Spread the Joy
Christmas is a time for giving. It’s a time to open one’s door to the needy. It’s a time to donate meals to the homeless shelter. Giving back to those less fortunate is the true spirit of Christmas.
According to the National Center on Family Homelessness, 2.5 million children are homeless in America. Women Aid International presents a horrific figure of 100 million worldwide. As a result, homeless children fall prey to abuse, exploitation, and trafficking, as well as, depression and mental illness.
As global citizens we need to ask ourselves: Why are so many children homeless? What needs to be done to alleviate children from being homeless? To shed light on the former, they’re homeless because of poverty, displacement, and lack of affordable housing. Substance abuse, unemployment, and single parenting also factor in.
To help in the fight against homelessness and human trafficking, please donate.
