Message From LightInThebox:
In the last few years, LightInTheBox has donated to help the relief of the Hunan Floods and the Wenchuan Earthquake & Snow Storm. As always, at LightInTheBox, we believe in corporate social responsibility, and we like to help where there are needs.
In December of 2011, Little Flower Projects came to us and we were touched by their cause. In China, sick and impoverished infants are still being abandoned in many places, and Little Flower Projects is doing great work giving good homes to countless unfortunate children. The more children and babies they look after, the more space and facilities they need, so please join us in giving support to Little Flower Projects.

What is Little Flower Projects?
Little Flower Projects is an outreach program of China Little Flower, Inc -- a 501c(3) nonprofit organization registered in the USA. Since 1995, these very effective, grassroots, small-scale, cost-efficient projects in China have helped countless children in need. They focus on providing specialized care to abandoned infants and nurturing the growth and education of older disabled orphans. Our work in China began with a home for handicapped orphans in the eastern province of Shandong in 1998. Since that time, we have expanded our work to other areas of north China.
In everything we do, our goal is to work alongside local staff, empowering them with the knowledge and experience necessary to continue and expand the work on their own all over China.
All administrative and financial management is done by volunteers or paid for by donations specifically to those costs. Therefore, 100% of donations are going directly to the needs of the children.
Little Flower Projects Include:
1. Hospice care for orphans
2. Group educational foster care
3. Special Care for infants
4. Long-term care for severely disabled children
5. Special causes
Hospice: In our hospice program we provide comfort, love, and care to orphaned children who are dying. Although it is difficult to watch little ones suffer and die, we consider it a privilege to be able to care for these children and to fill their short lives with love and happiness.
Group Educational Foster Homes: These homes allow physically disabled school-age orphans to live in a supportive family environment while attending school and acquiring life skills that will allow them to one day live independently. We accept children with a wide range of physical disabilities including spina bifida, cerebral palsy, limb deformities, speech difficulties, deafness and visual impairment.
Special Care for Infants: Our infant homes provide intensive care to abandoned babies with complex medical needs. We focus on caring for premature babies, those with club feet, and babies with birth defects or illness requiring skilled nursing care. These babies stay with us until they are strong enough to join families of their own.
Long Term Care: In this program we care for older disabled orphans with severe mental and physical impairment. These are children who have no hope of ever being adopted or living independently as adults. This work is not for the faint-hearted and the rewards are subtle - but in some ways that is what makes this work the most profoundly human. These kids teach us so much about love!
Special Causes: We are often approached for help in special situations. These are orphans, children at high risk of abandonment or impoverished families with a particular financial need. Special causes include requests for life saving surgery, school tuition, and foster care for children with pending adoptions etc. These kinds of needs - and many others – often cross our path.
