From November 28th to December 1st, I was fortunate enough to be be one of the eight RBNA colleagues who visited four of the schools in Marion County, Mississippi where Save the Children focuses many of their efforts. My goal is to continue to raise funds for Save the Children.
In the United States, one in six children lives in poverty. Save the Children works in impoverished rural communities in Appalachia, the Southeast, the Mississippi River Delta, the Gulf Coast, the Southwest and California’s Central Valley – where conditions resemble parts of the developing world. Save the Children provides early childhood development, literacy, physical activity, and nutrition programming in these communities, as well as emergency relief.
Through RB, I sponsor two children who live within the area we that we visited. I was lucky enough to meet them both!!!
Donating through the First Giving website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and please forward this to anyone you think might want to donate! No amount is too small!
