She has found a charity that is building a facility in the Far East to save and care for women and children caught in the sex trade that flourishes there. She raised $1200 in an hour by telling her story and letting people do what they could do.
Of course, she has a horrific story to tell that relates to children who are being abused, but we are all sitting in the audience. We are all hearing these things and all we have to do is help a little—a lot, if we can. That’s the thing.
There are amazing charitable organizations, digging wells, saving children, working here and all over the world that are run by extraordinary people who are making an astounding difference in the world.* We probably don’t need any more charities, but all these organizations need support. And, the truth is, it is almost impossible to change things without money.
The famous rule about money is: Give Some, Save Some, Spend Some. Most of us are great on the spending part, and some of us are getting good at the saving part. But giving is not as natural. Just ask a three year-old for a bite of his candy bar. Good luck with that. Well, we’re not three years old any more.
Take a look around, see where you can make a dent. Like this little girl who rose from the ashes to become the guardian of others. You are just as powerful. And then, please share your experience of giving here. We'd love to hear from you!
