BENEFITING: GLOBAL ROOTS
HOURS PLEDGED: 6
Working with people who believe that children truly are the future and that they all deserve a place to find refuge and to feel loved.
Global Roots is an American based 501c3 organization that builds Children's Gardens in countries such as Tibet and Afghanistan, just to name a few.
Here is what they have to say:
"Millions of abandoned children face the same problem: emotional neglect + hunger = vulnerability. Vulnerability + exploitation = angry children who completely lose the ability to love or be loved FOREVER.
Global Roots has found a solution: we work with local humanitarians in distressed places to create "children's gardens" — havens of tranquility where traumatized children can learn, heal and feel love."
We invite you to help us help Global Roots strive to continue bringing love to children everywhere. Our goal is to raise $1,500 by the end of 2012. We would appreciate any amount you can give, which will go straight to Global Roots.
