I volunteered for Kidsave International (www.kidsave.org) for the last two years, and it is the most deserving charity for several reasons. The most important reason is that there are no other organizations that are advocating for the generation of older children in Eastern Europe who, because of communist economic ruin, are being deposited at orphanages in droves. These children have virtually no chance of a life after they are put out on the street with only the clothes on their back at 16 years of age. Most go into prostitution, crime, or simply commit suicide. If it is hard for the average person there, how much harder for an orphan with no family or skills? Second, it is run by volunteers and people who are not making money off of it, so the bulk of the money actually goes to finding these older children good homes. They rely totally on donations. Please make the truly Foolish choice of donating money to this unique and extremely worthy charity.
