101 in 1001 - Goal #38 complete


Goal #38 - Sponsor a child

I did some research and decided to go with Save the Children. I signed up for a monthly donation of less than $30 and I am now the sponsor of a 9 year old girl in Mozambique. They sent me a welcome kit that includes facts & figures about the country. The ones that stick out the most to me are these:

Population living below the national poverty line: 69%.

Life expectancy: 41 years.

I'm hoping that my donation can help improve this little girl's life. It seems like such a small thing to do, especially in a country in which we have so much, but I guess that enough small things add up to something truly meaningful.

That's great Tammy. I may think about doing something like this. Let me know how you like the Mother Teresa book. I'm interested in reading it.
