Bono of U2:

One love

One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

Meet my sponsored child, Ronaldo!

I am posting this to encourage everyone to sponsor a child too! There are still thousands of children waiting for their chance to be be be given live!

Sometimes we get too preoccupied with our own concerns that we fail to see that there are bigger, more urgent problems in the world. Children like Ronaldo are dying of hunger and untreated diseases. Our money could help save them. Children his age shouldn't have to worry about their next meal..or have to labor..or die of hunger and illness. They should be out playing and know how candies and chocolates taste like. They should have a 'childhood' like the rest of us too. It's disturbing to think that they have to beg for the very things that we throw out. :(

Sponsoring Ronaldo will only cost me about 5 burger meals from McDonald's (a favorite!) but in return, i get to make a child happy..and nothing is as pure as a happy child. I get to deliver hope too, which may be the only thing he's got at the moment. Best of all, I get to let him know that God loves him and He hasn't forgotten about him.

Let's pay it forward. We all have been blessed. Let us not live for our selves alone. Let us not live for our families and friends alone. Let us not live for our countries alone. Let us live for the world.
