This is a beautiful video that made me want to cry. I wish that more people would give of their overabundance to help those in need. It's wonderful to see and hear Ashly's determination to make a better life for her family and herself. I pray she, and all the children, succeed at their great goals.

Needless to say, this video brought tears to my eyes. I'm so proud of the work you guys do and I'm happy to contribute somehow. Dear Ashly, you will grow up to become a beautiful and successful doctor.
