In the US $35 can buy a lot of things.
A pair of jeans for instance. If they aren't a really expensive brand name.
3 or 4 shirts from the clearance rack at Target.
A pair of nice shoes.
Dinner out. (Depending on where you go and how many tag along.)
One coffee/day for a month. If you only buy $1 cups of coffee.
10 Starbucks mocha frappuccinos.
2-3 books on your amazon wish list.
A tank of gas, maybe.
4 1/2 pounds of T-bone steak on sale at the grocery store.
Food, clothing, shelter, safe transport to and from school and a home where they are loved for a child like Saewong whose parents were killed by the Burmese Army.
That's what $35 will buy. Most of us, by making a few adjustments to our daily routine; like walking more, or making coffee at home, eating less meat, or just buying fewer things, could afford to take care of a child who has nothing, every single month.
Wouldn't that be worth it?
