As a child…

…I wasn’t born in poverty, though I did have to wear hand-me-down clothes once in a while. Not because I needed to, but because my father was cheap.

As a child…

…I wasn’t lacking clean water or food, though my mom refused to buy me Kool-Aid because it contained too much sugar.

As a child…

…I wasn’t in need of a child sponsorship through World Vision, though I could suck in my stomach so much that people were able to see my internal organs. And that did garner me a fair amount of attention.

As a child…

He or she needs you.

World Vision needs you.
