Supporting Helping HOW

So a few weeks ago, we were decluttering around the house and there were just a ton of stuff we wanted to let go. Most were toys that my kids have outgrown and a stroller. So remembering Helping HOW, that is also supporting an orphanage in Go Vap District, I decided to contact it’s co-founder, Hillary Brown.

We are happy that our stuff found new kids to play with.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the kids will be happy to see us too!

  1. I live in Florida, but have been in Saigon, oooppps Ho Chi Minh City. Have just published a book The Bamboo Bends, by A.Cavanaugh Johnson about Vietnam in 1975, just after the US troop pullout. It isn’t political, just some memoirs etc. of a man who lived there. If you ever need any info from this part of the world contact me. I enjoy your Blog and am an avid reader. April Johnson
