OK folks - this is where we stand with the zeros.
There are TOO MANY !!!!
Right now, we are down to
36 34 33 32 25 23 19 13 12 8 2 children with zero !!
LOOK at the red numbers - children who have been SEEN - children who have been noticed - children who have been cared enough about that someone - or probably several someones (forgive my English) - took the time to click on their link, read their profiles, and donate to them.
Children who are NO LONGER ZEROS in any way
Those children who have hope, because if ONE person can notice them, that means even MORE people can see them, and see that they have worth - and maybe donate to them - or, even, step forward and say MINE.
What about the other
36 34 33 32 25 23 19 13 12
8 6 2 children ?
Children who, until very recently, have not been seen.
Newly listed children.
Children who have been hidden away in orphanages and institutions, left behind, forgotten.
What are we going to do ?
Glance at them then look away ?
Pretend we don't see them ?
Move on to the young, cuter kids ?
Turn a blind eye to these older kids, abandoned and passed over too many times in their short lives ?
Or are we going to make a stand.
Stand up for the beautiful kids we see in front of us.
Look them in the eye and tell them that NO - we will NOT ignore them.
WE DO CARE.
Tell them they are worth SO MUCH MORE than zero.
Tell the world that they have worth.
If not US - then WHO ??
Freida - $5
Jill L22 -
Brady L9 -
Melissa 2S -
Ian 2S -
Thomas L19 -
Christian L11 -
John and James 32K -
William and Tommy -
Hogan - $0
Hedda - $0
What can YOU do ?
Look them in the eye
DONATE - get RID of those abominable zeros !!
If not YOU - then WHO ??
Once we get rid of the zeros, we will be back to working on getting the grants of all of the older kids up to $100.
First, though - we need to ZERO THE ZEROS !!!
