It is just amazing how little it takes to give desperate people a little happiness.
In Estonia today, there are still many women and children whose only aim in life is to survive for another day.
Fantasy dreams consist of dolls, french fries, toys, enough food to eat, warm clothing or winter boots.
For something truly exotic, they dream of a trip to one of the islands or maybe even Tallinn.
While these may seem common to us, to them it is their greatest dream, one that will probably never come true.
This is real life and these are real dreams which unfortunately may never come true.
It takes very little to bring even a minimum of joy and happiness to these individuals who experience such sadness and sorrow in their daily lives.
For those of us who have experienced a more plentiful life, don’t we owe something to the less fortunate?
Please help bring some happiness and joy to some otherwise destitute mother or child by making a holiday gift through one of the following organizations.
