Attitude of Gratitude ...Day 22 - Make a difference in a child's life - for $20

Today, I'm grateful for friends who strive to make a difference in the lives of children in need.
So Kathie...this post is for you!

For less than the cost of four grande beverages at Starbucks (or another coffee shop); four Happy Meals; about the cost of two movie tickets, and a drink/popcorn combo; and maybe the newest hardback book....

...you can provide a Christmas present for a child in Costa Rica.

A writing friend in Costa Rica is working to raise $2o per child, 33 children in total, to provide Christmas presents - gifts to include things like clothing, shoes, school supplies, toothpaste, shampoo - things kids in the states take for granted.
