Good info. It is definietly in keeping with the Care2 mission. Armchair advocates can do lot of good in this world and are not the lazy uninspired dullards others make them, us, me whatever, out to be. I'm a proud member of Kiva and I also donate what little time and money I have to several causes thus making as big an impact as I can. Thanks.

I appreciate the thought Robert. Thanks for the summary statement and personal example, too Robert. You cannot currently send a star to Robert because you have done so within the last week.
You are welcome Robert and Kerrie.

It really is so sad, ironic, even pathetic that suffering can be lessened by a few simple acts.
The Red Cross, UNICEF, Salvation Army, three Christian based organizations are too busy deciding who they are going to :save:- physically, geographically,and religiously. How much do the directors of these organizations make in terms of salary? How much of a person's donation goes toward these salaries?
