i did something meaningful this children’s day by donating to world vision’s “save the street kids” campaign and room to read.
had the idea when reading a story ST ran 2 Saturdays ago because i was rather bothered by the plight of children in countries like cambodia, somalia, india and thailand. while kids here are busy mugging for school and playing computer games, there are many children out there exploited in many ways unimaginable.
there are a few causes that i champion but those top on my list are giving everyone a chance to be educated and getting victims out of abusive environment where they are exploited for illegal trades. providing basic needs like food, jobs and shelter are also issues close to my heart.
i think it’s wonderful to have so many charity organisations rooting for different causes because there are so many wrongs to make right in this world. i can’t be there in person to help so the least i can do now is to donate.
