I have had the link up for World Vision sponsorship since before I had even done my first post, but I have never spoken about it before today. While I sit here in my comfortable house moaning about the lack of money that dominates my life, it is no where near the poverty that dominates many countries.
“World Vision works around the world - and in
too - to transform the lives of disadvantaged and
at-risk children and communities. From our broad-ranging Solutions, to our work
with youth, corporate and faith-based groups, World Vision is committed to the
alleviation of suffering, and an end to poverty everywhere.” (Quote from the
World Vision Website) Australia
When Tamika was born I choose to sponsor a child. Even if I was a struggling single Mum I still knew I had it better than many others. I sponsored my little girl, until she became 18. I have been making a promise to myself that as soon as I get a job I am going to sponsor another child. But until then I am asking everyone out there to think about giving, whether it is child sponsorship, purchasing a World Vision gift, or donating to another charity. Do you really need that cup of coffee? How about instead you donate that $5 bucks to charity instead? After all every little bit counts.
