Growing, Not Dying

Welcome to my insights, ponderings, and experiences. Hopefully they will enrich you in some small way, or at least make you laugh.

Healing the World...One Child at a Time

There are a lot of very worth while causes to contribute money to. (I, personally, favor about 5, and would do more if I could.) Today I would like to invite each of you to consider one inparticular and see if it moves you in any way.

World Vision sponsors children in countries all over the world. They bring medicine, education, and needed supplies. The dig well, build schools, and teach irrigation. One of the things I particularly like about this organization is they want to teach the people, particularly the children, how to make better lives for themselves as well as provide immediate relief.

I sponsor a child in the Phillippines. His name is Jeric and he is 8 years old. He write every 2-3 months, in cursive. :) Smart kid. He likes playing with his friends and helping his dad with the corn. He has 3 younger siblings. And he always says, "thank you for being my sponsor."

It's only $30 a month, which isn't much. (If only I could raise a kid in the US for $30 a week!) They have children in all different countries, various ages and either gender. If you feel moved at all to help these children have clean water, clothes and an education, please visit
