I want you to meet three special girls: Zinhle from Swaziland, Sasha from Russia, and Tulsi from India. You can read more about their stories here.

For the past several months, we’ve shared the stories of these girls. With over 163 million orphans and vulnerable children in the world, it is sometimes easy to lose track of the individual faces and stories.

Worse, we can start to believe that the problem is so big, and we are so small, that our contributions don’t matter.

They matter.

They matter not just because I think they do. But because small gifts from people like you have actually changed lives forever. As we approach Christmas, I invite you to read more about Zinhle, Sasha, and Tulsi.

Each of these girls faced horrifying circumstances that no child should face.

But because someone like you decided to act their lives are now changed forever.  Read more about Zinhle, Sasha, and Tulsi, and consider how you and your family can change a story with a gift this Christmas.
