Fernando Leopoldo

I began sponsoring a child a few days ago.  His name is Fernando Leopoldo and he's from El Salvador and he's eight years old.  I had always planned to become a sponsor once I finished University (I have three years until I have my masters) as money is, and always has been, tight.  But Saturday evening a volunteer from World Vision knocked on my door, and being interested in the program, I asked for some information.  While we were sitting at my kitchen table talking, I began to think about all the things that I could do without, and it dawned on me that all I had to do was not go out for dinner twice in a month to be able to afford the $35 payments.  I thought back to my first year of college when my roommate and I went a couple of months without being able to buy groceries, so we survived entirely on potatoes that we dug from her mom's garden.  Right now $35 is not going to mean the difference between being able to pay bills so I signed up to sponsor Fernando.

that's wonderful of you! Just remember, if you can live on potatos for months at a time, you can do anything.
