Over the last year the Foundation has gone international and is now affiliated with helping the Ramini Kids Foundation which cares for and supports over 125 orphans in Indonesia.  Through Edie’s efforts she was able to engage Alabama teacher Barbara Neel at Valley Head High School who created a project for her sewing class. They made dresses, pillow cases, and other clothing that was sent to Indonesia for those orphans.
