Allow me to introduce a woman who makes a difference. Betty Cutts (Founder and President of Blessing Hands http://www.blessing-hands.org/) has recently received an award from the Provincial Government of Guangxi Province for her humanitarian work with the students of Yangshuo and Qinzhou, China. This was a great honor, since the award had never before been given to a foreigner.
Betty Cutts is from Kentucky USA and has been blogging since 2005. In her profile on her "Blessing Hands" blog http://blessinghands.blogspot.com/ , Betty wrote:
"I am a mother and housewife that loves China and children. The two interests have come together in serving the children of China who need help with educational needs. I started as a teacher in an English summer camp and got to know the teachers first. When I toured their schools and met their precious students, I could see many needs and decided to try to help. I first started a fund to assist children with tuition, but it has expanded into a 501(c)(3)public charity granting money for textbooks and school supplies for primary school and lower middle school students and tuition for older students. When students reach 15 the Chinese government tuition help stops, so Blessing Hands grants tuition help for higher middle school students."
Power to you, Betty Cutts!
