Forgive me for not knowing your name. That’s how life is sometimes. We just, sort of, walk by each other and never take time to say, “hello” or to smile and say, “have a nice day!”
We seldom think of others outside of our own skins or our own family, others who literally suffer every single day from a variety of problems, most caused by poverty and almost all driven by hunger.
Remember when you were a child? You had hopes and dreams. You laughed and played and someone (hopefully) was there to care for you, to hug you and to love you. You looked forward to each and every day of life with hope and happiness.
Well, every day all around the world and probably in your own country–there are children who are suffering, struggling to survive another day. Their bellies are empty and swollen from starvation and some are dying from illnesses that are fully treatable and cureable. They have no one to take care of them. Some turn to acts of unspeakable desperation believing that there is no other way out. Thankfully, there is another way.
Strangers who they may never meet are giving them hope.
It’s amazing what a person can do with a bit of hope. Where there is hope, there is life and a will to survive.
You might not be able to help physically or even financially, and I totally respect that… However, let me ask you this, if there were a way that you could save a child, would you?
You don’t have to be a celebrity with pockets full of money to make a difference. Anyone can change the world, just by helping one person at a time.
I would like to encourage you to visit these sites (check them out, verify what you see) and to give to one or both of the following organizations as your heart leads you.
Feed The Children – FeedTheChildren.Org
World Vision – WorldVision.Org
You can also help in your own community by becoming a mentor to a young person. You can teach, encourage and enable these young people to have better futures. You’ll be surprised at how much you’ve learned in your lifetime and how someone else can benefit from your valuable experience and well-earned wisdom.
If one single thing you share spares a young person from making a mistake (sometimes a tragic one), then you will have made a difference and you will have helped to shape the future.
Believe in yourself and others.
Have a great day!!!
