My children (Harrison, age 6, and Charlotte, age 2) are lucky -- lucky to have a warm house, plenty of nutritious food, a loving family, good education, safe streets, access to playgrounds, pools, and enrichment activities, medical treatment, clean water.
Sadly, many children - in the United States and across the world - do not have what Harrison and Charlotte enjoy on a daily basis. I am running the Shamrock Marathon to raise funds for Save the Children, an amazing organization. Save the Children invests in childhood – every day, in times of crisis and for our future. In the United States and around the world, they give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. By transforming children's lives now, they change the course of their future and ours.
Save the Children has a four star (the highest) rating on Charity Navigator, so you know that your donation is going to a respected organization. Please give what you can - even a small amount makes a big difference!
