Think there’s no way you can stick to your resolution of donating to charity on your meager budget? Think again! Even a couple cents can help save the life of a child.
There is a great organization called Planting Peace (www.plantingpeace.org) that is helping to save the lives of children around the world. Their groundbreaking de-worming project, “Stomp The Worm”, is helping to cure the vast number of Haitian children suffering from intestinal parasites. Left untreated, these parasites have a devastating effect on the physical and mental health of the children.
Through research and development, Planting Peace has brought the cost of treating an individual down to just 1.7 CENTS per treatment! They purchase medication directly from pharmaceutical companies at a very discounted price – allowing them to de-worm 250 children for less than the cost of a pack of cigarettes!
The Planting Peace de-worming initiative literally let’s you put in your ‘2 cents worth’ to save a child’s life.
Donations can be mailed to: Planting Peace PO Box 221951, Hollywood, FL 33022. To donate online or for more information, please check out www.plantingpeace.org.| Print
