When Small Change Makes a Big Difference

I recently learned about a great site called ModestNeeds.org and immediately became a sponsor. Modest Needs was created by Dr. Keith Taylor and their mission is to reduce poverty.

I took this directly from the site:

Modest Needs exists

  • To prevent otherwise financially
    self-sufficient individuals and families from entering the cycle of
    poverty, when this might be avoided with a small amount of well-timed
    financial assistance;

  • To restore
    the financial self-sufficiency of individuals who are willing to work
    but are temporarily unable to do so because they do not have the means
    to remit payment for a work-related expense; and

  • To empower
    permanently disadvantaged individuals who otherwise live within their
    limited means to continue to live independently, despite a temporary,
    unexpected financial set-back.

I am very impressed with the work Keith has done and fully support Modest Needs.

Remember, every little bit helps.
