BENEFITING: Save the Children
EVENT DATE: Mar 09, 2013
For my 23rd Birthday I decided to skip the festivities and give up my birthday for those who need it. I chose this particular charity because I adore and (especially) value the lives of children. They are our future but at the same time they're among the most vulnerable of us. Too many children have the weight of the world on their shoulders at way too young an age. They should be able to play, go to school, be carefree in safety and enjoy their innocence before the cruelty of and in this world poisons it.
I'm fortunate enough to be the proud aunt of three wonderful, healthy, blessed children. But there are many children in the world who're not as fortunate as they are and as I am. It crushes my heart to think of all the children their age, younger or older, who don't have the most basic of needs met. Who are born into poverty, or conflict infested areas of the world, who start their lives at an unfair disadvantage, due to illness or other terrible fates of life.
That's why I hope you will join me in my fundraiser for Save The Children; An organization that helps children all over the world that struggle in terms of education, poverty, health, nutrition and so on. Their programs consist of child protection, education, health and nutrition, HIV/Aids, Child poverty, Children's rights governance and emergency care among others.
