Holiday Gift Giving

It's "that" time of the year - almost.

As you make your list, and check it twice...thee are the Family Preservation Advocate's suggestions:

Help a child in Africa or sponsor an impoverished child in the U.S. for as little as $25 you can help a child with a got, books, water, or medication...  92 cents of every dollar to Save the children goes for their program services.

Give a gift of education, water, immunization, or nutrition to child in Darfur or other parts of the wold though UNICEF. Mosquito nets start at just $18.57 and help stop the spread of malaria or provide milk for under $25. Remember that UNICEF supports adoption as LAST resort!

Doctors Without Borders contributed 87% of all funds raised in 2008 to the program services.
 $35 buys two high-energy meals a day to 200 children; 550 people cab be vaccinated against against meningitis, measles, polio or other deadly epidemics for just $50.

Love the Child/Amor del Ninos, the children's home I visited in Guatemala.  These children have been abandoned or taken from their parents; many are disabled.

A donation to ANY of these charities directly aids children instead of taking from their homes and families to receive a "better life."

If you know of other charitable causes that help children and preserve families, please let me know to add to the list.
