Every year, the Whispers from Children’s Hearts Foundation puts on a star-studded Annual Legacy Gala Fundraising Event; that donates to charities who are making a difference in the world and in the legacy of the lives they touch. Check out some of our past Legacy Gala award recipients and learn more about the wonderful nonprofit organizations they represent!
On behalf of the WFCH Legacy Gala team, I want to thank you for your contribution to helping to make the Whispers From Children’s Hearts Legacy Gala a huge success!
I started WFCH – because I had just finished traveling to fifteen orphanages over a five-year span. When I came back to the states and had a daughter, I couldn’t continue doing mission trips so I created a foundation so that other people who wanted to give back to children could get recognition and see money to get their non-profit going.
It has been my mission/dream to produce this Gala so that the true angels on this planet could be honored. People who are doing good work that no one knows about because they aren’t famous. The Gala offers publicity, recognition and celebration.
With gratitude and appreciation,
Lisa Haisha, Founder
