Not too long ago I was able to win a music DVD for myself and a $40 donation to Bright Future International.    I ran across a question that someone was asking, “why not American Children?”  Here is some of my response. “I know I have heard so many times by people that we should help those in our own country first but I believe that we are ALL gods people not just Americans. I wish more people understood that!) (It is nice to see an organization to help in the United States as well but I have never seen where god said that his people only resided in one country. I have been taught since I was a toddler "Jesus loves the little children of the WORLD" That is just the way I see it.” 

With that being said we all know that I am really touched by people helping people.  I was recently asked to look over a campaign for future fortified and let Mom central know if I would be interested in writing a blog post on it.  
I looked over the material and learned that Future fortified is a small packet of vitamins and minerals that can be sprinkled onto food to provide essential nutrients to women and children that would otherwise not have access to healthy food.  People donate money to them and they make the packets available to women and children at an affordable price.   If you would like more information feel free to check out these links.
