What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
You’ve seen the commercials before from similar organizations, showing hungry, dirty children with sad faces. A phone number appears at the bottom of the screen and invites you to sponsor a child with a monthly contribution.
This month’s Charity of the Month, Children International, is one of many such organizations who facilitate the sponsorship of individual children, allowing donors to make a direct and visible impact on another person’s life. This unique model allows you to regularly witness the progress and impact your contributions are having—something that few charitable organizations can provide.
The $22 monthly sponsorship through Children International provides key resources for your child, such as:
- Medical care
- Youth programs
- Dental care
- Nutritional aid
- Family assistance
- Housing programs
Reading through some of the stories of sponsors and Children International’s work, one can’t help but feel awed at the magnitude of change these people have had in countless lives. If you’ve got $22 to spare each month on a worthy cause, why not search for a child to sponsor?
