Impoverished Kids in South Africa!

"For millions of people in Southern Africa - where more than 40% of the population is believed to survive on less than $1 a day - each day is shaped by the extreme conditions of hunger, disease and despair."

Just $10.00 can feed four children for an entire week in South Africa. What seems like not much for us, is literally life changing to these children.

My name is Tara Meade and I will be volunteering at an orphanage for one month in Cape Town, South Africa. I will be participatng in the Dreams To Reality "Childcare program". This program places volunteers into daycares with children that are in desperate need of help. Although I will only be there physically for 4 weeks, my hope is to make the biggest impact possible on these children's lives. I hope that you will help me!

There is an endless list of supplies that these children could benefit greatly from. Things that you and I might take for granted such as Vitamins, Play-Doh, coloring books, clean clothes, etc. Are hard to come by for these young children. This is where I ask for your help!

I am fortunate to be able to pay for my trip in it's entirety with the help of my family. Because of this, I can assure you that ANY and ALL money raised on this page will go directly towards providing necessary supplies for the children and the orphanage itself.

Even one dollar helps! Thank you for taking the time to read my page and I hope you find it in your heart to donate to what I feel is an extremely important cause!
