The head of the U.N. refugee agency said Sunday that drought-ridden Somalia is the “worst humanitarian disaster” in the world after meeting with refugees who endured unspeakable hardship to reach the world’s largest refugee camp.
In the past 2 weeks I have given you ideas on how to give to help the people in The Horn of Africa. What if I gave you a way to give food for free. Your donation is just one click away. Will you give every day?
Day 321: Give 321
If you could choose just one way to give every day what would it be? Volunteerism? Philanthropy by donation? A Random Act of Kindness?
What if today I could give you one way to help the starving and dieing people in The Horn of Africa and it didn’t cost you a thing? You don`t even have to get up out of your seat to give. What if all you have to do is click and 1.1 cups of food is donated. What if you did it every day? How many cups of food could we provide if we all clicked every day? A cup of food may not seem like a lot to you right now but it could save a life – if you click to give every day.
I clicked to give and I will keep clicking to give food everyday for as long as the The Hunger Site gives me the opportunity.

Watch this video of Dave Deppner founder of Trees for the Future. He will change the way you think about trees, our forests and all the life that needs them to survive – people and animals. He’s captivating and will help you understand in simple terms why we must help replant our forests. You won’t beable to say no to him – I wasn’t.
Today my give is to help be part of the solution to save our planet.
“Since 1989, Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and our country programs, we have empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations.” Trees for the Future.
There is so much I could say about deforestation. I could list ways it has changed our planet, how people are suffering and dying because of it, how it is changing our future – but I won’t. It’s not new news. It’s not anything we haven’t heard before but instead I will offer you a way to help be a part of the solution. A way we can all help today to rebuild a part of our world that will help solve many of these problems.
10₵ will get one tree planted through Trees for the Future. It will help villages as they learn about sustainability, it will help grow food, feed animals and bring back wildlife that had disappeared. Trees for the Future has already planted 50 million trees and they are still counting. They need our support to be part of the solution.
With just $10.00 I planted 100 trees today. I am already breathing easier knowing I am doing something today to be the change I want to see in the world. What will you do?
Time Commitment: 3 minutes to make an online donation
Cost: $10.00 + 100 trees

Click to Give is a site that allows you to click and they give. With help from their advertising sponsors each click equals dollars that go directly to the featured charity in each category.
I chose to help sponsor a child today. This is the part I really liked. I got to know the child’s name, age, country and a few personal details. I have taken a excerpt directly from the site so you can see how you can help a real, live child. I know exactly who I am helping and where the money is going to provide the support she needs:
Birth Date: 4 May 2005
Favorite subject: Drawing
Romina G lives in Ecuador with her mother only and her favorite game is playing with dolls.
Mother’s work: Household helper
Children in Romina G’s community face many challenges. The level of education among adults is low and many children do not attend school due to a lack of resources. Children are often malnourished, which affects their learning and leaves them susceptible to diseases like dengue fever and malaria. Community health is vulnerable to environmental pollution, which is a problem in the area. health and education services are basic, with inadequate staff numbers and training. Poverty, unemployment and migration have led to youth problems, gangs and social violence.
By sponsoring we are helping to provide Romina and her community:
- Adult education and vocational training programs*Training in new income generating activities
- Building materials and educational supplies for schools
- Training in health, nutritional and hygiene
Click to Give will also follow the child’s journey as it happens and show the “clickers” exactly what your clicks have achieved and done for not only the individual child sponsored but the whole community of which they live.
