A precious little email exchange about the Special Care Nursery at the Half the Sky China Care Home.  It says a lot about what we do and how we do it.

Dear Micheal, Joe,

What absolutely fabulous news, how incredibly good to hear!  Thank you!!

cchome4Would you please, on behalf of all of us at Half the Sky, pass on our love and thanks to all Hairy Crabs.

We will prepare something lovely from the China Care Home to send you with some pictures and reports about the children so that you can share with all.

Of course an official receipt will also be provided from Hong Kong.

Thank you once again, please know that many little children are right now cuddled within loving arms as they recover from life-saving surgeries … with dear thanks to you.

warmest regards to you and yours for the holidays,

cccheckups4Oh boy, this is just SPECTACULAR! Michael and Joe, we just can’t thank you enough for all you are doing to help these babies. In a year when our efforts to keep our programs afloat have been precarious at best, the Hairy Crabs are a ray of bright, happy light. Thank you so very much.

Happy Holidays!

Hi Jenny,

hairy crab plaqueThis money came from funds raised at an annual golf tournament—The Hairy Crab Invitational. (

Lots of beer needed to be drunk by lots of people in order to raise these funds, and I am happy to say that, among many others,  I pulled my weight in this endeavor.

You and your organization are doing great work and it is our pleasure to help.

We look forward to having our logo attached to the hospital project in Beijing and to working with you in the future.
