I don't normally badger my friends for charitable donations, but this one I trust because my mom and dad personally spend their days in retirement helping out underpriviledged kids....

VIDYA the NGO my mom volunteers for helps underprivileged children in India get educated, so that they may build a future for themselves in spite of dire adversity, and in the process help lift their families and communities from abject poverty.

My mom and dad spend their days working with children whose parents are too poor to buy them milk or send them to a free school - for these families, sending a child to a sweat shop is a preferable alternative, as the child might at least earn some money to help feed the family.

They've been given the opportunity to raise funds on Global Giving. My mom asked me to share this with my friends on Google+, and so, like any good son would, I am sharing this with all of you....

My parents and the volunteers who work with them have been given the challenge of raising US $5,000 in the calender month of December from at least 40 different donors. If they succeed then they can continue to use the services of Global Giving and their website and reach to raise funds in the future.

Should they fail, they will be denied that privilege.

My request to you is to use the link below and share it with your Google+ circles or on any other social channel you prefer, with a suitable recommendation and appeal to all of your friends in the USA to help..

Any donations made on 10th December of US$25 and above will be matched by a contribution of  15% of sums donated by Global Giving. 

So pls pls pls. get your friends to give to VIDYA in this season of festivities.

It will give some very underprivileged children a chance to better their lives and in the process better the lives of their family and also the  community they live in.

In Nigeria, best to avoid the courts unless (a) the judge is a close relative, or (b) you're prepared to spend money.
