I began 2011 looking for a new charity to give some of my time, effort and a little money. I believe we find what is meant to be found and lose what we no longer need. I already give to The Children’s Miracle Network each time I close a sale. I’ve collected Toys for Tots for many years and served on the Board of Happy Hats, a local non-profit organization, that serves the needs of hospitalized children.
Okay, it is fairly evident I like children. I am a former first grade teacher and mother of four. My grandchildren are the stars in my sky. I know the greatest hope for correction of flaws in the system lies within the power of present and future children of the world. If we want to see a change (and there are some things needing improvement if not radical changes) then we need to change the way children are treated, educated and valued–especially little girls born into this patriarchal world in third world countries.
Thanks to Carra Riley, a fellow Active Rain member, I discoveredEmpower Nepali Girls Foundation. I’m still learning about the program and I’m making my first, of what I hope will be many, donation to help a Nepali girl attend school and not be sold as a sex or domestic slave at the tender age of eight. That’s just wrong–so very wrong.
It does not require only major acts to change the world; millions of small acts of kindness will impact mankind.
