Why I am supporting Hope's Journey:
We hear on the news almost every day about disasters that impact victims around the world. These natural or man-made disasters affect the lives of thousands of people, including children, women and elders. Because we are human beings, it is our moral obligation to assist these people in need and bring hope again to their families. For me, I have found that the most effective method for helping these people to reclaim their lives is through joining Hope's Journey. Hope's Journey is the best way to distribute school supplies, blankets and other relief goods to those who urgently need them. As we saw during Hope's Journey in Afghanistan, we were able to distribute large amounts of school supplies and other items to thousands of needy and disadvantaged school children in a variety of Afghan communities.
