World Vision

| February 11, 2011

In exchange for the makeover I gave to Lovely {Blog}, Kayleigh made a charitable donation to World Vision.

“World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling causes of poverty and injustice. We serve close to 100 million people in nearly 100 countries around the world. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.“

What impresses me about World Vision is the organization’s transparency (see financial accountability), internship opportunities, and web presence.
