Our mission is to send the "tangible" love of Jesus Christ to his orphaned children throughout the world in the form of a blanket or bear.
Our vision is to send that warm and cuddly feeling of love through blankets and bears to orphanages in Africa, then Asia and eventually to all third world countries.

What in the world are we doing in Nicaragua?
Today was actually our free day in Nicaragua. We went to market and got a few things. They are really big on pottery, hammocks, and jewelry. After market we really sat down and discussed why we are here. Wayne & Elaine's true mission is to give these kids hope. They have 2 schools that feed the children at the school. This country is so poor that they have heard many stories that the meal they serve at the school is the only meal some of these kids receive. When it comes to poverty at this level these children grow into adults who know that they really don't even matter, it is just about getting money to eat. We are here to love these children, to smile at them, hug them, play with them and for a lot of them, give them something small like a bear, candy necklace, bouncy ball or match box car. Yesterday, we went to Salinas to another school. After games and singing the children would just walk up behind you and touch you just to be touched. We are here to touch these children.
