The Miracle Foundation has embraced the goals set by 189 nations through the United Nations to eradicate poverty and hunger, provide educational opportunities, promote gender equality, lower child mortality and promote maternal health.
Immaculate Conception Cathedral School alumna and founder of The Miracle Foundation Caroline Boudreaux speaks before a student assembly at ICCS about her organization.
Be a hero. Sponsor an orphan.
Not everybody can quit their job and start an organization and help orphans, but everybody could give $5, $10, or $100 a month. It costs about $100 a month to take care of everything they need, including college. –Caroline Boudreaux
These are the world’s children, and they belong to nobody. What if they belonged to everybody? How cool would that be? –Caroline Boudreaux
Puppets are great teaching tools for children. They help kids learn problem solving, how to communicate their feelings and basic skills for making friends. –Caroline Boudreaux
Our readers sent 5,433 finger puppets to The Miracle Foundation. The kids… love playing with your puppets. Thanks for putting your hearts into this project.
We’ve created a way for many orphanages affecting thousands of children to raise their standards of care.
Despite the hardship, the children were happy and enthusiastic. There was a sense of hope about the changes going on in their country. –Caroline Boudreaux
For more than ten years, The Miracle Foundation has been providing Indian children who are orphaned, on the street or without parents who can care for them with a loving home, nutritious food, quality education, medical care and that most important of things: love.
Boudreaux couldn’t stop thinking about Sheebani and the other Orissa orphans: “I was going to do something if it was the last thing I ever did. If I didn’t help them, nobody would.”
It took me about four years after meeting the orphans to figure out that it wasn’t adoptions that we wanted to do, it was taking care of children in an excellent way that launches them out of the cycle of poverty. –Caroline Boudreaux
[On service trips, you] always go with the intention of helping others, but you come back realizing how much they’ve really helped you and touched your life. –Ashley Haustein
It was incomprehensible to Boudreaux that children were living this way. She knew she had to do something to help and that she had to act soon.
I was struck by how little these orphans had externally, but how much spirit and radiance they had inside. They were truly a joy to be around.
If not me, who? If not now, when?
When American Airlines flight attendant Linda Feeney met Caroline Boudreaux on a flight from Delhi, India, to Chicago in 2006, she had no idea how much it would affect her life.
It was in that moment Boudreaux realized she had no choice but to find a way to do something to affect change in the lives of these lonely children.
We are fortunate to live in a city full of socially-responsible, global citizens who step up to the plate… –Caroline Boudreaux
There are needs everywhere. When you give abroad, if used wisely, it can save lives versus bettering them. It’s money well-spent.
Computers are a window to the world and they would help these children in a big way. Software to help children learn subjects such as English and mathematics have been installed. –Caroline Boudreaux
I am the proud owner of everything money can’t buy. I have peace, I have joy. I am fulfilled. –Caroline Boudreaux
I had never thought about orphans before, much less held them. They had nothing. And then I met Sheebani Das. When I had to put her to sleep on those wooden slats they called a bed, I broke down and knew I had to do something. She truly changed my life. –Caroline Boudreaux
