Last week a few of my very good blogging friends spent a few days to a place near and dear to my heart.
The Dominican Republic.
World Vision took a team of bloggers to the Dominican Republic. If you’d like to read about the impact that it had on their lives and hearts, you can find a list of all the posts on the World Vision in the Dominican Republic’s Facebook Page. If you are on Twitter, you can also find many of their posts on the #WVinDR stream.
I spent quite a bit of time reading through the bloggers’ posts and thought I would share these with you.
Andrea’s Smiles are Universal
Matthew’s Slum Temptations
Amanda’s It’s a Small World After All
Briana’s Same Dreams
Jessica’s Etched in My Mind
There is so much poverty and filth in the Dominican Republic. But you can help.
I know we are all on tight budgets these days. But, my challenge to you would be this: Clip a few extra coupons, forgo soda for a few weeks, cross off a “luxury” item from your grocery list, whatever it takes to come up with $35/month. That’s all it takes to sponsor a child, get them a shirt to wear, an education and a hot meal. Take what you save and give!
It might not seem like much to you, but when you live in this…
it’s like a little taste of heaven.
If you are interested in learning more about sponsoring a child in the Dominican Republic, head on over to learn more about the children needing sponsors.
