Rosa Loves


Our friends at Rosa Loves just designed a shirt for The Preemptive Love Coalition and 60% of what you pay for it goes directly to help Hussein, an Iraqi child that needs 4,000 dollars to pay for his heart surgery. Rosa Loves has printed enough shirts to raise that amount and once we reach that goal, this shirt will be discontinued. Get one in time for Christmas and before the time to help Hussein runs out!

Get yours here.

Best Christmas Ever

It's been a while since I've told you about some of the children we've been able to help. Just yesterday we funded the heart surgeries for Wahaj, Havan and Elaf.

Wahaj's heart was so weak that he had been losing consciousness during cyanotic spells, which means that he could die at any moment. Thankfully the funding came in and he was able to be rushed to the ICU today where they were able to stabilize him as he waits for his turn to be operated on.


Elaf has a combination of heart defects and they're not sure if she'll need one or two surgeries but the good news is that the doctors said that the prognosis for Elaf's future after surgery is excellent!

Havan is in the most critical condition because he was born with tranposition of the great arteries. The cardiologist is hoping it's not too late to put them back in their proper places.


I'll keep you updated but also wanted to thank you if you played a role in helping fund these heart surgeries. We love you guys.

Scream Bloody Murder

They share a deep sorrow: an idealistic American who tried to protect the Kurds of Iraq, a Canadian general who refused to follow orders in Rwanda, a French priest who fought for the soul of Cambodia.

CNN's Christiane Amanpour traveled to the killing fields of Europe, Africa and Asia for "Scream Bloody Murder."

CNN's Christiane Amanpour traveled to the killing fields of Europe, Africa and Asia for "Scream Bloody Murder.

Each one tried to focus the world's attention on the world's most heinous crime: genocide. Each time, they were shunned, ignored or told it was someone else's problem.

To understand why, CNN's Christiane Amanpour traveled to the killing fields of Europe, Africa and Asia for a two-hour documentary, "Scream Bloody Murder."

CNN has been doing a fabulous job covering these stories. I'd encourage you to watch this.
