We are proud to announce our new, long term collaboration with Burma Border Projects.  Allowing Acorn Overseas to expand our support of migrant education in Mae Sot.   BREAKING NEWS!     We are proud to announce our new, long-term collaboration with Burma Border Projects.     Allowing Acorn Overseas to expand our support of migrant education in Mae Sot.     After many long meetings, overseas calls and much deliberation, we have decided to partner with and pledged our long-term support to this educational project, which supports over 150 children daily in their quest for education and for a chance to break away from their lives of hardship and into careers and brighter futures.  Overseeing this project on our behalf is Jo Swift, a Brit living and working full time out of Mae Sot, Thailand. We will be fundraising towards sustaining the growth and development of the New Wave Learning Centre, a school for children of Burmese migrant workers living in Thailand.  When I set up Acorn Overseas, its sole aim was to support people working in Mae Sot as it has touched my heart in many ways.  It is so wonderful now to be able to continue to support projects in Mae Sot in this way.

 Press Statement:      Children’s Author and adoptive father partners with international children’s aid charity.       Santa’s Wish is a new children’s Christmas story book, written by Samuel Langley-Swain, who is also an adoptive dad to two young children.      The story of Santa’s Wish is one of love, kindness and care at Christmas time and in the true spirit of the book Samuel has partnered with Acorn Overseas, an international charity which works with vulnerable and orphaned children in countries such as Thailand.     Santa’s Wish tells the story of a family who are visited by Father Christmas on Christmas Eve and he takes them to the North Pole and picks out their letter and a boy makes a wish about people not being lonely and sharing.     This partnership with Acorn Overseas aims to celebrate Christmas as the perfect time to inject a little bit of hope, magic and optimism at home and further afield. It will help support the on-going fundraising efforts of the charity, with half of the proceeds from every book sold through this special link going directly to the charity -   www.santaswish.co.uk/acornoverseas      Samuel was inspired to write the story after conversations with his own adopted children, who hadn’t always had the happiest of Christmas experiences in their early childhood.     “When I realised through my own children, how many vulnerable families spent Christmas without the warmth of Christmas and magic of Santa, I wanted to write a story that was uplifting and hopeful and encourage children to think of others, not just the presents they expect.”     Natasha Whiting, founder of Acorn Overseas, explains how important partnerships and fundraising like this is for the continued work of the organisation:  “When I first read the story and heard of how Samuel had come to write it based on the experiences of his own children, it really hit me, because we work tirelessly to support and care for children in the most desperate of situations abroad. Our aim is to bring a little bit of love, light and happiness back in to these young children’s lives - giving them safety and security, to be able to grow and learn in an environment that they deserve.”     Santa’s Wish is Samuel’s first children’s story book, but he already has another four penned and in the pipeline to be published, through his own publishing company Langley-Swain Books - each one helping to unravel complex issues for young readers..   “I am continually amazed by the challenges my children (and many like them) face in their daily lives and this is the inspiration behind my stories. I’m so proud to be able to support good causes like Acorn Overseas through the sale of books, while spreading positive messages and supporting children in learning to read.”       For more information please contact: Rob at      info@langley-swain.com      or Natasha at Acorn Overseas on: natasha@acornoverseas.org
