Is anyone upgrading their electronic equipment or have some free time and can help on a long term basis?

Children's Education Foundation is a small NGO helping poor girls in Vietnam receive an education.

We need some help and you might be able to help us.

Making a difference doesn't need to involve doing anything dramatic, such as giving up ones family or present lifestyle; there are small ways people can help charities, and that makes a difference. A charity doesn't function without help from quite a few people it is hard to do our work without many forms of assistance.

Children's Education Foundation has a few needs and maybe some of you are upgrading equipment and could help us out at the same time. Are you happy to donate your older equipment to CEF?

Maybe some of you can give a little time on an ongoing basis without having to travel overseas?

We don't need new equipment, but we would find some equipment useful:
2 portable laptops in good condition
1 iPad in good condition

Also we are looking for some long-term, part-time volunteers to help us. We need:
A web developer
Someone to maintain the website
Someone with marketing experience
Someone with NGO experience in sponsor communication to help with our sponsor communication
A fund raising manager and fundraising team
A bookkeeper

If you think you can help in any way, please do email me, Linda:

Why not now? Why not make a difference now?

Why not now? Why not make a difference now?

So many people I meet say they will do something to help others when they retire, or when their children leave home.

There are so many things people can do to make a difference to the lives of others right now, and they don't need to be rich to make a difference either.

Just decide what is meaningful for you, and you will be able to speak to others with passion and will find the strength and clarity to act and make a difference. You will find if you decide to act now, that decision will immediately make a difference and will continue to make a difference.
