Yongguk receives a letter from his World Vision sponsor child



Background info:


"Yongguk sponsored a child, Mim, through World Vision, an organization that helps alleviate poverty and hunger in many countries worldwide that may be affected by natural disasters or civil conflict,etc."



Dear Bang Yong Kook,


First of all, on behalf of Mim, we send you our earnest love.

She hopes you and your family are doing good. Mim is doing well with her family too.

She was delighted when she received the first letter you sent. For that letter, she wants to thank you. To make you feel happiness too, she is sending you some pictures. When you see them you will feel happy. 


She is in elementary school now. When Mim heard that someday you wanted to come visit Bangladesh, she became very happy. She loves to read Bangla books and plays dolls with her baby brother. She hopes that you will send her a letter again. 

May God bless you, and your family. She wants to thank you.

“Mim” (in Mim’s handwriting)

I could not suppress my admiration at him saying that support is a present. Thanks to him, I am also doing meaningful work. His heart is very warm.

This reminds me I need to work harder to budget so I can keep money aside for giving like this. I've often thought of sponsoring a child but always held back. I need to move forward on it. Thanks to Yongguk for the inspiration and reminder.

Are you me? :D I've been finding it really hard to manage my allowance but this is such a huge motivation for me to set aside some money and eventually have enough to sponsor a child. I was aww-ing all over the place on the world vision and save the children sites. Guh I have such a soft spot for kids and animals.

I've never been great with managing money but I'm getting a little better I think so I'm hoping to get moving on this soon. I used to do the 24-hour famine when I was younger every year for World Vision but it's been ages. At the moment I give so little to charity so I'm so glad to get some extra motivation :) Hopefully we can both do it!
