I did something extraordinary

World Vision - Child Sponsorship - Our child sponsorship scheme is unique. 
We are the only development agency that manages every penny of its donations, so you can be sure your money reaches those who need it most.

You get to see and feel the difference your support makes directly, through the eyes of your sponsored child and their regular letters and photographs. What could be more rewarding? And because we’re committed to working in an area until it becomes self-sufficient, you can be sure your money is a hand-up not a hand out.

Well thats what the advert said, lol Before Christmas I sponsored a child in Zambia. https://www.worldvision.org.uk/server/show/nav.29 It costs me Just £18 a month. That works out as £4.50 a week, or just 60p a day. The sponsorship will help sustain a child's health, provide basic education, and also support fresh water and regular food. As a sponsor, I can look forward to receiving yearly updates, a progress reports and letters from my sponsored child... Well, today I had my first letter From Christine, She told me all about herself and family. Her birthday is in February, she will be 10 and she lives in a place called Lufwanyama. It was really nice to hear from her, so I was wondering if anyone else does anything like this? Do you give to charity? --------------------------------- Did you know that there are charity paid to click sites? There are six different sites in the group. (see top of this page) http://www.thechildhealthsite.com It only takes a few seconds a day to go click on these sites, and you could be really helping someone in need! You can also sign up for a daily email reminder to remind you to click each day.

That is very nice of you. That sounds great and I have always wondered how those charities that sponsor children works. I do donate to charity when I can, and I usually donate to an animal charity.

Chriss, That is truly amazing and I know that you are feeling really blessed right now. No, I have never done that before as I was always working very hard to feed my own family as a single momma for most of their lives. As to your question about donating to charities - Absolutely! No matter what my income, and now it is a fixed government income (Disability), I always pick the first envelope that comes in any given month and when my check comes send them a donation. Sometimes it may be $25, other times it may be $5, it all depends on what I have or don't have; but I always make sure that I have enough to give something. I also shop at Goodwill and Salvation Army and never go there to shop without taking a bag full of things to donate. It's not a lot, but it's the best I can do. ~Donna
