Care For God's Creation BY: Stephanie Garcia

“Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will; or, even less, is the property of only a few: Creation is a gift, it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude.” - Pope Francis

As Christians we are instructed to model for all humankind how to love and serve this earth, the part of the creation where we all live. As Pope Francis says, creation is truly a gift and as Christians, it is our duty to protect all. God loved each and every person so we must follow and do the same. We are all made in the likeness of God therefore we must help ALL.

A large issue in this world is children not being given education due to their financial situation. Many families struggle to get food on the table so education isn't their top priority. Education is needed so that one is able to grow and become better. The poor children in these conditions are never given the opportunity to become more.

Some solutions to this growing problem would be to create a nonprofit organization that generates funds to sponsor an education for a child in need. Even bigger than that, depending on how much money is raised, a nonprofit school could be created in an area in dire need

Now those are just some ideas but below are actual places you can donate to help this problem. Every little donation helps.
