This page will provide an ongoing tally of gifts that are made to global relief and development charities that assist needy women and their children.

I encourage all readers of this blog to join me in this special venture.

Donations are made directly to the chosen charity, and reported here, without identifying the donor. Please choose a charity that you believe is reputable, minimising overhead costs, and transparent in its reporting to donors. I encourage you to consider donations to the charities listed below. This list will be added to as information is provided to me, Joy Johnston begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting [].

The person(s) who donate money will receive a receipt from the charity, and the gift may be tax deductible. Please send me the information if you want your donation to be included in the MOTHERBABY FUND 2009.
