How to Help Children & Orphans in Need



Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. ~James 1:27

If you are looking for a worthy cause to donate to during the holidays you might want to consider helping children and orphans in need.
