There are kids in Malawi who sit for hours on the ground, a ground made of dust, a ground made of wood, or a ground made of cold, hard, unapologetic...concrete.
I have seen Lawrence O'Donnell make this heartening plea for some of us...any of us, to make a gift of a desk for these kids, desks which will give to a child more that we ever could.
Who could think that some pieces of wood and steel pipes could give to these kids more than we ever could... well...a desk could give a child a sense of direction, a sense of worth, a sense of pride in learning, a place to sit while learning, a table on which to write the work they learn in school... and just as important, or even more so, a place to eagerly return, day after day... to educate themselves, to change their lives for the better, by their own hand.
This is what I want for Christmas... someone, anyone to help make a dream come true, for these kids.
Make a gift to these kids today, help us to do that which needs to be done, and the kids will do the rest themselves...
