For many years I’ve been one the proud sponsors/donors of World’s Children.
At times in a the mist of a conversation I’ve mention that my name is on a girls bathroom wall. After a long pause I begin explaining why my name got on the bathroom wall.
World’s Children has many projects that needs funding. When I found out that one of the girls orphanage was living with a dilapidated bathroom I quickly sponsored it. After construction, the grateful folks there placed a plaque of thanks on the wall with my name on it. This thoughtful gesture was unknown to me until I received a letter from World’s Children headquarters with photos enclosed depicting a plaque with Ken Casey and another donor … of course … on the girls bathroom wall.
So that’s why my name is on a girls bathroom wall.
It’s been a great conversation starter to get more people involved in helping children in great need.
