The Joy of Giving and Receiving

A shining smile - the picture of pure JOY
A shining smile - the picture of pure JOY

This is what pure joy looks like. Michelle is a little "Live and Learn in Kenya Int'l Kid" living in the slums of Nakuru, Kenya. Her sponsor paid for Christmas presents - food and the dress she is wearing in the photo. Sometimes a little can go a VERY long way. Little Michelle will NEVER forget today - and neither will her sponsor after receiving this photo.

Knowing that the funds that you donate are truly going to the children on the Live and Learn in Kenya International program is what makes sponsors care even more. It is important for us to take photos and send them along with letters of appreciation to the sponsors and donors. People need to see for themselves what their donations are doing. Whether it is paying for a child's education - uniforms, shoes, learning materials, and free meals - or those "little" extras that make a child's life even more special - just like childhood is supposed to be... special and memorable. That special storybook, a toy car, doll, Sunday best shoes, and a dress or shirt and pants - that's not just feeding a hungry child or providing education - it's gifting a child with a smile that will keep them warm and happy even when times get bad and tummies begin to grumble - because they are given hope for the future and the knowledge that there are people out there who care even if they don't know you personally and most likely never will.

So it doesn't matter if you are sponsoring a certain child or not. The warm feeling of knowing that you are bringing a smile of happiness to a needy child is enough to keep you smiling for a while yourself!

Happy New Year 2021 - may it be a year filled with warm SMILES!
