Save the Children

Dec 20, 2012 | Latest & Greatest

Every day is a day to be charitable — especially during this time of the year. It’s vital to instill in our grandchildren the gift of giving to others. Speak with them about how lucky they are, and at the same time, make them aware of children less fortunate, here in the US and abroad. This holiday season we are showcasing “Save the Children “. Featured here is a video of their work in response to Hurricane Sandy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0DkaTv45Cs We hope you will donate to this terrific and valiant organization.

Pertinent info

www.savethechildren.org “is the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in the United States and around the world. Recognized for our commitment to accountability, innovation, and collaboration our work takes us into the heart of communities, where we help children and families help themselves. We work with other organizations, governments, non-profits, and a variety of local partners while maintaining our own independence without political agenda or religious orientation.

When disaster strikes around the world, Save the Children is there to save lives with food, medical care, and education, and remains to help communities rebuild through long-term recovery programs. As quickly and as effectively as Save the Children responds to tsunamis and civil conflict, it works to resolve the ongoing struggles children face every day- poverty, hunger, illiteracy, and disease-and replaces them with hope for the future.”

“1 in 5 children lives in poverty in the United States. Children from struggling families often fall behind because they’re not given the same chances to succeed as other children. Save the Children fights to ensure that every child gets a fair chance in life.”
