My name is Don Wolf. I am a third generation Croatian American who has visited Croatia fourteen times, as I still have many relatives in Zagreb, Gerovo (Gorski Kotar) and Rijeka. As a photographer I had the opportunity to go to Croatia during the war with Dr. Miroslav Kovachevic, a pediatrician from Chicago who was born in Croatia.
By showing my images I was able to raise funds for Croatian orphans. With the help of Stephen Fracol and Emily Novak, I produced a video tape on How to Make Croatian Nut Bread (Povitica). The profits from the sales, over $30,000 went to purchase new plumbing and replace all the old rusty plumbing in St. Theresa's Orphanage (Dom).
Right now the roof of the dom is leaking water into the children's bedroom whenever it rains or snows.The dom was built in 1924 and has been patched so many times and must now be replaced. I have talked with the constructon supervisor and he has shown me the evidence.
I have, with the help of Suzana Ryan (a third generation Slovenian American), produced a small flyer (brochure) about St.Theresa's. If you would be so kind I would ask you to do one or two things if you can.
If you send me your address I will send you the flyer. If you feel more energetic and really want to help, I could send you many flyers for you to redistribute to your family, friends, club, church etc..
These efforts are through the Croatian Council of Kansas City and we do have a tax exempt status if you need it. The Croatian Council is a group of various Croatian organizations in Kansas City and not a political group.
I know that the word Croatian was spelled as Croation and I will never hear the last of not catching it before it went to press so I ask for your leniency in advance.

All checks are made out to St. Theresa's Orphanage (NOT DON WOLF) They are then wire transferred from Industrial State Bank by Mr. Stephen Bozic Galvin directly into the orphanage account in Zagreb. Third generation Croatian Americans are doing our part the best we can.
