There are many great charitable organizations and causes to which you can contribute. This website covers a couple of Derrick Pedranti’s favorites. For each of us it’s important to give some time and resources to help make this a better world. We all have daily obligations but even a little bit of effort can help make a big impact. I hope that you will consider World Vision and The Dream Center as worthwhile investments.
World Vision is one of the most prominent Christian charities providing aid and relief worldwide. Right now they are helping people in almost 100 countries fight hunger and poverty regardless of their religious beliefs. They also offer child sponsorships to help provide relief to impoverished kids around the globe. Currently my family and I sponsor two children through World Vision — one in India and the other in Africa.
The Dream Center provides food and needed supplies to the homeless and others in need and helps rehabilitate released prisoners. I have had the fortunate experience of volunteering my time to The Dream Center distributing food and needed supplies to the less fortunate in downtown Los Angeles. It was a life-changing experience for me. I had the opportunity to experience a loving connection with those living outside of my community and touch people’s lives in a positive way.
I pray you will give these valuable organizations some consideration.
