(Lisa Baek, July 15, 2016)
Money is money.
Even a little change for us can make a big change for others.
A little change for kids with lymphoma or leukemia can get them chemotherapy.
A little change for others with melanoma can use the money for surgery.
A little change for kids with diabetes, money can afford treatment and medicine.
A little change for families that escaped fires, money can buy temporary housing and daily necessities.
A little change for families that don’t have jobs, money can hire agencies to help them find work.
A little change for communities that have people that can’t read can start up literacy programs.
A little change for communities without medical care can bring health back to its residents and create a healthy community.
A little change for communities that went through natural disasters can help rebuild a community.
