Helping World's Children
For many years I’ve been one the proud sponsors/donors of World’s Children. The non-corporate style non-profit was founded by the late Rev. Edwin and Mable Purviance in 1965 with a mission to support orphaned children in developing countries.
At times in a point of conversation I’ve mention that my name is on a girls bathroom wall. After a long pause I begin explaining how 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 … 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.
