Acts of Kindness 12/17/07
I went to one site and was able to give all these wonderful gifts that give more for people around the world. That one site is The Hunger Site Store. Click here to visit the store that gives more.
High-Efficiency Stoves for Darfur Refugees
When women venture outside of the refugee camp in search of fuel to cook their meals the are often raped. I purchased a stove that requires up to 75% less firewood.
Send Two Girls to School in Afghanistan
In a country where only 21% of women are functionally literate, improving the education of girls is one of the most lasting ways to increase stability, prosperity, and peace. My donation will outfit two girls with school uniforms and the necessary supplies for a year of school.
Feed a U.S. Family for Five Weeks
In the United States, more than 35 million people, including 12.6 million children, live in households that do not have enough food. My gift will feed a family of four for five weeks.
Feed an Orphan in India for a Month
Mother Teresa said, "If you can't feed 100 people, then feed just one." My gift provides a child in an Indian orphanage with one month of nourishing meals -- rice, lentils, milk, vegetables, bread, noodles, and even such children's delights as fruit, peanut butter, jelly, and small glucose cookies.
Supply a Burmese Village Clinic for One Day
My gift provides the daily essential medicine and supply costs for an entire village health clinic in eastern Burma, serving a population of approximately 5,000 people.
Help Cyclone Victims in Bangladesh
Tens of thousands of survivors are now struggling for basic necessities like tents, rice, medicines and drinking water. My gift will go to the relief efforts.
I wish I could have done more. There is so many people in dire straits today. Famine, disease, war, weather . . .
There are options for helping animals in need as well. Please visit the Hunger Site Store today.
