Making a Difference

They say that if you give a man a fish he can eat
but if you teach him how to fish he will live.

What about a child?
If you teach them that they can make a difference
What does that do?

Carrie, who has been a good friend of this blog,
has a nine year old son, Wyatt.
Wyatt wants to give money to children in Africa.
He has set up a website for donations
and started the fund with his own pocket money.

The charity he has chosen is
The Open Arms Home for Children
and already he has raised enough money
to make a real contribution
to their work in South Africa.

What will this mean to Wyatt?
He has learned that he can make a difference,
even though he is only nine.
It is a lesson he will remember all his life.

And who knows what he will do in the future?

If you feel that you would like to help Wyatt
contribute to this worthwhile charity
he will be grateful for every single dollar.

Thanks, Alice, for letting us know. And have a nice, restful Sunday.

Adults can always learn more from chidlren than we can teach them. We just have to remember to stop and listen.

Thank you Alice, from the bottom of my heart. Your kind words mean a lot and sending folks in Wyatt's direction is more of a gift than he could imagine.

Thank you, for this, friend. :)
