As a longtime CT resident, I had been loosely familiar with Save the Children, having heard their name for 30+ years. I never quite knew exactly what they did - I always thought it had something to do with children in Africa. However as I traveled the world in the late 90's and early 00's, I begin noticing Save the Children offices/vans/staff in a lot of place: in the slums of Old Delhi, India; in a school in Kathmandu, Nepal; in the Mindanao, Philippines; in Indonesia responding to the Tsunami; in the Dominican Republic; and then in New Orleans helping to sort out the aftermath of Katrina. I have since become a supporter, donating to their Haiti earthquake response and Japan Tsunami response. I love what they do and any organization that helps hundreds of millions of children each year around the world is invaluable in my book.
