Blog Intro

Hey Blog Readers!

This is Taylin and Rachael, and we are going to use this blog to give you information and opinions about helping the unfortunate.

Today we will be talking about what the un-fortunate go through and why we need to help them. 22,000 children die each day due to poverty, and out of the 2.2 billion children in the world, 1 billion kids are in poverty.

80% of the world live on less than $10 per day, and more that 1 billion people are hungry. 1 in 3 people don't have proper shelter, 1 in 5 don't have safe water, and 1 in 7 don't have access to health care.

1.4 million people die each year from lack of water and sanitization; this shows how much the unfortunate need us. Everyone deserves a healthy and happy life. If you want to help the unfortunate, you may donate to any of these great charities; Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, and Unicef.

Thanks for reading our blog! If you have any feedback, questions or suggestions for future blogs/topics, please let us know.
