Chef Jade explores the subject of Virtual Adoption for her first article of the year
By: Jade and Zelda
One of the (few) positive things to come out of the pandemic is that we have been forced to find new and creative ways to connect with each other. If, like me, you often wonder what you can do to help kids during these incredibly challenging times, consider virtual adoption. This process allows you to provide necessities like food, housing, and education for a child in need. While you might never get to see this child in person, you can be sure that you are making a difference.
Virtual Adoption Is The Right Choice For Our Times
They say it takes a village to raise a child, but sadly COVID-19 has disrupted that village in many ways. Essential charitable services like food pantries, tutoring, and clothing drives have been shut down or completely suspended in many communities. Of course, this affects children in substantial ways, but it also affects adults who have spent years helping and interacting with children through charitable organizations that are now on pause. This is where virtual adoption comes in. Virtual adoption allows people to help out remotely, in a way that doesn't pose a health risk.
Virtual Adoption Can Broaden Your Reach
One of the great things about virtual adoption is that it enables you to broaden the reach of your charity: you can even choose to virtually adopt a child in another country, if you wish. International virtual adoptions are very popular for several reasons. For one, the American dollar tends to go a lot further in most other countries than it does here. This means that, for millions (if not billions) of children around the world, a donation of even a few dollars a month can be life-changing. Another reason that international virtual adoption is so popular is that, while many Americans would love the chance to travel to another country to lend a hand, the time and expenses required are simply too great. This type of in-person assistance was difficult even before the pandemic; it is much more so now.
