Kids keep the potential of a better future. In their own heart and in their spirit rests the commitment of a much better world. Planet Aid is dedicated to honoring the guarantee and potential of all children by eradicating poverty and making conditions for lasting improvement.
Unfortunately, the economical recession which started during 2008 has been a major aspect in growing the rates of the extremely poor. The rate where people grow to be poor within the U.S. has risen quicker than every other comparable period as being the earlier 1980's. Today 15.4 million Americans live in intense poverty. This number is the biggest ever recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau. Intense lower income for a family of four in the U.S. means that their cash income is about $30 each day or much less.
The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is October Seventeen
Beyond the U.S. borders the issue is more severe. Presently there are approximately 3 billion individuals in the developing world attempting to survive less than $2 each day. The World Bank estimates that during 2010 alone one more 64 million people were pushed into severe poverty in developing nations. Around Africa, South and Central America, and Asia, villages are beset by growing food cravings, hunger, and illness. Many individuals, especially kids, are caught in a battle simply to live.
With all the reality of these situations in your mind, Planet Aid reaches out to Us citizens to give their unwanted garments. The simple behave of giving garments not only has considerable ecological advantages, but social ones as well. Planet Aid uses the net proceeds it generates from the clothing operations to aid lower income reduction projects that enable smallholder growers to improve their earnings and become more food safe, strengthen educational opportunities (especially among women and young girls), battle diseases that can decimate family members and orphan children, and facilitate community development plans that make a real improvement in the life for the poor.
The Planet Aid clothing collection box is thus the means by that we enable a person-to-person global link of improvement aid, by you to the poorer. Among the many types of improvement models we help is the Child Aid plan. Child Aid seeks to create secure and encouraging living conditions for children as well as their families throughout all sectors of the community. It holds a “people centered” strategy that empowers individuals to become agents of change.
