Have you ever thought about the poor, starving children around the world? Have you ever really thought about it?
Think now: your own child is starving. You'd feed them, right? Of course you would, it's your own child! Your niece is starving, you'd feed her too, correct? Along with your father and siblings? Yes, you would.
So what makes these people any different than the poor starving children in Africa? Nothing really, if you think about it. The children in Africa live and breath and talk and think just like the rest of us do. Their just starving. So why don't we help them like we would help our family? Maybe it is because it isn't something you think about everyday, it's not on your mind. Really it isn't something that you want to think about all day. It's depressing and horrid, but it's true. So maybe we should do something to help.
My youth group is doing just that. We are raising money to buy an animal from the Heifer Foundation (go to http://www.heifer.org/ to learn more). When you buy an animal the Heifer foundation gives it to a family in needs. Any offspring of that animal are shared with neighboring families, so it is a gift that keeps on giving. January 7th is our last day to raise money to the Heifer Foundation becuase that is when we are meeting and couting the money we earned and picking an animal that we can buy . So here is you chance to do something. Donating to the Heifer Foundation helps all the poor starving children. If you would like to help, some how get the donation to me, my mom, or my dad before January 7th. Any donation is appreciated.
So just think about it. Contact me if you have any questions.
