Few weeks ago, i had a fundraising yard sale (Vide grainier in Switzerland) for Life-Hope, i had to line up for almost 45 min to get a table. When it was my turn, the man who was in charge serving the tables pulled the wrong one accidentally and two tables fell one after another, to come landing on my foot. For few seconds my foot was numb, then followed an atrocious pain. Lucky me, there was a doctor in the crowd. She looked at it, tried to massage it then finally concluded that one of my toes was broken. She wanted me to go home. People felt sorry for me and some Offered ice cubes to soothe the pain.
But what was amazing is that i didn't feel sorry for myself, i was at that location for a cause, i refused to go Home. I spent time collecting those items to sell and organising myself for this event, no broken toe was going to bring me down. The thaught of the orphans i was doing these sales for kept me strong.
All those hours spent there, i swallowed my pain and decided to do what i went there for, because i knew my sores will pay for. The sales went well, i could not forgive myself if i stopped at the moment i got hurt.
I knew that work was going to give a second chance, and some kids, far away, dream will come true.That feels good. That keeps me going.

Now - next time that happens - spare a quick thought....
What we take for granted on a daily basis (food, a home, education, water etc...) is a dream for most people out in the world. For some people eating bread is luxury. "BREAD" .... a luxury!
If you can try and buy a little less bread (you know - the bread which normally gets thrown away anyway) then afterwards drop a coin in one those charity jars that you see in many places (it doesn't matter which one - a charity to feed the hungry kids, a charity that provide education for vulnerable children... an organisation like Life-Hope, for instance). You might just make some little child's dream of not going to bed hungry come true!
Try not to waste but Give Hope! Every little helps a lot!

The holidays are coming to an end.
Lots of people were fortunate to travel to different places or have good time with families and friends, as well many gave to their children a memorable time. How wonderful is that!
Now think about those children who are not lucky to have such time, because their parents are no longer alive, and who are desperate to find just what to eat and a way to go to school.
It's really sad!
School year is starting again in september, do you think these orphans deserve a chance to go to school? are they gonna make it?
If you think yes, then please! sponsor one of these children today, give them a second chance and an opportunity to face life one day...
For the members who are sponsoring children already, it's about time to send the yearly school fees for them. We have the school results from some of the children that we linked to the website, most of then did well.
For any question, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to all of you.

We are working hard to get this bakery building finished and find a way to start providing bread to poor single parents (widows) so they can sell and have some extra money to take care of the children and as well to give nutritious meal to Life-Hope orphans.
We all have right to a good meal... but these children live on one meal a day, sometimes nothing a day.
We are asking you today to lend a helping hand.
Help us take care of them, your contribution will make an orphan see another day.

This girl is happy. She is 6 years old and happy. One of the reasons she is happy today is that she can go to school. Her mother passed away a while ago. Things are tough at home. But there is someone in Switzerland who was moved to pay about 100 US dollars to allow her to go to school this year. 100USD! Her happiness also comes from just knowing that there is someone....someone she has never met....who cared enough about her to pay that 100 dollars to allow her to continue at school. Life is good. Life is best we are are all engaging in making it better for everyone. Get engaged. Be informed. Give HOPE.
We might not be able to change the world today, but we can change it for one child today. Go on.... do what you know you can do right now.

***I was trying to get back in touch with one of my childhood friends for a long time, but it wasn't easy, Since I left the country, I lost contact with most of my friends, and every time I am able to get in touch with one of them, I feel really good, and try not to break that link again.
Yesterday I managed to talk with one of those friends and asked about another mutual acquaintance.
My friend changed her tone and said sadly, You didn't hear? She died 2 years ago! . The word died, made me break out in a cold sweat.
What terrible news! She was still young with so many plans! I lost control and felt really down. The question of life come again into my head! This girl had it all, beautiful, accomplished, wonderful marriage and children plus a lovely husband and a career.
But it was her time, and we cannot argue with Death when it comes it comes, We are not special we who are still here on earth. But there is a purpose : we have a mission to accomplish.
The question is, have we found ours? How are we living our lives? If we leave this world today, are we going to rejoice while people cry? Let?s stop going through life without purpose or direction. We have to answer the calling and do something that someone will always keep in their heart. Please share hope?
My friend left, but I will always cherish our sweet memories that remain alive in my heart!***
