Charity begins at home and generally it is the nature of women to be caring and compassionate.  Although money is often tight there are opportunities to contribute and support…

Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children around the world.

Britain’s Princess Anne is their very active Patron.

When disaster strikes around the world, Save the Children is there to save lives with food, medical care and education and remains to help communities rebuild through long-term recovery programs. As quickly and as effectively as Save the Children responds to tsunamis and civil conflict, it works to resolve the ongoing struggles children face every day — poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease — and replaces them with hope for the future.’

Save the Children is a truly global charity working in over 120 countries across the globe. It was founded in 1919 and whilst its mission and actions have changed over the years, its vision is the same “a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.”

There are lots of ways to help Save the Children in its mission. You can donate, money is essential in meeting their objectives. You can fundraise. What is also essential to the mission of Save the Children is campaigning.

Save the Children actively use bloggers and those who use Twitter to campaign, and currently in the UK Save the Children are encouraging all of us to join in #nameaday, encouraging David Cameron the British Prime Minister, to host a world hunger summit.

In Australia, Save the Children encourage us all to give just $1 on Wednesday 25th July 2012 and we will remind our Australian readers closer to the time.

In the US Save the Children has a child sponsorship programme, where you can sponsor a child in the US or abroad.  Looking after all children, regardless of where they live in the world, is important to Save the Children and us too.
