I've just added Friends of the Orphans under the $500 link, because this amount ($30-$50 a month) allows you to sponsor a child. It's September. School is starting. Wouldn't this be a good project for this year? I've read through this organization's website and see no religious affiliation. It's highly rated by Charity Navigator, so if you are looking for an opportunity to sponsor a child in South Africa or the Caribbeans, please check out this site.
