I have been committed to helping those in need for as long as I can remember. When I was 10 years old, I tried to sponsor a child through Christian Children's Fund -- donating my 50-cent-a-week allowance (unitl my mom found out, and didn't mail the application for me -- she saved it though and showed me years later). At some times I am able to do more, and sometimes less.
Aside from various local charities I donate to, I am committed to my former church's mission in Sierra Leone, Africa. Right now, my main priority is getting a child his epilepsy medication for the year. The medicine is unavailable in S.L.
I help in whatever small ways I can, hoping that it will make some difference. I wish I could help more, but I do what I can.
