Giving Tree

The season of giving is upon us!

OSSO has continued their tradition of a Giving Tree for the holiday season! This is the second year that OSSO has had their virtual Giving Tree available online. If you are looking for a way to donate, it could not be more simple! Just choose an ornament!


Our Giving Tree is a fun way for those to see what their donation will bring to the orphans in Ecuador and Thailand. Wondering what your donation will cover?:

  • $5- Fresh fruit for every child in an orphanage of 80 children for a day.
  • $15- A field trip to the park with 15 children.
  • $20- A custom brace for a handicapped child.
  • $40- A Christmas feast for an orphanage of 25 children.
  • $100- School fees for 5 children.

Consider joining us this holiday season by donating a few dollars to help children meet their basic needs.

From OSSO alumna, Katie Eberhard:

"I've been around OSSO a couple times around Christmas, and I was blessed to spend Christmas day there in 2015 as well. Christmas is naturally a special time of year, but being with those incredible kids made it even more beautiful. We spent weeks thinking about and gathering Christmas presents. Hours were spent wrapping gifts and stuffing stockings. The work was worth it; the planning the preparation, more than paid off. On Christmas Eve we went from casa to casa singing carols to the kids and to the workers. Several of the children joined us as we sang. With excited hearts and light in their eyes we sent them to bed. In the morning wonder of wonders, Santa had come in the night! We ate a delicious breakfast and crowded into Girasol. I don't know that I have ever seen such delight as I did on the faces around me. Gifts were opened amid wide smiles. Everyone was so grateful for their gifts, even though some of them may have seemed meager int he sight of others. I was humbled beyond measure. The rest of the day was spent in the normal routine and happy playing with the gifts  received."
