What is Your Favorite Social Action of 2008?

Have Fun - Do Good

My favorite social action was being a sponsor for Jacinta Onoro, a Nigerian woman participating in Women for Women International. Women for Women International supports women survivors of war in conflict and post-conflict areas (Afghanistan, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Sudan). Each woman is paired with a sponsor whose donation helps to cover some of their basic necessities (food, water, medicine).
