BENEFITING: Children International
Hi friends! Children International has been a part of my life since I was a child. The organization focuses on poverty alleviation in 10 countries through sponsorship (medical care, educational support, life skills and job placement after graduation) and community support. My earliest memory with this organization is when I was 8 years old and a pen-pal to the children my grandfather sponsored. Eight years later I started my first job and sponsored a child with my same birthday so every year I could send him a present when I received gifts. My involvement now consists of sponsoring 3 children and visiting centers abroad whenever I can. I wholeheartedly believe in this organization and have done research and visited centers to understand how they use funds. So, for my thirtieth I want to do something different. Rajiv and I will be hosting a party at our apartment (rumor has it we're hiring a bartender) and I'm asking you to bring nothing other than your beautiful self. Instead of gifts of any kind, please consider donating to this cause I truly believe in. Either way, come over for drinks and good times!
