6 CURRENT ISSUES

You can make a huge difference... with just one, small gesture.
A letter, a phone call, sharing information with a friend.
There's someone, small and lost somewhere, counting on it.
 
     
A HIV - positive orphan girl sits with a glass of milk at Nyumbani hospice in Nairobi December 13, 2004 where 94 HIV-positive abandoned orphans are staying. Some 1.9 million children under 15 are living with HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the latest State of the World's Children report by the United Nations. The agency estimates that by 2010 more than 18 million African children will have lost one or more parents to AIDS unless swift action is taken. REUTERS/Radu Sigheti A young Afghan boy walks near the Pakistan-Afghan border area at Torkham, some 180 km northwest of Islamabad, scavenging for food and items of value September 15, 2001. Pakistan said on Saturday it would comply with all U.N. resolutions that seek to combat "international terrorism", but its military was unlikely to take part in operations beyond its border. REUTERS/Aziz Haidari This sad little female monkey lovingly, tenderly embraces a puppy at a shop in the Bangladesh capital, Dhaka. The pet monkey, bought from an animal trader, "adopted" the puppy recently, spending many hours hugging it. Hunting and selling of monkeys are prohibited under Bangladesh laws but such laws are seldom enforced. Her face, filled with sadness and loneliness, illustrates how deeply monkeys feel. Their depth of emotion, capacity for sorrow, and ability to love are similar to those of humans.

The fingers of malnourished one-year-old Alassa Galisou are pressed against the lips of his mother Fatou Ousseini at an emergency feeding clinic in the town of Tahoua in northwestern Niger, August 1, 2005. Torrential rain promising a better harvest in Niger threatens to slow aid deliveries to many of the millions of hungry people in desperate need of help before their crops ripen, aid workers said on Monday. One of Niger's worst droughts in living memory destroyed much of last October's crop, leaving an estimated 3.6 million people short of food, including tens of thousands of starving children who could die without urgent assistance.

A friend will be visiting Thailand and then Africa to work with orphans.  Another friend has already gone many times. We asked him, "what should one bring to the children? Clothes? Toys? Material goods?"

He answered, "What the  children most need, is, believe it or not... love. They often times have only one caretaker for quite a few children."

How can one send love to orphans around the world? Your ideas, please!

Our ideas:

1. Write a loving, warm and caring letter. You will be the 
representative of the best of America. 
Ask questions. Perhaps enclose a picture with a plain background.  Send your kind thoughts. Your best wishes. Your curious questions. Send words of love and appreciation.
 
2. Enclose your three American craft items.
Make sure they are small. Something you made. Something you spent time to find.
 
3. Mail it to our PO Box. We will forward it. If you include your address, we will forward you anthing a child may wish to send you.
 
4. That's it! You're done. You just sent an American letter of love to a precious orphan in this world.  

5. If you wish a response, include a self-addressed stamped envelope to a post office box. Do NOT use your home or business address. If you receive a response, it is IMPERATIVE that you respond back...  

"Let your yes be yes, and your no, be no."

Think long and hard about your level of commitment. Children will be waiting.

Laws We Need to Change
Cigarette burns on child prostitutes no longer a crime.
Unbelievable...
Right across the border, 2 laws were passed that will shock. Cigarette burns that disappear on children within 15 days are no longer a criminal offense.
http://www.10news.com/

Pedophiles, who look for children, will no longer be imprisoned.  Rather, they will be fined a mere, $25.00.

What one can do:

1. Contact your Congress by
writing a letter and making a
telephone call -

THE CRUELTY OF
FOIE GRAS -
FORCE FEEDING SICK DUCKS
 
WWW.JLODOWN.COM
 
Animals are being skinned while still conscious.
 
For any reason, avoid fur.
Tell your friends, family, about the horror of fur.
 
Celebrities have unique power. Because of their popularity, they are revered and looked up to as examples for others. Jennifer Lopez's use of fur makes a statement that use of animal fur is okay.
 
Please kindly and respectfully ask her to reconsider her position. Today, the collection of animal fur involves deep cruelty. 
 
Terrified foxes are electrocuted through their anus. Little racoons and other fur creatures are hit with a bat, hung by their legs with their fur fiercely torn from their living bodies with a man's full weight. Their small legs are pulled, torn, while they live and struggle. Their agony is indescribable.

So, above all, avoid the use of live animal fur.  

HERE ARE SUGGESTIONS ON WHERE TO OBTAIN FUR SUBSTITUTES:

Laboratory and medical research using animal experimentation and testing is often times extraneous and unnecessary.

The repetitive cruelty often defies description, and the agony that the animals go through is worse than imaginable. Why? They can experience such severe nausea and pain from poisonings that they tear their own flesh, possibly to self destruct. They sway, scream, moan, unless their vocal cords are removed.

Dogs often have their vocal cords removed because of their cries, moans, whimpering. 

They cower in abject fear and terror, and lose their minds. 

All humane rights for birds, rats and mice were taken away in Congress.  These animals are fully feeling and sentient. Please encourage your Congress people to restore rights to these innocent, vulnerable and thinking animals.

      PROOF:  FOIE GRAS VIDEO 

The thought of torturing animals for food is not acceptable. 

Ducks, who are both sensitive and loving, live intensely miserable lives of constant nausea without ability to move, eventually finding it difficult to breathe because of their diseased liver condition.  Please avoid consuming Foie Gras.

PROOF:  CBS Article HERE

Study: Eating Foie Gras May Raise Risk of Alzheimer's, Diabetes And Other Diseases

"Aside from suggesting a link between foie gras and disease, researchers say the results also raise the possibility that other prion or abnormal protein-related diseases like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease may be passed from affected animal food products to humans."

What is Foie Gras?
  

The foie gras is the sick liver of a bird with hepatic steatosis, a severe fatty liver disease.
Scientific report/ratio of the European Commission

More than 30 million birds are force fed for the production of Foie Gras each year in France. The majority are locked up out of cages of battery so narrow that they can hardly move. One inserts a metal tube in their throat directly to the stomach. 

Their liver becomes enormous. They suffer great pain even in breathing alone, have severe diarrhea, exhaustion. They most likely live with horrible, constant nausea; surrounded by their own vomit.

More than one million in France alone die from weakness, wounding, anguish.

"Aside from suggesting a link between foie gras and disease, researchers say the results also raise the possibility that other prion or abnormal protein-related diseases like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease may be passed from affected animal food products to humans."

At all cost, avoid Foie Gras.
 
What Else One Can Do:
Urge restaurants and stores that sell foie gras to stop selling it and to sell vegetarian pâté instead; vegetarian brands, such as Bonavita, are often sold alongside liver pâtés in grocery stores. Organize demonstrations at restaurants and stores where foie gras is sold.

 We are a dedicated group of individuals who want, above much else, to be of 
 service to those who are most innocent - children and animals. We also support 
others in need as well; the gentle homeless, those who are in despair, those in need
of food, water, shelter, warmth, hope, peace and a means to find security, happiness
and a life of giving and sharing.

 are used directly for those in need. We are homebased in San Diego County, CA., USA.

prayers, acts and deeds of generosity and kindness, miracles can occur.
The power of one, can change the lives of many.

Our actions are to directly help and provide assistance to those in need,
as well as to help guide people to find a way to help and contribute.
We believe that giving and receiving work in concert. Those who receive, 
are blessed by those who give to them. Those who give, are blessed, by the
mere act of giving.  For those who give, their cup will runneth over.

"It is through giving,
that one finds, true living."


Teaching
Teaching children to receive, but also, equally importantly, teaching children to give,
is a gift of a lifetime. Living creatures, both human and animal, find their greatest 
joy in the acts of loving, sharing, giving.

With the love of others around them, a child's heart will grow and swell so that they 
will overflow with good and loving things. These good and loving things will in 
turn, flow to other children around them. And so it goes.  Join us. Help the children.
Cherish and protect every living creature. 


Bless you!

This little homeless boy is being held behind bars in Cambodia, most likely an orphan refugee. He is lonely, abandoned, without family. The photographer was traveling in Cambodia, cronologuing his journey.   This little girl is one of the many homeless in Cambodia, who collects trash in the hopes of selling it for a few pennies, most likely for food.  This sad little female monkey lovingly, tenderly embraces a puppy at a shop in the Bangladesh capital, Dhaka. The pet monkey, bought from an animal trader, "adopted" the puppy recently, spending many hours hugging it.
This little girl is one of the many homeless in Cambodia, who collects trash in the hopes of selling it for a few pennies, most likely for food. If she is very unlucky, she may be taken by slave traders and sold as a child prostitute. Her life will be short and miserable... never knowing love, constantly living in fear and abject despair. They say such children become a shell, dying of disease and heartbreak. There are hundreds of thousands children in slavery around the world.
