#24DaysofKindness: Day 14
With 14 days down, I keep thinking I’m running out of ideas. And like everyone right now, my time is short. Mounting to-dos before Christmas. Battling horrendous commutes. Demands from every direction. It’s no wonder I – we – feel stressed.
But that’s nothing even close to what some others have to deal with – on a daily basis.
In a minute’s break today I chose to have a look at The Guardian. I could have sworn every article on their homepage spoke of doom, gloom and misery. Then I saw this story. A way to help some of the people so desperately in need right now – child refugees.
Three charities will benefit from the fundraising The Guardian are doing:
- Help Refugees. Who, in The Guardian’s words, “bring a refreshing vitality and energy to the provision of emergency humanitarian aid.”
- Safe Passage. Who, again in The Guardian’s words, “help provide legal support to hundreds of unaccompanied refugee children.”
- The Children’s Society. Who, once more in The Guardian’s words, “provide a range of services from legal advice to help youngsters access education and housing, to language lessons, social activities and mentoring.”
