Have you heard of the TrashCanKidz? This is a program - yes, a program - about which I only recently became aware. My daughter has Solo, one of the CarryMeKidz. It's a soft, rag-type doll that she really adores.
In a nutshell, here's what TrashCanKidz is all about:
An "ambassador" (your child and you) buys a CarryMeKidz doll, which is designed to represent an orphaned or vulnerable child. Twenty percent of the money goes toward improving the lives of orphaned or less fortunate children around the world. When you refer others to the program, and they purchase dolls using your ambassador code, you rack up points to earn another doll at no cost to you.
There are far more children living on the streets than most people realize. When my son served with a missions group in Mombasa a couple of years ago, he found there were children living alone on the streets all over the city. Many other parts of the country are the same. Jesus said that, "Whenever you've done it unto the least of these, you've done it unto Me." Matthew 25:40
If we can do something to help those who cannot help themselves, we should. My daughter's ambassador code is: 1318031356. If you're interested in purchasing a CarryMeKidz, you can use that code.
You can also play the free online game, TrashCanKidz, where you can really "clean up" the neighborhood.
