I am so thankful.
These gals just got back from an amazing trip to Uganda, to identify orphan care points in various regions of the country that desperately need your help. Many of these care points are filled with children caring for their younger siblings, or, "child-headed households".
It is not uncommon for African children to help care for their younger siblings. However, imagine being 9 years old and have lost your mother or father-or both due to AIDS.
Look at your children and think about that.
9 yrs old is too young. Way too young.
Many child-headed households are lead by a child much younger than 9.
As a blogging community, I want to start a wave-I would like each of you to consider sponsoring one child-headed household. For my readers, my goal is to have 10 households sponsored. To provide
to all of these children you see in these pictures. Wow, what a gift.
Will you pray about this?
I want you to take a look into the many faces you see here and ask God what you can do.
You can change a life for the same cost as your Starbucks coffee runs each month.
It's that simple.
I am going to try to figure out how you can donate directly from my blog here if that is easier for you. I need to chat with Brandi about that :)
