Each year, ChildFund receives many wonderful gifts through wills and other estate plans from those who decided to make the children we serve a part of their family. Barbara Anton was one of these special friends.

A noted author, artist and jewelry designer, she loved to create and share her beautiful pieces with others. Not long ago, Barbara passed away, and it was her wish to continue sharing her kindness with children throughout the world through a perpetual trust.

A sale of her jewelry is being held Dec. 4 and 5 as part of the Leslie Hindman auction in Chicago. Proceeds from the auction will be contributed to the Anton Memorial Trust, a perpetual trust of which ChildFund is the sole beneficiary. ChildFund will then distribute the trust’s earnings to benefit as many children as possible. The funds will help children and their families by providing clean water, health care and special assistance during times of drought and other emergencies.

ChildFund is grateful that Barbara Anton chose to leave this special gift that will touch the lives of so many children.

If you would like to leave a legacy of love and sharing through the work of ChildFund, there are many ways to do so. To learn more about including a gift to ChildFund as part of your will or other estate and financial plans, please call us toll-free at 1-800-762-9593, or email us at
