Children can help other children who live in developing 0) countries
KIDS WHO WANT to lend a hand to other kids are getting a hand from a new program that helps needy youngsters outside the United States and makes American kids more aware of the world around them. Kids for Kids is a sponsorship program that encourages youngsters here to communicate with those in developing countries. For $22 a month, an adult can sponsor a child in another country in the name of a child here -- grandparents often do it in lieu of birthday or other gifts. The two youngsters can exchange letters and photos, and both can learn more about the world through the Kids for Kids newsletter. Kids for Kids is a project of Childreach, a non-profit and non-sectarian program with more than 100,000 American sponsors. For more information on Kids for Kids, contact Childreach Sponsorship, 1-800-346-3000.
Many children engage in a deadly game where they push the automatic garage door button and try to run out before it closes. It has caused brain damage and other serious injuries when the doors hit them. To avoid injuries, place your wall-mounted garage door button at a height that children can not reach.Also, test your door to make sure that it has an automatic reversing function that is operating properly.
