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.
