It is all very well saying that you can’t save everyone, that the world’s injustices are too big, so why bother?
The thing is that these days you can help just by clicking a button or following a link.

I sat down and worked out how many people are directly dependent on me and my (less than awe-inspiring) salary. My three children, my helper, her son and daughter, her mother, her sister, my gardener, his brother, his two children.
That’s eleven people who rely directly on me. Eleven people whose lives I affect every month. Add to that the people who rely on them and you get an ever-widening circle of influence.

Hannes needs only R550 to reach his sponsorship goal. That’s only about 50 US dollars.
Instead of going down to Starbucks and ordering a double tall skinny macchiato, why not give it to a child who just might give you a better return on investment than you could have imagined.
The odds are better than playing the lottery.
You can’t change the world. But you can change the world of one child.
