If any out there wants to do something real ez and enexspensive that will have an immediate impact on a child's life check out Edenrose.org This is a nonprofit ( with quite a few heads involved) that work with women and children in Ecuador to help provide them with a better life. The work they do is selfless and at the least inspiring. My pin company has helped them raise $200 in the last couple of days which will provide 40 children with some sort of Christmas. They still need a lot of help and for as little as $5 u can impact a child's life.
U have probably seen these brothers and sisters on lot. They vend those heady alpaca hoodies. I have had the opportunity to spend a lot of time talking to them, and see the work they do. It amazes me.
