Okay, I know you guys are out there reading. Yeah, I check the stats.
I'm sure it's fun to read when I'm talking about boobs and cabbage and whatnot. But now I need some suggestions, so pay attention.
I need to know what you think is the best way to affect change in the world, one person at a time. Education? Food? Health care? I'm not really interested in donating to a general cause - I want somewhere that says "If you donate X dollars, you pay for one year of school fees for a child in Africa." Or "If you donate Y, you innoculate 20 children against Malaria." Something concrete.
I admit a bias against American programs; in general, I think there are so many ways for a person here to get help if they want it: after-school programs, Head Start, lunch programs, church programs, scholarships, etc. A kid in Afghanistan really has no options. I also admit a bias towards programs that help out women and girls.
If you had to pick one cause, one program, what would it be?
