Over break, I was babysitting for a family who adopted their two children and was asking if they knew good programs to travel through for my project. I was telling the mother that I wasn't sure if my project would workout, and she gave me a great idea: I should go to local orphanages and hold babies that don't get held and play with the kids. I could go every few weeks and develop relationships with children that feel neglected and like no one cares for them.
I was really looking forward to taking an exotic trip to Guatemala to work with children, but I don't have a way to raise that amount of money for a trip like that. With my new project idea, it won't require me to raise a crazy amount of money, but I'll still be able to pursue my passion and work with children.
