As we continue our journey of sharing web resources, I have mentioned in my previous post that I signed up for a newsletter from Save the Children. Unfortunately, I have not received a newsletter as of writing this post, but I scrolled around on the site to see what their focus is on.
Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share.
Some general things about “Save the Children” – They believe every child deserves a future. In the United States and around the world, they give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. They do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we all share.
In 2016, Save the Children reached more than 157 million children, including more than 56 million children directly. They worked in 120 countries, including the United States, where they reached 683,000 children. That is just mind blowing!!
When looking at some of their recent news stories, I have found, like, in many other websites, they focused on helping the children who were harmed in the latest storms.

Going through some more of their articles, I came across videos. Sharing videos of what they do and how they help is a great inspiration for anyone. Showing a video of what is happening to the world is a big eye opening.
In harsh times like the hurricanes that have been sweeping countries, I can see that immigrant or not, the people are standing together!
Another site that I find really interesting is ZERO TO THREE
Their mission is to ensure that all babies and toddlers have a strong start in life. At ZERO TO THREE, they envision a society that has the knowledge and will to support all infants and toddlers in reaching their full potential.
During the first three years of life, emotionally nourishing relationships lay the foundation for lifelong health and well-being. By supporting the caring adults who touch the lives of infants and toddlers, ZERO TO THREE hope to maximize their long-term impact in ensuring all infants and toddlers have a bright future.
ZERO TO THREE catches my eye because it is very easy to use and with many different topics from children, to education, parents and health, it covers a broad range.
Their two latest articles have integrated information about misplaced families during the hurricanes. It’s great to know there are sources that look out for the children.
