Your neighbors children may be hungry and deprived
Organized by: brittney rupp
Every day in America, millions of our children, who appear to be healthy and happy are struggling with issues at home. Whether it is no food in the fridge, unstable living conditions, or even watching their pet die of starvation. It is humiliating and devastating for young children to not even have the basic necessities that they want and need to survive. Such as shoes, diapers, proper hygiene supplies, or even school supplies. These examples are just a small fraction of what could be missing from a childs vocabulary. Winter will be here before we know it, which only increases the severity of going without the basic needs. Depending on the severity of each child's case, "going without" can cause sickness and even death. I know how hard it is to tell my children "NO" to a piece of candy in the check out line, let alone to imagine telling them "NO" to a winter coat or even something for dinner. It makes me cringe at the thought of it. Children all around the world are struggling in many ways much more severe then what I have described. But I hope to start with America's children, to set them up for the future. So then, our children's children, can come up with a solution that will become a worldwide chain. For the amount of ridiculous money each and every one of us spends each year, on wants, and not on needs...I am hoping that we can atleast donate a few dollars to saving maybe our own neighbor's child from the humiliation and depression of going "with out". Thanks for listening, and just remember, every penny counts!
