This is something different than child loss, but a good cause I think so I'm posting it here for your consideration.
My cousin's kids have started a project called The Big Ball Project. They love soccer and there was a book with photos of kids around the world playing soccer. The kids in Africa did not have a ball- just a bundle of rags. Turns out it costs just $10 to send a ball and a pump to a kid who wants to play. Balls have been sent to Rwanda, Costa Rica and Marakkesh.
For the next 72 hours, they have a donor who will give $1 for every person who 'likes' The Big Ball Project on facebook. Can you take a minute to pop over there and do that?
And if you'd like to donate, just $10 can send a ball and a pump. I will do this this year for part of Gabriel's birthday present.
Wishing you a gentle day,
