All that clicking that they do.... Does it even make a difference?!? Well logging onto Care2.com today answered that question for us and you! "Since Children International became a part of the Click-to-Donate program in 2004, Care2 has sponsored 16 needy children from nine countries -- contributing over $21,000 to their care. Thank you to those who continue to click each day, providing children with materials and opportunities for a better life." That's just one example! And I'm certain there's several more testimonials as to how we make a difference within the Care 2 community. Hema, Raksha, and I were all able to login to Care2 this evening and make a difference.
Here's what Hema had to say... "Here is what I did on Care2. 1. I signed a petition so that Pennsylavania will develop stronger laws about reporting child abuse. Recently, Penn State's football coach failed to report instances of child abuse that occured for many years. We do not want to have another repeat of this. 2. I signed a petition that would save the lives of street dogs. There are a lot of dogs that are homeless all around the world and they all face being poisoned, electrocuted or shot as a result of misguided efforts to manage overpopulation. HSI (humane society international) will work with local communites to prevent these dogs from being killed and getting them the help they need to find a loving home."
Along with that, I stumbled upon a video on a mutual friends site for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The video was on Youtube, and for every view a $1 is donated! I'd shared the video with friends, and here's what one had to say... "Kim M. Braud - Wow, that is powerful! Very touching - thanks for sharing.."
It wasn't a physical day for us as planned, but we are grateful for the opportunity to be able to contribute our time and efforts online. It's simple, it's easy, and we can all do it. What can you do to give back during the holiday season? Just look around! Ask. We'd be glad to help!
