The Little Edi Foundation
Ten years ago the Founder and President Tess Giggs when to Romania with a local missionaries from her church to hand out Christmas Shoeboxes to poor families in the village of Gilau. Over dinner at the end of the trip it was decided there was help needed in these poor rural communities and a shoebox once a year wasn’t enough - they knew they could do more! That night, the Little Edi Foundation was born. It has grown and continues to grow every year with the help of very dedicated Trustees, Volunteers and friends.
