ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " O "
Today's post for ABC Wednesday is for the letter " O ".
" O " is for Orphans.
Our family , along with more than 800 people, participated in the annual 1.6 mile walk-a-thon called Hopewalks.
Hopewalks is for children of The Epidemic.
Everyday 6000 children are orphaned because of HIV/AIDS throughout the world.
This walk concentrated on the Continent of Africa where the effects of AIDS is devestating.
Hopewalks provides food, school supplies and basic health care for the vast number of Orphans.
Over $35,000.00 was raised by this walk one week ago.
It was an honor to be able to be a part of such a worthwhile cause.
To see what others have posted for ABC Wednesday go to Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar.
When you enlarge the group shot you can see the many different ages that walked for this cause.
