Groups extend help to Rwandan poor

  • Follow Letters

Though a simple "thank you" is not enough, on behalf of the SecondShot charity, I would like to express my gratitude to the Augusta Colts Pro Indoor Football Club and Augusta Prep for their kind donation.

SecondShot collects and buys sports equipment for children in Third World countries, and is excited to announce that the Augusta Colts -- through a shoe collection drive at Augusta Prep -- was able to collect and donate more than 30 pairs of athletic shoes in stellar condition to this cause. The kindness and charitable nature exhibited by these two organizations is admirable and inspiring.

It speaks volumes about the character of the leaders of these organizations that, even in these difficult tough economic times, their philanthropic nature thrives.

Their donation will be used to help the brave and underprivileged children of Rwanda.

Hilary Matfess, Evans

How are they going to

How are they going to determine which children are brave? Do the cowardly children have to go bare-footed?SecondShot could probably buy 50 new pair of shoes in Rwanda rather than pay shipping and handling charges on 30 pair.

What about our children (from deadbeat parents) that need so much. Just ride thru some of the low low income areas of Augusta and take a look. It is not the childrens fault that their parents are the way they are. I never understood the need to go away from the United States when so many could use the same help here. I realize this opinion is different from my opinion on welfare but this is not a government program where someone stays on for life of which I totally disagree.

WW1949, the children of the deadbeat parents are truly the victims of their sperm-donor baby-daddy and welfare broodmares who download the babies for the income that is provided by the government checks. The welfare system has to be changed so as to not reward the broodmares for more than one illegetimate download. Tie their tubes or perform a complete hysterectomy but do NOT continue to reward their foolish, reckless, or criminal ways!!!

What a bunch of whiners. You

What a bunch of whiners. You can't even applaud a generous act without fault-finding. Take care of the people you see in need yourself instead of criticising people who have gotten off their duffs and done something.
