International Children’s Day – 01 June 2009

With International Children’s Day just around the corner, we thought it a good idea to incorporate this into our monthly challenge. Children are so special and need us looking out for them as they can’t do it themselves. Our challenge to you this month is to get involved and make a difference to a child’s life.

Herewith a few suggestions:

Volunteer at a children’s home
Make time, even if it’s once a month to spend an hour or two at an orphanage. You can either entertain the older kids by reading them stories or joining them for a soccer game or you can spend your time loving abandoned babies.

Donate your clothes and toys
You came into this life with nothing and will make your exit with… well, nothing. So why store up? Donate your children’s old clothes and toys to an orphanage in your area.

Online donations:
If you would like to make a difference but just don’t have the luxury of spending time somewhere, you can always make an online donation:

Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund
Child Welfare SA

“A child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark.”
