I love children. Mine. Yours. Even the ones that are sometimes a little harder to love. All of them. It breaks my heart to see the way children live in third world countries- I actually can't watch a world vision advertisement without crying! So I want to do something about it.
After lots of research, I decided that many countries already had a lot of fantastic charities and NGOs assisting, and I love them for that. But I felt rather than jump in where there are already people, I'd spread the love a little further and go somewhere that ISN'T already getting much support.
Hello, DRC! Scary, scary, beyond scary place to live in, especially for a child. It's actually really difficult for organisations to get in and help out here due to the corrupt, war affected and scattered communities. So I'm jumping in, the children here are living in some of the worst conditions imaginable and they need our help.
Next thing you know, I've started a charity! www.smilesforafrica.org
All the products I sell on this site go directly to Smiles For Africa, a registered charity in Australia. You can verify the legitimacy of the charity by searching on the Office of Fair Trading charity register: http://www.qld.gov.au/law/laws-regulated-industries-and-accountability/queensland-laws-and-regulations/check-a-licence-association-charity-or-register/check-a-charity-or-association/
All proceeds are going directly towards purchasing land and building a boarding school for orphans in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In Africa, even a little can go a long way.
Thank you to everyone who is and has supported our cause so far, it warms my heart :)
