Update on the Matching Gift – Dec 30th

Dear VFC Family, you guys are so amazing.

You overwhelm me with your prayers and support. We are almost there in meeting the December Matching Grant. Our goal is to raise $7,500 so that it will be matched with an additional $7,500. To date we have raised $6,880! Do I hear an amen? We only need $620 more to meet the goal. Our donor has given us to midnight, Sunday, January 1st to match the Grant.

Can you help us? Will you help us?

Please pray and see what God will have you do. Every dollar helps.

Go to our Donate page and give via the PayPal link at the bottom or send us a check.  If you donate via check, please send an e-mail to tomorme [at] visionforchile.org advising us that a check is in the mail.

Thank you and God bless you! We pray that you will have a blessed 2012!


Matching Gift Update – 12/24/11

VFC Family,

I wanted to give you an up to date status on our present Matching Grant of $7,500. Over the past 10 days we have received pledges and donations totaling $5,580. Praise God ! So, we “ must “ receive an additional $1,920 on or before December 31st, 2011 in order to receive the first $7,500.

I praise God for the entire VFC family that He has provided. Your prayers and financial support have been overwhelming. Thank you ! Can you please help us meet our goal. Every dollar counts. Please send your support today via PayPal or check. If you send a check, please drop me a note stating the money is on its way. This too counts against the goal.

I pray that you do have a God Honoring, Blessed Christmas. God bless you and your families.

MATCHING GIFT – Would you consider a gift as well?

Dear VFC Family,

I pray that you are enjoying the holidays. Please keep in mind that the reason for the season is to celebrate the birth our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We have just been given an opportunity that I feel compelled to share with you. An anonymous giver has just contacted me and offered to donate $7,500.00 to Vision for Chile on the condition that we obtain matching donations. This is great news ! Unfortunately we only have until December 31st, 2011 to match the $7,500.00 donation. Can you help us out ? I know that it is Christmas time and money is tight. It is tight in the Orme home. But we need your help ! You can donate via PayPal by clicking here.

If every family could donate $75.00 or more we could have over $15,000. by January 1st, 2012.

I know that we have come to you several times this past year and you have responded. Praise God ! Please pray about this and do what God is calling you to do. Thank you so much for supporting Vision for Chile / House of Hope. Remember your gifts are helping to charge the lives of our girls. The girls of both the Hogar and House of Hope say thank you !

Hey everyone,

It is SO exciting to watch God at work and see how He meets our needs. Well, He answered our prayers and met our needs. We received in pledges and donations a total of $25,590 towards the $25,000 matching gift. Wow ! I have been overwhelmed by God’s goodness and peace throughout this fundraising effort. We prayed and He answered those prayers. On behalf of Vision for Chile / House of Hope, we are so grateful to our prayer partners and supporters. We thank you for your sacrifice. I think the girls of the House of Hope say thank you better than I do. Please watch the video they’ve sent below. God bless!

Matching Gift Update – 06/14/11









As of Monday, June 13th, our total cash and commitments to giving total $21,050 towards the $25,000 Matching Gift.  We have until June 20th to reach the match. We need your help to push through, not only this matching gift goal, but also through this time of financial crisis for the House of Hope. What can you do to help us exceed even this $25,000 goal?  The need is great, but our Mighty God is greater!!!  We’re not in the business of setting limits for Him!
