Since I started blogging almost two years ago, I noticed that many people from all over the world visits and reads my blog. Today, I am going to talk to my Canadian readers specifically. Many of us go through life our daily lives without having to worry about basic everyday things. When we are hungry, we head over to the refrigerator and take out a snack to eat. When we are thirsty, we just get ourselves a refreshing glass of water. We do not have to worry if there is enough food to be placed on the table for our next meal or if we can get clean water. We just take all this things for granted.

Did you know that everyday day in the poorest regions of the world, 25,000 children under 5 die because they lack access to things we take for granted. Yes, I am talking about clean water, sanitation, medicine, and food. Things that we see and use daily in our lives. Shocking statistics, isn't it? What can you do to help, you might ask? Well, you can start by visiting the Plan Canada website and sponsor a child today. By sponsoring a child, you can help an entire community of children leave poverty behind. Yes, you can make that change - one child at a time. For as little as $35 a month, you can invest in grassroots programs that will help local people build schools, train teachers, empower girls, dig wells, run health clinics, start small businesses and so much more. Think about it. You would normally spend about $35 on a fast food dinner for a family of four. It's not that much money to you but it will mean a whole lot to that child. Also, when you sponsor a child, you’ll receive a photograph of the child with his/her family, information about the community as well as an annual update. You and your family will also have a chance to reach out to the community through the exchange of photos and letters, thus creating a lasting bond of friendship with a child and family in the developing world. So what are you waiting for? Here is your chance to do something that will make a difference in our world. Remember, change starts with one child. Do your part and plan to change the world by sponsoring a child today!
