By the time your done reading this blog, at least 150 children around the world will have died due to poverty.
(According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day because they lack the means to afford proper care).
Their deaths are preventable.
Organizations like the one I work for (Expect Hope) make it their mission to rescue children from poverty and provide them with food, clothing, shelter, access to healthcare, and most importantly, love.
But WHY does your sponsorship matter?
Well, for one, not every country is the United States. Many countries do not have the means to help orphaned children, so many of them end up on the streets, naked and begging for food.
Many of those same children are targeted by terrorist groups like ISIS or Abu Sayyaf who promise them the same things Expect Hope does, but asks them to pay a hefty price; psychological abuse and, at times, sacrificing themselves for the terrorist groups cause.
There is no Child Protective Services to call in many third world countries. There is no Medicaid, no Free or Reduced Lunch, and sometimes, there isn’t even an option for free “public school”.
There are children right at this moment, walking along the streets naked and barefoot, with tummies rumbling, lacking ONE thing above all else; HOPE.
You could bring HOPE to a child today. You can change a life forever.
Some may say “well, $35 a month is a big ask”, but is it really?
My HULU subscription costs more than that.
Taking my family of four to Chipotle just once a month costs more than that.
Buying three new shirts at Ross costs more than that.
The truth is $35 equals to about $1.17 a day. We spend more than that on Starbucks, McDonalds, or whatever brand’s coffee you enjoy.
Think about that. Skipping Starbucks for 8-9 days a month will literally rescue an orphan from property and give them HOPE.
You can literally be someone’s hero for just $35 a month.

Somethings you just don’t have to pray for.
Jesus said when you care for the least of these, you cared for Him.
