OK, it has been a while, but it's the holiday season and I did make some donations in the past few weeks that would hopefully make meaningful differences in the lives of a few.
One charity that I'd like to mention is a very special charity I just discovered this year: Children of Vietnam. COV provides care for the poor, sometimes poor and disabled, children of Vietnam. I really like the approach they take to help these children. Their field staff and volunteers evaluate the situation of individual families and create a care plan tailored for their specific needs. The care plan is pretty comprehensive, covering everything from nutrition, medicare procedure, family housing, to access to micro-loans and education. Their goal is to help these families get out of the cycle of poverty and provide a brighter future to these children. Our donation to COV this year will help provide access to education for some of these kids.
