Whilst I think I’m late, this is my contribution for The Blog Action Day. This year’s theme is about poverty. I’m writing here quickly in a very casual way.
I remember when I first put up a blog (not octwelve), my second post was about this baby who is in need of a very rare and expensive milk to survive, and this milk can only be bought overseas. He is one of the many poor babies in the foundation that I support. But that time, monetary donations is not enough. So I emailed the people overseas that I know if they know the milk and if I could buy from them and ship it to me. It’s so difficult to get that milk. And I tried to blog about it too. But the thing is it’s just a second post. I don’t think I have enough credibility by that time. Although I have the video of the baby posted too, that blog is not very popular. So to make my long story short, my blog to find milk for the baby is not successful :(
Now I’m thinking, I hope I can use this blog to raise funds for that foundation. And I could sponsor other charitable institutions as well. Nice idea right? But I think to do that, I need some permit. Hmm let’s see.
And now we are talking about this. I’ve been searching for years for this orphanage in the Philippines which adopts babies till 2 years old. I forgot the name, House of Angels or something. If you know it, do let me know. I hope this reaches them too.
I think this is one of the many ways to make use of technology to fight against poverty or atleast try to help those who are currently in need.
PS: The baby found his milk and survived :)
