Sponsor A Child!

First of all I would like to apologise on behalf of all authors of this blog for not blogging frequently. We do have valid reasons. Exams had started and I believe we are all struggling. =D That's just what I think. School activities are also very packed so yeah. But here I am trying my very best to bring this blog back alive!

Alright as you see in the title. Sponsor A Child. You might be trying to figure out the meaning behind that sentence right? If you had read the previous post then you shoud know what am I talking about. But nevermind let me go all over again.

Have you heard of World Vision? WV is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to help the less fortunates. Especially children. WV has offices all over the world. Namely those less develop countries. They had also set up a office in Malaysia. Under the name World Vision Malaysia, they had gathered sponsors from Malaysia to sponsor childrens from various countries. Sadly to say that they do not offer to sponsor children from Malaysia because our country is quite developed compared to other countries like Indonesia, India and others.

But to me as long as we have the heart to help others, no matter where we offer our help to does not matter. WVM began in Malaysia in 1997. This year is their 10th Anniversary in Malaysia. Congratulations WVM!

WV has come out with a program to help the children. The name of the program is 'Sponsor A Child'. You can already figure out what it means by looking at the title. Yes sponsor a child for only RM50 a month. Of course if you're wealthly you can sponsor more children. But sponsoring one child is already sufficient. By sponsoring a child you will get to know who are you sponsoring. Pictures of the child will be mailed to you and besides that you can write letters to you sponsored child as well.

Remember, A Kind Deed Will Be Always Remembered. I've already signed up to sponsor a child. But i'm thinking of getting some of my friends to join me as I won't be able to fork out RM50 a month. Quite a burden I would say. Hopefully I would be able to gather some friends. Would you want to join?

So thats all for today. Hope what I've written here would change your mind about doing charity. =D
