In my constant quest for something interesting to post on our blog, I began doing internet searches and found this one. I must say that I'm delighted beyond words to finally find something that I'm not copying from someone else's blog (maybe I am and have never seen theirs). This is the organization founded by Bono....
One of the reasons that I loved this website which I've added to my links section under "DATA" is that it shows maps and issues around different parts of Africa. More than that, it shows facts and gives success stories. It's refreshing to see that the world is helping them and it's making a difference. It's going to take a heck of a long time, but there is alot of hope when you realize the individuals, countries, and monies that are being made available to Africa and that so many people are stepping up to the plate big time - especially the U.S.A.
Please take a few minutes of your time and if you visit the site. The interactive maps and the success stories were wonderfully easy to use and very informative. This organization is helping to change the face of a continent - one country at a time. Awareness is only the first step, the second step is either doing something, anything to help (even giving during the American Idol "Idol Gives Back") or teaching someone else around you the facts. It's a small world and you never know what impact you could have....... until you try.
Thanks for reading -
