Can you imagine having no schools or hospitals? How about no crops or food? Sadly, this is real life for entire populations of people living in Africa. It is also the life many children are born into with little hope for the future. Lift The Children is trying to change all that. With 10,000 children in more than 80 orphanages, Lift The Children is an organization “dedicated to seeking out the world’s most destitute children and providing them with the necessities, training and inspiration they need to develop, grow, and become self-sufficient.” Recently, at the glamorous Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, guests and VIPs came out to support the society with a magical fundraising evening. Featuring a live auction, and live entertainment by comedian Jason Hewlett, the event raised more than $735,000 for the charity.
