Help us to sponsor a child

I've been back from Niger for a couple of weeks now and I've been blown away by the support for #ShareNiger from my fellow bloggers and the national media. 
One lady in particular, Merry from Patch of Puddles has made it her personal mission to help some of the children of Niger and I'm asking you to help too.
We are asking you to donate £1 to our World Vision sponsor a child appeal. £1 that you probably won't miss but will change the life of a child in Niger.
Please read Merry's post for information on how you can donate and you will be included in all updates from the child / children that we help out in Niger.

How World Vision child sponsorship works...

World Vision believe the best way to change a child's life is to change the world in which they live. And the best way to change their world is to help their community to become self-sustaining. This is what World Vision Child Sponsorship does.
By sponsoring a child you will help to bring about long-term benefits to the child, their family and community. Child sponsorship funds are used with the co-operation and direction of the community to benefit vulnerable children, families and community members, including sponsored children. This work ensures that the community will be able to provide the children with the basics they need, which helps them to grow up in a healthy environment and have the chance for a better future. Child sponsorship enables you to make a positive and real difference to the life of the child you sponsor within their family and community, and gain an insight into the reality of life in developing countries.

Don't think that saving these children is someone else's problem because it isn't.

  1. You are an inspiration Sian and I am so please to be helping a little.

  2. Joint effort all the way Merry. You have been such a support to the campaign and I'm pleased that we have gotten to know each other through it. x

  3. As a family we have wanted to sponsor a child for a long time but alongside our other charity commitments its just not possible. This is just ideal for us and I'm so pleased to be sponsoring a child with three other bloggers. 


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. Appreciated as always. xx
