House with Heart, Inc. © 2016
Namaste, and thanks for coming to my 2018 party!
Once again, I’m asking friends & family to donate to House with Heart in celebration of my b’Earthday on the 28th of January. Many of you know, in years past I have encouraged a $28 donation to honor my turning 28 on the 28th. And that, of course is still an option if you’re in favor of continuing the charade of my turning 28 every year.
This year, in the name of truthtelling, I’m offering another option based on my true age. This year I turn 62 years old and so offer you an opportunity to donate $62. This option will not only help children, it will serve to keep me honest.
And this year, all donations will be earmarked to support the education tuition costs that we incur for our 27 children and also for another 15+ children outside our home who would otherwise be unable to attend school.

She took them in, started House with Heart (then known as Ghar Sita Mutu), and now today, we are on our second generation of children. We currently have 27 children in our home.
From the moment Beverly opened House with Heart’s doors, she understood that in addition to providing a loving and safe home environment for the children who come under her guardianship under desperate circumstances, the key to turning their lives around for the long-
For you first-
