sponsor a child

For years there have been lots of organizations - well meaning I hope - out there offering opportunities to sponsor a child in the developing world and make a difference in their lives. Frankly, I want to make a difference, but I just don't trust all of those organizations. And I'm not sure they way they operate is the best way even if they are sincere. I hope I'm wrong but...

Anyway, today I came across a very interesting take on child sponsorship. I'm guessing it is only a parody but it would be a great program. In this program, it is well-off American kids who are sponsored by families in the developing world. The family prays for the child and shows them both the way they live without all of the stuff we have in the US and shows them the effects of our lifestyle on the rest of the world... Wouldn't that be a great program?

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.blogspot.com

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David

Roy, That is great! I love that take on the sponsorship of the child. It sorta forces us to look at need and help a little differently. Us westerners tend to see need as monetary only...

Is great! But there is in the word different needs of children sponsorship, depending on the place where they live.
I amo more touched for children from Africa or Asia, like Zambia, Mozambique, Nepal, Camboja....
