Help Feed needy Children in America. - May 31, 2009

Much praise is in order for our new President for his tedious, arduous efforts in
Fixing our faltering economy. His efforts are timely, appropriate, and necessary.
However, our children will have to suffer the consequence of this “necessary evil”.
Not to mention disadvantaged families affected by this sagging economy today.
Instead of reaching out to children around the world, which is a good thing, we
Need to concentrate on our own American families. The children are our future.
There are many charities one can find. If you really want to invest in our
Country find one. If you are one who can help. I have chosen feed the Children
As my point of action. If you are having trouble finding one, then consider
Feed the children. Check out the site, maybe you’ll appreciate Them as well. I’m sure God will bless you. Peace!
