THE STORY:

My teacher told us a story of a little boy she met on a mission trip. She said that they had taken with them clothes and mostly shoes with them because the devastatingly poor people in this village they were going had nothing. They starved for days, had no access to medical care, and had no clothes or shoes. The day came in the trip that each child lined up to pick a pair of shoes. There was a little boy at the end of the line and finally when he reached the front there were only one pair of shoes left and he started to smile largely. He picked up the pink crocs and instantly put them on his feet. He looked over at my teacher, who she said he loved them. 

It made me think a lot about how much we take for granted. We all have a computer sitting in front of us, some scrolling on expensive phones, and complain about some shirt our parents buy, or not getting what we want for dinner that night, and we don't realize that some people don't get basic needs such as food, water, shelter, medical care! This all leads to deaths and sickness when it shouldn't have to. To hear about this little boy who was so grateful to have a pair of little girls pink crocs so he could run around in, it made me appreciate what I have. I don't know If I can ever make a difference, I'm just one girl, but there are so many of you out there that I hope will make a difference too. Therefore Misha's Charity Random Acts! Haiti a poverty stricken country in need a lots of love and help. After the  Any help to change the world a little bit is something that will go a long way in the end if enough people do it.

Three years ago, after a devastating earthquake ravaged Haiti, Random Acts made a commitment to help rebuild homes, communities, and lives. Since then, we've raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Haiti and funneled that money directly into local, sustainable projects serving children in Jacmel. Our projects have provided hundreds of children with a safe place to sleep, clean water and regular meals, health care, a school to go to, families who care for them and, most importantly, hope for the future.
