How to Help the Children of Appalachia

By February 20, 2009

Follow me on:

Tonight, ABC will be airing a follow-up to Dianne Sawyer's "A Hidden America: Children of the Mountains" 20/20 special from last week. The follow-up will air tonight at 10 p.m. on ABC.

After watching last week's special, my husband and I were compelled to help out these children in any way we could. In our search for ways to aid the children of Appalachia, we found ChristianApp.org, the website for an organization called the Christian Appalachian Project:

"Christian Appalachian Project is a Kentucky-based, interdenominational, non-profit Christian organization committed to serving people in need in Appalachia by providing physical, spiritual and emotional support through a wide variety of programs and services."
If you also felt compelled to offer what you can to the cause of making a better life for the people of Appalachia, you can find ways to donate your time, money, and resources through ChristianApp.org.
