  1. Beautiful site btw,great start gentlemen !

    Onto World Vision: I am a co-parent of one their children in Ughanda . her name is Justine and I have made it my business to know about her medical care and education . Her missionary helps her write letter's because the language barrier,she lives in an aides infested village and has both parents and both her siblings are alive.I have sent her toys and she adores soccer. The missionaries do their best to ensure she has some semblance of being a kid in a hateful country. It is hateful and dangerous. I tithe to World Vision monthly and to local shelters ,food banks and homeless. However there is more then tithing needed . walk the walk and do the work . It takes one to two hours a week to call friends and ask fro extra blankets and coats ,scarves anything that will withstand some hard weather. Tarps and tents are welcome and take them down to the local soup kitchens to hand out in the down town areas . selling them at the local thrift store does not help them BUT the local ministries and salvation army that has beds and the shelters who house these folks after 5 pm do appreciate them . also do not be affraid to hand them out during the day to the homeless ourselves. They need it. tent cities are popping up all over , donate there as well and bring a bag or two of groceries there or gift certificates to grocery stores and wal-mart for clothes for the kids on the streets . there is a huge amount of kids on the streets . I agree with world vision and I love my small 8 year old child that I sort of adopted and I want her to thrive I really do.
