Children, Incorporated was founded in 1964 by Jeanne Clark Wood. Compassion for needy children was bred in her, as her parents were both noted philanthropists during their lifetime.
The beginning of Children, Incorporated was a modest one, and the first youngsters Mrs. Wood helped were from Guatemala. On a visit to Guatemala in 1964, she had photographed 95 poverty – stricken children and had written accounts of the miserable circumstances in which each child existed. Immediately upon her return to Richmond, Virginia, her hometown, Mrs. Wood began to seek help for the 95 little Guatemalans. She opened an office in her own home and by writing letters and through magazine advertisements she told of the children’s plight.
In the spring of 1971, Mrs. Wood made a second trip to Guatemala. During the lapse of time between her two visits there – from 1964 to 1971, barely seven years – her program of help to children, begun on such a small scale, had flourished. So, from fewer than 100 children in three small projects, Children, Incorporated now has over 16,000 children in 300 projects in 24 countries around the world!

From Burn: “David and Donna have both been longtime friends with us at HOT. They are extraordinary people who are helping many. As a medical officer, I have learned much from them. I once invited them to give a lecture to medical students at a university where I teach. Donna amazed all of us as she went around the room and was able to read the energies and say what she saw clinically. The students confirmed her findings. Before agreeing to a surgery, I would ask for their advice. Good friends, extraordinary teachers.”
