I recently learned about a new charity for children called Bright Futures International. A new program was just launched this month called Bright Future for Children. It’s a worldwide initiative to raise money and awareness for less fortunate children across the globe. With the simple act of “liking” their Facebook page, $1 will be donated to helping children in Kenya, Burundi and Russia. Seems easy, doesn’t it?
Bright Futures for Children’s goal is to help underprivileged children achieve a better future by infusing them with compassion, strong self esteem and hope. I read several stories on the BFI website, and I found Ginet’s story touching. At 14, Ginet was forced out of the home she was living in and onto the streets. Ginet was pregnant.
Luckily for Ginet, she found the program, Heshima Kenya. Heshima Kenya is the first organization in Kenya dedicated to protecting and educating orphaned and separated refugee children and youth, with a special focus on supporting adolescent girls living in Nairobi. Heshima Kenya’s shelter, education, and community outreach programming, coupled with the refugee community, empower these girls and young women to live happy and healthy lives.
There are other stories like Ginet’s out there and don’t forget the impact BFI is making in Russia and Burundi too. Children deserve to have hope and high self-esteems. That’s why your simple “LIKE” on their Facebook page is so important.
BFI is committed to funding social and educational programs for children around the world. Take a moment, and “like” the Bright Futures International Facebook page to donate $1. Then share this page with your readers if you blog, or on Facebook and Twitter and ask others to do the same, because every dollar makes a difference.
