It is fun and educational to exchange letters, hopes and dreams, as well. Organizations that are well respected that our family has enjoyed working with, and still do, are Compassion International and Children International. These organizations and others like them are financially accountable and donations are tax deductible in many cases. So, I suggest to those who truly care about making a difference to children around the world that they stop pointing fingers and do something positive. Please look up one of these organizations on the web and sponsor a child. It is a wonderful class, club or church project as well. Surely families and nonprofits have always worked more effectively than government in helping people in need. The often spiteful dialogue between the points of view of what the government should be doing in the current immigration debate might soften if each one of us took a personal time and economic investment, a personal sacrifice, and hopefully a prayer-filled one, to help just one child, just one family, and rise above name-calling and political opportunity.
