A lot of people in our office support non-profits and charity work. This week, we’re spotlighting Mia’s Children Foundation, an organization co-founded by attorney Darrell Castle and his wife and office manager Joan Castle.
According to their mission statement, Mia’s Children is a non-profit organization founded on the dream of seeing young people in Bucharest, Romania, who have limited resources grow up in a loving, encouraging environment and become happy and healthy members of Romanian society – physically, emotionally, spiritually.
Darrell and Joan Castle began Mia’s Children with Mia Scarlet in 1998 after meeting Mia in Memphis. Their time with Mia led to a cross-continental friendship and partnership with Mia and her husband Costel in Bucharest, Romania.
The Castles became even more dedicated to the cause after visiting Romania a few years later and seeing how Mia’s Children had developed and grown as an organization. The children there received them warmly and were an inspiration to both Darrell and Joan as they returned to the States.
