Today's post from SueBob really spoke to me:
I am going to ask for help with one of my favorite projects. Women for Women International is a sponsorship organization that started in Bosnia and spread to other war-torn areas of the world.
For $27 a month, you get matched with a woman somewhere in the world who needs help. You support her and send her letters while she goes through a structured program to get back on her feet. If you are lucky, you may get letters back. The organization provides the translation services.
My goal is to convince 10 women to become sponsors before the end of the year.
Please let me know if you decide to sponsor. Even if you can't afford to do that, please consider a link over here to help me and these women out.
I belong to Soroptimist International, which is associated with this group, but my particular club is pretty focused on helping local women. This seemed like the perfect chance to branch out and help someone who can really benefit from an amount of money that I can save by foregoing a daily Red Bull from the vending machine at work. I signed up immediately.
If you decide to participate, let SueBob know.
