I totally just sponsored a child. :)
Every day, I convince the good people of New York City to give me, a random stranger, their credit card information with a promise that they are making a difference in a child's life.
They do it. Even though I hadn't done it. But now I actually have the authority to tell them to do it, since I have my own child now. Here's a picture of her:
Her name is Marjorie, she's from the Philippines and she's 10. That's all I know for now, but I'll get more info in a week or so and then I'll keep you updated.
By the way, this definitely solidifies the Philippines as a future destination in my travels. :)
