Kudos to Just Posts

Kudos to the Just Post Roundtable participants who for the last six months have written posts to promote social justice.

If you’ve read my blog, you know I frequently travel to developing countries and my heart is with those in the world most in need. I’ve seen the face of AIDS in Africa. I’ve been through orphanages and know there are children living in households on their own.

This month, Jen’s Just Post on One Plus Two calls on us to give to Open Arms, which is in South Africa and “exists solely to allow children orphaned by AIDS to have the chance to grow up and thrive and become future leaders, mothers, fathers and inhabitants of their village, a village that is being ravaged by AIDS in a country being ravaged by AIDS.”

You can read most about Open Arms on their website and on Jen’s blog. I want to add my voice to Jen’s in saying let’s step up, and help this nonprofit out this month. It costs about $100 to raise each child per month, and they’ve currently got 11 kids. Please do what you can to support those kids.

$100 for a whole month for one child. How cheap is that?
