDATE: Hannah & Faye raised a total of 26,800 RMB for Hopeful Hearts! With your help, baby Zhang, who was transferred to a Guangzhou hospital at only 11 days old, was able to have life-saving heart surgery. Thank you!!
With your help, the girls raised enough to fund a surgery for baby Zhang, whose young parents could not otherwise afford it. Thank you to everyone who helped, contributed, and to those who ran!!!
Our names are Faye Rubin and Hannah Allen. We are working with an organization called Hopeful Hearts in China that raises money for kids who need heart surgery but don't have enough money. We chose this charity because Faye's sister Sonia was born with a heart defect and only lived for four months.
Fortunately, through surgeries, Faye's family had the chance to get to know Sonia. We know that there are kids just like Sonia but their families can't afford the expenses, and we want to help them.
In addition to this fundraising page, we are organizing a fun run here in Guangzhou, China to raise money and awareness in the local community.
It takes $5,000 to help one kid. Please make a donation to help us reach our goal and save a life.
