i have been to an orphanage before and being able to share with these kids is just so heartwarming. what orphanage do you plan to visit this coming sunday? try to visit white cross. the kids there are just awesome. when i went there before, i donated detergent powder and fabric conditioner for their laundry works. my classmates donated food like canned goods and instant noodles. old clothes and toys are good donations, too. oh, i also recommend that you visit an orphanage when Christmas time comes and maybe organize a party for the kids because really, when you'll see them having fun and enjoying that moment, you will not only feel blessed but you'll also feel that you have touched their lives. for now, i do hope you enjoy your visit there with your kids. =D

I really had not yet visited an orphanage but I can relate to the excitement and feeling of giving to this kind of charity. When I was still single and an active member of our church, we have visited a home who cares for the old aged people. You could see in their face the gladness and happiness of seeing people visiting them. One thing that really touches my heart is how they cherish and loved the thing that you gave them whatever its value. It will be a great experienced specially for your children that at their young age they will see how lucky in life they are. Hope that when they grew older they will have the same sympathy and compassion you have for our less fortunate people.

I have visited an Orphanage before with my friend to adopt a new daughter. Her name is Emily and they are a very nice and tight family. I don't any not needed stuff any longer to charities, and I do donate quite a substantial amount each year in items as well as money. I think the basics we take for granted way too much and we don't know what we've got till its gone. Ever heard of the saying? It's totally true.
