Help Put the "Thanks” and “Giving" Back in “Thanksgiving”
As we approach Thanksgiving, we are reminded of the things we are thankful for: our health, our loved ones, a roof over our heads, and food on our table. During these moments of ‘
giving’, we should remember those less fortunate living in poverty, dreaming of a safe and warm room or just a few slices of bread for their children’s dinner.
It is easy to sit back in a comfortable chair and come up
with a theoretical solution for the world’s problems, but in reality, we can
a difference by taking action.
We need to work hard
for the rights of
children to have access to education, help children stay warm in the frigid
weather of Mazar-e-Sharif or villages of Kermanshah devastated by the
earthquake, or help put food on the tables of hundreds of orphan children in
Cambodia or Rohingya refugees from Myanmar.
and more is what Child Foundation is doing,
and we need your help to continue to expand our humanitarian initiatives. Although
our main goal is to help children in need to have access to education, we
continue to support additional humanitarian programs by:
v Delivering heating system for 105 Conexes that were already purchased and delivered by Child Foundation to replace classrooms that had been destroyed by Kermanshah earthquake,
v Providing food, and education to hundreds of orphans through our local partners in Cambodia,
v Purchasing coal for families in Mazar-e-Sharif in order to stay warm in coming winter,
v Arranging for Food and education for Rohingya children who escaped persecution and death in Myanmar
This Thanksgiving, we ask you to invite children from around the world to your thanksgiving table by providing them with a decent meal . Open your hearts and share your blessings with those who have nothing to celebrate except your kindness and generosity. Help celebrate your thanks and give back to those who do not have the resources that you are fortunate to have!
This thanksgiving, celebrate your
