Ask anyone who has, and still is being effected by the recent “recession”, being able to provide for ourselves and our families isn’t always easy. Some are managing better than others, even while still being effected by the recession. Poverty, is still an issue for much of the country, especially in areas that were already hard hit with extreme poverty. World Vision recently published this article on children living in poverty.
It breaks my heart to see children lack the basic necessities that will help them succeed in life and in school. If you are able to, and feel compelled to do so, please help these children through a reputable organization such as World Vision. Every little bit helps, whether you are able to sponsor a child, make a one time donation, create hats, baby blankets, or sweaters, or even praying for those who are helping these children, everything helps.
