ChristmasKindness in South Africa (2003)
Three years ago, I put a challenge to myself: How could I use the abundance I've been blessed with to offer something meaningful to someone else? That's when I decided to reach 50,000 children in South Africa. Once there, my staff and I headed for several orphanages and created a mini carnival at every stop. The kids, most of them AIDS orphans, were told they were coming to a party—and many had borrowed shoes just to get there.
