ChildFund International Launches 100 Days of Yes

Between the quickly dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks, and ubiquitous Thanksgiving how-to guides, the holiday season seems to be creeping up on us faster than we can say, “It’s not even Halloween yet!” And okay, we do technically have a ways to go before we’re swimming in a sea of pie crusts, wrapping paper, and shopping bags, but it’s easy to get lost in all of the the holiday chaos – which is why we love stumbling on programs like ChildFund International’s 100 Days of Yes.

Kicking off today, 100 Days of Yes aims to engage families with the needs of the global community and teach kids about the power of giving to those who aren’t as fortunate as they are. How does it work? Children and their parents can pick out gifts for impoverished communities in over 30 countries from ChildFund’s online catalog. All of the items are practical – mosquito nets, water purification systems, table and chairs for school classrooms – and with gift ideas starting at just $6, 100 Days of Yes gives kids a simple and affordable way to help their peers in Liberia, Sri Lanka, and even the United States, where poverty rates have climbed to 14.3 percent. Learn more by heading over to childfund.org.

    The core of your writing while appearing agreeable initially, did not work well with me after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you managed to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one might do well to help fill in all those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I could surely end up being impressed.
