Individuals can have an international impact.
Addressing the World's major problems doesn’t have to be a complicated, costly undertaking. This short story illustrates the fact that we all have something to give.
“A year ago we decided to quit eating out as much and to use the money to support a needy child. We keep her photo in our dining room and pray for her almost every night. Our daughters write her letters and consider her part of our extended family.
"It’s tough not to feel rich when you’re giving money away.”
Statistically, it is possible to cut World
Hunger in half by the year 2015 if the average taxpayer in all industrialized
countries kicked in only $50 a year. Would you be willing to pay $50 a year to
feed the millions of children and their families who are otherwise slowly
starving to death?
Consider donating to a charity with an international focus. Besides finding that your charitable buying power is greatly enhanced when your gift goes overseas, where so much more can be accomplished with much less cost, most importantly, you can literally save lives, as well as experience the joy of giving.
