Mom was hogging the computer like almost ALL DAY yesterday, so I couldn't write my blog entry until almost bedtime! You would think she would be nicer and more courteous about sharing, but sometimes she's just not. And what was she doing all day on the computer? She was writing letters to her kids!
The reason they are called this is because Mom sends some money every month to sponsor them. The money doesn't go straight to the kids because they would probably just spend it on bubble gum or something dumb like that. Instead, the money goes to an organization, and it is used to do nice things for the communities where the kids live, like build schools and toilets and clinics and that kind of stuff.
Anyway, Mom sponsors a whole bunch of kids. There are 21 of them, in fact, not that anybody is counting! Mom likes being a sponsor, but sometimes she gets way behind on writing letters to her kids, so then she has to try to catch up. That's what she was doing yesterday, but she's not quite all caught up yet.
Mostly all the kids live in different countries because Mom likes variety. But she sponsors two girls who live in Ecuador. Their names are Daniela and Xiomara. Mom would like to go visit them and also see the Galapagos Islands, but she can't really afford to go there now because of the Bad Economy.
Well, that's all I'm going to tell you about Mom's sponsored kids. Frankly, I find it more interesting to talk about myself or about Important Topics for Dogs. But since Mom was hogging the computer all day, like I told you, I couldn't really do any research to write about stuff I wanted to write about.
If you happen to want to know more about Mom's sponsored kids, you can see pictures of all of them here: http://evapics.smugmug.com And maybe tomorrow I can write about something that my doggy and kitty readers will find more interesting.
