First Lady Leading New Initiative to Build Emergency Shelter for Guam’s Foster Children
November 21, 2012
At any given time, Guam can have more than 200 children under Child Protective Services.  With less than 30 licensed foster families, there remains a great need for emergency shelter facilities to care for local foster children.
Today, First Lady Christine M.S. Calvo and the RigÃ¥lu Foundation are launching a new effort to build “The RigÃ¥lu House,” an emergency shelter to house Guam’s foster children.  The first fundraising event for this initiative, the “12·12·12 Gift of Love Telethon,” already is drawing major support from local non-profit organizations, businesses and caring Guamanians who want to help.
The telethon will be broadcast live from the Cars Plus Showroom in Maite on KGTF Channel 12 from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. on December 12, 2012.  Raffle tickets for prizes including a brand new car and a getaway for two to Manila are currently on sale and can be purchased through the RigÃ¥lu Foundation.
