THROUGHOUT 2017, INDIVIDUALS ACROSS THE COUNTRY DONATED TO BENEFIT ORPHAN SCHOOLS. TOYS, BLANKETS, VITAMINS, AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES WERE COLLECTED AND WILL BE SENT TO KENYA IN 2017. THANKS TO BLANKET SALES THROUGH OUR WEBSITE AND IN-KIND DONATIONS, AND ADDITIONAL 98 BLANKETS WERE DONATED TO ORPHANAGES IN CHINA. ANGEL COVERS WORK WITH ORPHANED AND DESTITUTE CHILDREN IN KENYA IS EXTENSIVE. IN 2017, ANGEL COVERS CONTINUED TO EXTENSIVELY SUPPORT THE HUMBLE HEARTS SCHOOL. THE DEDICATION OF THE TEACHERS IS SEEN EVERY DAY. TEACHERS FREQUENTLY STAY FOR SEVERAL HOURS PAST THE END OF THE SCHOOL DAY IN ORDER TO TUTOR STUDENTS, CREATE LESSON PLANS, OR LEAD AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS. CHILDREN CONTINUE TO RECEIVE A QUALITY EDUCATION AS DEMONSTRATED BY INCREASED TEST SCORES, LOW TEACHER TURNOVER, AND CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE. EXTENSIVE CONSTRUCTION HAS BEEN DONE ON THE SCHOOL.

In 2017, Humble Hearts CONTINUED TO BE RENOVATED, AND PERMANENT CONCRETE WALLS INSTALLED TO REPLACE THE PREVIOUS TIN SHEETS. EREADERS CONTINUE TO BE A VITAL PART OF PROVIDING QUALITY EDUCATION TO THE SECONDARY STUDENTS AT HUMBLE HEARTS, PROVIDING THEM WITH A "LIBRARY IN THEIR HANDS" OF MORE THAN 200 TEXTBOOKS AND STORY BOOKS. INCREASED TEST SCORES AND A GREATER DESIRE TO READ FOR FUN ARE ONLY SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF THIS PROGRAM. OF THE APPROXIMATELY 400 STUDENTS ATTENDING HUMBLE HEARTS IN 2017, 125 CURRENT LIVE AT HUMBLE HEARTS ALSO, PROVIDING THEM A BOARDING SCHOOL COMPLETE WITH TUTORING AND THREE NUTRITIOUS MEALS A DAY.

A LONG AWAITED TRIP TO HUMBLE HEARTS ALLOWED FOR THE DELIVERY OF THOUSANDS OF VITAMINS, SCHOOL SUPPLIES, FIRST AID ITEMS, AND TOYS. WITH TWO ADDITIONAL VOLUNTEERS, MORE THAN 300 POUNDS OF SUPPLIES WERE DELIVERED AND GIVEN TO THE CHILDREN. SOLAR LIGHTS WERE A HUGE HELP, ALLOWING FOR MUCH NEEDED LIGHT DURING BLACKOUTS OR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

BECAUSE OF THE BOARDING POSSIBILITIES, THE NUMBER OF DEAF STUDENTS LIVING AT HUMBLE HEARTS/ANGEL COTTAGE CONTINUES TO INCREASE. HUMBLE HEARTS CONTINUES TO HAVE A REPUTATION THROUGHOUT KENYA AS ONE OF THE TOP SCHOOLS FOR THE DEAF, AND FAMILIES ARRIVE WEEKLY FROM HOURS AWAY HOPING TO ENROLL THEIR CHILDREN. NOW, DEAF CHILDREN WHO WOULD NOT OTHERWISE RECEIVE AN EDUCATION ARE ATTENDING SCHOOL, HAVE GUARANTEED MEALS EACH DAY, AND ARE LEARNING THEY HAVE UNLIMITED POTENTIAL. WORK CONTINUES AT HUMBLE HEARTS TO DEVELOP ON-GOING INCOME GENERATING PROJECTS.

IN CHINA AT THE HUAIBEI SWI, MORE THAN 40 INFANTS AND TODDLERS RECEIVE VITAMINS SUPPLEMENTS IN THE FORM OF MULTI-VITAMINS AND CALCIUM EACH WEEK TO PROVIDE AN ADDED BOOST OF NUTRITION THEY MIGHT NOT OTHERWISE RECEIVE. FOSTER CARE IS A HUGE PART OF OUR PROGRAM IN HUAIBEI. THREE CHILDREN ARE LIVING IN LOVING FAMILIES, BEING CARED FOR KIND PARENTS WILLING TO TREAT THEM AS THEIR OWN.

IN THE AUTONOMOUS TIBETAN PREFECTURES, ANGEL COVERS IS INVOLVED WITH SEVERAL ORPHANAGES AND POOR RURAL SCHOOLS. THIRTY HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE AGE GIRLS ATTENDED SCHOOL IN 2017 THANKS TO KANGDING PROGRAM AND THE GENEROSITY OF SPONSORS. BECAUSE OF THESE PROGRAMS, GIRLS HAVE A CHANCE TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY, AVOID ARRANGED MARRIAGES, AND DEVELOP SKILLS FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING.

A SMALL GRASS-ROOTS ORGANIZATION, ANGEL COVERS MADE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN THE LIVES OF MORE THAN 500 CHILDREN IN 2017. CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD NOW HAVE BEDS TO SLEEP IN, TOYS TO PLAY WITH, MEDICAL CARE, AND MOST OF ALL…HOPE FOR FUTURE

When Angel Covers started back in 2002, it was born out of the need two moms had to do something - anything - to reach out to the tens of thousands of disadvantaged children in poverty-stricken areas of the world. While many people think about making a difference, these two friends took their casual conversations about changing the world and turned them into action. From there, they purchased fleece to make the first of thousands of Angel Cover blankets, and Squeaky Shoes soon followed. Since its inception, Angel Covers has evolved into a program that does much more than sell blankets and shoes to help thousands of children. Homes have been built, food has been provided, medical care is no longer out of reach, schools have been strengthened, and most importantly, hope has been provided to children around the world.

When Angel Covers began more than 15 years ago, we made the commitment to operate the foundation strictly through the use of volunteers. While this hasn't always been easy, everyone who works for Angel Covers believes that my taking a salary we would be taking food out of the mouths of children, education from strong minds, and blankets on cold nights. The ease at which we have found committed people to develop and run programs for Angel Covers, and more importantly for children around the world, is awe-inspiring.

Angel Covers believes that every child born has unlimited potential. Every child deserves to live a long, happy, safe life with his/her needs met, and loving people caring for him/her. As the Executive Director, I'm proud to say that Angel Covers has changed the world to a happier, healthier, and safer place for thousands of children around the world. Children feel valued because we refuse to follow social norms in Kenya that say deaf children are unable to learn. Infants in China have transitioned easily to loving forever families because they were physically and emotionally healthy when adopted. Teenage girls are better equipped to provide for their future families because they were given the opportunity to attend high school and college.

Your support of Angel Covers tells children around the world that they are valuable and that hope is alive. Please join me in seeing the potential in every child's life. Your donation will change a child forever.

Grateful every day,
Kari Fillmore
Executive Director

I have had the pleasure of serving on the Angel Covers Board since 2009. As a completely volunteer-run organization, I was immediately inspired by the passion, resourcefulness, and knowledge of those involved in Angel Covers' activities and their commitment to providing care and support to orphans and destitute children around the world.

In 2012, I had the opportunity to travel with Angel Covers' Executive Director to Kenya to see first-hand the programs we support in Nairobi: Humble Hearts School, providing education and housing for deaf and orphaned children; and Daghoretti School for underprivileged children. This experience illustrated for me the great work that this organization and those that support it accomplish: sponsorships for the housing and education needs of the children; donations providing much needed school books and supplies. It was amazing to meet the students and gain an understanding of their hard work and aspirations along with their teachers, staff and school administrators working to provide them the best opportunity possible. Similar Angel Covers' programs in China ensure girls have access to education, putting them on a path to self-sufficiency.

In 2012 Angel Covers celebrated its 10th Anniversary. As we move forward, the Board and Executive Director are working diligently to implement and refine the goals of our strategic plan to assist us in strengthening and ensuring focus on our four tenant areas: education, medical care, nutrition, and housing. We have developed new programs to meet children's needs, such as a Foster Care Sponsorship program which provides medically-fragile children in China the opportunity to recover in a loving, one-on-one environment. Through our donors and volunteers, the expertise and dedication of our Executive Director, and relationships with the in-country contacts, Angel Covers continues in its ability to respond to the ongoing and changing needs of the children we serve. Even though so much as been accomplished, we continue to look for new opportunities to increase our capacity to assist children around the world. We thank you for your continued support and involvement.

To Whom it may Concern:

Angel Covers is an amazing organization that believes every child is truly special and deserves access to food, shelter, medical needs, and education. Through the work of some very dedicated people who serve on the board of directors, they have created an organization that has very limited overhead. Thus almost all money raised goes into their mission of breaking the cycle of poverty and helping the children who are in most need. I have had the pleasure of witnessing the director's unselfish and tireless work to create a charity where almost 95% of any money raised goes back to serving the children. As a donor, I feel good knowing that my money is being put to good work. I am proud to donate to Angle Covers and will continue to do so for as long as they continue their amazing work.

With honor,
Sheila Thompson

Angel Covers is exactly what you would expect a non-profit to be. It is run completely with volunteers, working together to help underprivileged children in many countries. There are a variety of ways an interested donor can get involved, from monthly sponsorship in a variety of programs, to purchasing items from the online store, or participating in the annual auction for items donated from all around the world,

I have sponsored a child in the Humble Hearts program since the beginning. My first sponsored child has grown up, and my current child is thriving. I have seen the programs grow, and the number of dedicated sponsors increase. I have had the pleasure of volunteering for Anger Covers in a variety of ways through the years, and my role has changed depending on the amount of time I have to give. I have total faith in the program; it is the only organization to which I have donated monthly for years. I know that the money I send truly is being used for the child I sponsor.

I highly recommend Angel Covers. The people of Colorado would be proud to know that this great group is located here!

To whom it may concern:

I would like to take the time to recognize an organization that I
personally am close to. I have been involved with Angel Covers for around 8 years now. It all started when I was looking for somewhere to donate some gently used and some new toys. I called around to several places and no one wanted them. I was a bit in shock as I knew how much my own children loved them.

I came across Angel Covers and they told me about a school in Africa called Humble Hearts and how they would love the items. With just a few words I knew that not only did I want to send these stuffed animals and toys, but that I would be sending clothes and other items they needed.

A few weeks later to my surprise I received a photo of a bunch of smiling faces. It was the children at Humble hearts each holding an item I had sent. The small things I no longer needed made such a difference in their lives and it showed by how happy they all looked.

I continued to do this for a while and each time I was deeply touched by the photo I would receive.I decided at that time to sponsor a child. For just a small monthly amount you can not imagine the difference you can make in a child's life. I even received letters from the child Thank me for my support.
I started to volunteer for Angel Covers last year. I do it because I believe strongly in what they are doing. I have seen over the years what a difference they are making in the lives of children all over the world. So many children are benefiting from this organization and I hope they get the recognition they deserve.

Sincerely,
Tracey Goertz
