  Will You Click To Help 16 Special Kids?


I write frequently about my 14-year-old son Charlie, who’s on the moderate to severe end of the autism spectrum. Charlie has lots of needs but, thankfully, his basic needs (medical care, education, food, clothing, shelter) are provided for — and there are certainly too many children around the world who don’t have access to basic medical care, sanitary living conditions, an education.

Care2′s click-to-donate program sponsors 16 children through Children International, a nonprofit, humanitarian organization dedicated to easing the burdens of poverty on poor children. Your click helps to support their monthly sponsorship to provide these children with basic services and needs.  Children International provides health, educational and material aid to impoverished children around the world via one-to-one sponsorship — 100 percent of the dollars to Children International go directly to the basic needs of children including Bryan in Manila, Philippines, and Adriana in in Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest city. Care2 pools the daily donations and presents them to Children International on a regular basis.

Here’s just some of what your donation will help to provide for Bryan, Adriana and 14 other children: Access to a doctor and dentist; vaccines and medicine; tuition assistance to schools, as well as uniforms and school supplies; feeding programs; malnutrition screenings; leadership and vocational training; clean-water initiatives, sanitary latrines; household items; housing and home-repair assistance.

Last year, your clicks raised $926.00 for the kids. But we need to collect at least $800.00 to be able to distribute the donations directly to the children we sponsor. Even $5.00 can make a difference — surely we can break the $1000.00 mark to give to 16 kids this year?

To donate, visit http://cigifts.chipin.com/click-to-donate-holiday-2011. Thank you!
