Charity

Hey all! I hope you are having a happy beginning of the week. 

Last week the hype about “Kony2012” or “Stop Kony” was extraordinary. The film is actually from 2006 and since then something has changed. He has not been in Uganda for a number of years...
 
However, the needs and atrocities in Africa and other countries are still there.  I’d like to share with you some charities I help from time to time and that might be in need of some exposure. I’m not wealthy at all, just a regular citizen who likes to donate a dollar here and there. It makes me happy.  As usual you can do your own independent research on any of these organizations.  I do not endorse any of them individually and my post is just to inform you and maybe encourage you to help not only Invincible Children but other non-profit organizations.

We take for granted so many things that are difficult to make or build and some charities help bring or develop these kinds of items in poor countries.  Some of the most pressing issues in Africa and other third world countries are diseases, clean water and education.  The United States provides far more aid to these nations than any other nation, and a large part of this is because of the generosity of folks like us.  All in all, I’m happy to spread the word about these organizations and programs. Most of the programs on this list are funded at least in part by the U.S. government.
