ARBONNE Is Supporting Hopscotch Adoptions’

Special Needs Grant Fund

For a limited time, Sandie Buscarino, a former Hopscotch Adoptions client, is sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit Hopscotch Adoptions Special Needs Grants.   These grants help offset expenses related to the adoption of children with non-correctable needs.   Sandie is an adoptive parent of an Armenian angel (ok, he’s a little boy so only 90% angel!) who had a correctable special need (cleft lip/palate).  Sandie understands the emotional and financial obstacles adoptive parents face when considering adopting a child with special needs.  These children often become Waiting Children and Hopscotch is devoted to doing all they can to assist parents in finding them their forever families. 

Sandie shared "As a way of thanking them for helping us navigate a long and winding journey to complete our family, Sandie has pledged to donate 75% of the proceeds of Arbonne sales placed through 9/30/15 to Hopscotch Adoptions’ Special Needs Grants."

If you are not familiar with Arbonne, Sandie would like you to know "Arbonne is a botanically based, environmentally friendly products line of skincare, makeup and nutrition, to nurture your body inside and out.  Arbonne products are formulated to be highly effective, without harmful chemicals or artificial ingredients."

Taking care of yourself, helps waiting children into permanent families that otherwise would not have a family.

Advocating for Orphaned Children

Dear Families;

Below is a letter from Alexander (Sasha) D’Jamoos, an advocate for orphans. He asks for all of our assistance in helping the Russian government understand the importance of adoption. Please read his words below and consider helping.


Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Alexander (Sasha) D’Jamoos. I was adopted from Russia 5 years ago. Today, I am a student at the University of Texas studying Government and Russian Studies. I have been advocating for orphaned children.

Last January, we created a Facebook page, "Orphans Without Borders". The purpose of the page is to support adoption by sharing wonderful stories of families and their adopted children from around the globe. This page is very important in that it actually reaches the audiences in Russia who may otherwise not be familiar with the joy and happiness that adoption brings to children.

I need more stories in order to continue supporting the children and American families who cannot complete their adoptions in Russia due to the adoption ban. All that is required is a family photo with a small story attached OR a picture of an individual holding a sign "Orphans Without Borders".

I sincerely hope that you can spread this among the families around the globe! Please, support this important mission and ask everyone to send the stories to me at alexshulchev@yahoo.com.

Thank you!

Grandmother’s Smile Project for Bulgarian Orphanages Makes a Big Impact on Little Lives

Vesta, along with your help, is initiating a campaign in support of long term implementation of Bulgaria’s “A Grandmother’s Love Project,” to ensure its sustainability for a period of one to three years. We need your help in sustaining this project. The impact on a child’s well being and development is significantly improved when a child receives this individualized attention from a “Grandmother”.
