"Imagine for a moment that 10 million children were going to loose their lives next year due to the earths overheating. A state of emergency would be declared and you would be reading about little else. Well, next year, more than 10 million children's loves will be lost unnecessarily to extremer, poverty , and you'll hear very little about it. Nearly half will be on the Continent of Africa, where HIV?AIDS is killing teachers faster than you can train them and where you can witness entire villages in which the children are the parents."
"Will American Christian stand by as an entire continent dies?"
Last night I had the privilege of attending a program at my church, called Children of the world International Children's Choir. The were heart wrenchingly cute! I walked in when the were singing the African alma matta, and I memorized it in High school (yes Africa was in my heart then too)! The kids minister to 60 counties and share the desperation of needs around the globe. The are a voice for their nations and last night the Voice was heard for the nation of Africa. Concerning the devastation of AIDS. I think it woke some people up to hear that this is going on now, and its not getting better its getting worse. I thought I would do a little research at what Moms can do here in the US on our front.
Here is something I thought that was really neat ....Breastmilk Donations. For you nursing mommas, you can donate your milk. 25 percent goes to Africa and the rest stays here in the US for critcally ill children. They ship the coolers to you and test your blood at your own home at no cost to you. Check it out at BrestMilk Project. I have noe to give, but maybe someone knows someone that have extra?
Okay that is my search for the day...on to do laundry, change a diaper, feed the dog, take a shower, make lunch, you get it!
An inexpensive gift idea and a fun recipe!
