Choose Who Gets Our Give It Forward Payment for May!

I promised myself that I wouldn't open this post with a question about how it got to be May already, but seriously you guys:  How did it get to be May already?  We are almost halfway through 2012, and I still have to remind myself not to write 2011 every single time I have to put the date on something.  And if you consider how many documents we had to sign and date for Elvie's adoption so far, that means that I've had a ton of practice and still can't accept the onward march of time.

Anyway.  Give It Forward.  That's why we're here.  Let's get back to the point, which is to choose where this month's payment goes.  Without further ado, your three choices.

I have had a delightful email exchange with Bekka of The Small Things, and I am so impressed with what they do!  They support Nkoaranga Orphanage in Tanzania and are involved not only in caring for the smaller children, but also financing schooling for the older children, as well as supporting the needs of the orphanage and affiliated hospital as a whole.  Giving to The Small Things can help with projects such as Light Up the Night, which will pay for the rewiring of the orphanage and also getting lighting in place for the hospital's maternity wing.  Both of these projects are important for the safety and well-being of children and mothers. Who wouldn't want to help make that happen?

We've featured charity: water before, and the reason I've come back to them is that water is essential.  They give clean water to those who don't have it around the globe. That's a beautiful and important thing.

Springtime always makes me think of growing things, and Slow Food has a mission to start gardens in Africa.  A Thousand Gardens in Africa aims to do just what the name of the project says, passing on agricultural knowledge to a new generation and promoting sustainable growing practices that value biodiversity and culture.

So, who gets the payment?  Tell us, please.  As always, you have until midnight, Pacific Daylight Time, on the 15th to make your choice and let us know.
