It’s all about Attitude and Heart

by Dale and Cyndi (Project Eden)

“Cyndi and I want to thank Captivating for the monthly support that comes into the bank account and the HUGE amount of work that goes into this. Funds don’t just appear! It takes incredible sweat and dedication.”

“Though we are truly thankful for all this, it’s not all that’s on our mind. What we would really like to express our thanks for, on behalf of all of us at Eden is, the ‘attitude and heart’ of the Captivating team. They are always only a call away and no matter how busy, will promptly and graciously listen to and respond to our needs. Captivating, to Eden, is about a lot more than just money. They are our friends and have lent a caring ear to our frustrations and difficulties over the years. This is what makes the difference. Mere funding can leave one feeling as cold as an ole metal ATM. But when the help comes from the heart, it makes all the difference.”

“Thank you to one and all of the Captivating team who is in this for the right reasons and doing it from the heart. We love you! Dale and Cyndi.”

Eden currently have 12 girls; living, learning and growing into young ladies with education, skills and a bright future. Thank you Dale and Cyndi for working tirelessly to provide a home and opportunities that give these girls hope.
