WORLD VISION

My child, Celestine

I am honored to say that I have partnered with World Vision, an amazing organization that provides basic necessities to people in every part of the world. This global Christian organization serves all people in need regardless of religious affiliation.  Their efforts serve all people regardless of race and gender.

Through World Vision, I recently became the sponsor of 8 year old Celestine from the Democratic Republic of Congo.  Knowing that the small donation I make each month goes a long way toward providing the food, water and assistance her community desperately needs, made me realize that I can make a difference!

Last year, 86% of World Vision’s total operating expenses were used for programs that directly benefit children, families and communities in need.  It’s encouraging to know that my donation is in good hands with World Vision.  I am especially excited to see Celestine and her community’s progress, as I hope to some day visit her in person.

Thank you World Vision for inviting me to become a part of this special humanitarian organization, and I encourage all of you to find out more about how YOU can help change the world!
