Your Legacy

The Oxford Dictionary defines the word ‘blessing’ as ‘a benefit for which one is grateful’. Most of us give and receive many blessings throughout our lives. But it seems to us, that the act of extending one’s love and generosity beyond our own mortal lifetimes to a motherless child halfway around the world is the most noble of blessings. This legacy gift is the purest generosity – the ultimate kindness.
