To all of our DOI family and other caring individuals:
DOI has been holding out hope for the opportunity to have our annual auction fundraiser. At this time we regret to announce that we just do not see it being practical to proceed with the event.
This does leave us in a bit of a pinch, however. WE rely on our auction to fill the financial void of $25,000 annually we are spending but not receiving through monthly and other contributions.
Additionally, we have lost over10K annualized in monthly contributions in part due to COVID and related hardships. DOI needs your help!
DOI has continued to meet our minimum obligations to ensure the wellbeing of all of our children. We have not taken on any new projects or expenditures to ensure that we can meet these obligations.
Moving forward, we need to increase our monthly sponsorship levels and replace this year’s mission auction proceeds if we are going to continue to be able to care for these children in need. If you are already giving monthly, THANK YOU! If you are not giving monthly and have some ability to do so please contact Cassie Lupien, [email protected], or (360) 929-1692.
We are asking everyone that we can reach to contribute to this worthy cause. The children of DOI need your help and we thank you in advance for meeting this need. 100% of all donated funds will reach the children directly and your donations are tax-deductible.
We sincerely thank you,
Displaced Orphans Board of Directors
