Lightbulb My Sponsored Son.

Hey all, i just thought i would introduce you to our sponsored Son from Nicaragua. His name is Jose Antonio Perez Gomez. His face was badly burned in a fire as you can see in the picture. I plan on visiting him one day in Nicaragua, maybe go hunting for some boas or something heh!

Thanks Hippy! I might look a little bit shady to some people, but i am very kind and generous... I mean 25$ a month is peanuts to me and it means the world to my son. For christmas i think i am going to send him a soccer ball as he enjoys Soccer! lol 5$ walmart ball to his is like a ball of gold! Im sure he will enjoy it. Everyone deserves a chance... and these children are not given the opportunity, so you have to make opportunities for them. I plan on keeping a good relationship with him.

It's amazing for me to see people caring so much about someone who desperately needs some help so far away. If more people would do this, the world would be such a better place and especially the innocent children that suffer most would all get helped and live healthier and happier lives.

You are such wonderful people and deserve a pat on the back for doing what so many don't bother to.

I would be interested to know which organisations you go through to offer this wonderful help.

A soccer ball would be an AMAZING gift for him man!!! I mean, a $5 soccer ball would give that dude so much pleasure we probably can't even fathom it! Crazy how perspective works eh?!!


Good on you ********, that's awesome.
