Melanie Jarnagin served in Cuenca in 2008 and is now married with two children. She opened a Cake and Cupcake business in Texas and is generously donating a portion of her proceeds to OSSO.

Says Jarnagin, "I was in Cuenca in the summer of 2008, and I am forever thankful that I had the opportunity to be a part of this amazing organization. OSSO truly does so much good. You can see it in the faces and lives of the many children that they serve, as well as the volunteers that get to serve them. I know that I am a better person for being able to volunteer with OSSO and will never forget my experiences there."

We are grateful for Melanie's continued support of the children she loves in Ecuador!

Laura Lines volunteered with OSSO in 2005. She recently opened her new business, Once Upon a Rhyme (OUR) Play School

Laura shared, "It's my turn to give back by paying forward. I want to pay forward the generosity that was given to me through the charitable sponsors. And I want to give back to these orphanages that provided a growing experience for me many years ago. I learned to love orphan babies and children in a deeper way than I had ever experienced love for a child." 

OUR Play School & Extended Play will donate 5% of profits to Orphanage Support Services Organization (OSSO).  Click on the image to visit their website.

Savanna Allred, a recent OSSO alumni in Cuenca, has decided to use her new business to give back to the children who changed her life. 

Says Allred, "After serving the children living in the OSSO orphanage in Cuenca, Ecuador, I could not stop thinking about the angels I met there. Upon my return home I yearned to help in some way but simply could not find an efficient way to contribute. The least I could do to give back to the children who permanently changed my life was to create a community where everyone could easily help. This is the perfect way to easily make a difference. Tossd Salt Spray will donate $1 to the OSSO orphanage in Cuenca, Ecuador with every purchase." 

We are grateful for volunteers like Savanna who gave their heart to the children of Ecuador, and continue to find ways to serve from home.

Chelsea Hamblin is an OSSO alumni who is now married with two boys. She opened her etsy shop in November of 2014 and generously donates a portion of her proceeds to OSSO. 

When asked why she decided to donate to OSSO, she replied, "I started an Etsy shop November 2014 because I love sewing and I wanted to do something that allowed me to continue to stay home with my boys. I decided to donate 5% of my profits to OSSO shortly after opening my shop. Why OSSO? I was a volunteer in Cuenca, Ecuador at the beginning of 2008. I was able to see first hand the good that this organization does for the children. It is a great cause and I strongly believe in and support their efforts to help the children living orphanages. I wanted to do anything I could to give back because my personal experience with them was so great."

We are grateful for Chelsea's talents she uses to bless the children and orphanages.
