In 2006, a group of parents and children decided to make Christmas gift giving more meaningful. With simplified Christmas celebrations, the families used the money they would have spent on gifts to adopt a Vietnamese grade school, and launched a program to provide breakfast to school children everyday of the year. For some or those children, that may have been their only full meal of the day.
Seeing how little it takes our our part to make a big difference in the lives of others, Christmas for Breakfast was officially formed. We contribute and raise funds in order to provide vital nutritional assistance to ill, disadvantaged, and disabled women and children. In sharing our blessings, we hope to ease their suffering and brighten their future.
We collaborate with Bridging Hope, a Colorado based 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Bridging Hope administers the donations we receive and distributes grants to eligible programs. Sister Sen, Bridging Hope's CEO, frequently visits the centers to ensure the proper use of funds. Your donation is thereby managed wisely and effectively to provide nourishments to Vietnam’s most vulnerable children, women, and the elderly.
