I had this strange dream last night where I walked into the mall with these cute cow boy boots. I strut through the shoe isle looking all cute, then the store manager stopped me. He said that I stole those boots, but I didn't. I bought them last month in the mall, I even had the receipt in my wallet, showing that they had charged it on my credit card. He ignored my evidence and demanded that I pay again, or else. I complied with his request only if he cancel my credit card purchase made last month. Unfortunately, the manager refuse to cancel my purchase last month and decided to charge me again. I was furious and demanded to call the police and sue, but before I even reach for my cell phone I woke up from my nightmare. This dream made me realize that life is unfair, an innocent man can be put to death for the murder he didn't commit, a person who never studies can do much better than a person who studies night and day, a parent could love another child more than their own, people can murder others and get away with it, etc. At times I felt a sense of corruption growing inside of me, then I realize that there are people out there who are suffering far worse than I am.
Imagine an innocent child in a third-world country born with HIV and AIDS because his mother or father are HIV positive. The child didn't choose this type of fate, he is destine in a life of pain and despair. What makes HIV very complex is the fact that it's a retrovirus. A retrovirus is an RNA virus that replicate inside a host through a process called reverse transcriptase to generate DNA from it's RNA genome. Then it incorporate it's DNA into the host genome, and uses the host machinary to replicate endlessly. Through this process the host's immune systems gets exhausted and begin to deteriorate. This eventually leads to AIDS, and children progresses towards this disease faster than adults. A possible treatment for such disaster would be ARV (antiretroviral) treatment, however, it's very expensive and hard to obtain by anyone in a third-world country. Fortunately, I have found a way for all of us to contribute in helping these children, and don't worry you don't have to pay a cent
I have joined forces with some sponsors provided by google to support a charity called "keep a child alive."
Here is what you can do to help:
1) Please click on the charity located underneath the "my charity please help out" section.
2) Answer some question that the sponsor ask you, they usually ask 2-3, non-personal, fun,
3) click on join facebook. Another window will open up showing the sponsor on facebook, you
can choose to join them or not. If you don't want to join them then exit the sponsors facebook
page. That way, anyone without a facebook can still do the charity
4) refresh my blog and you will notice the number of hours have changed
5) If you have nothing to do, you can do more sponsorship questions. The more questions you
do, the more ARV treatment these children will get.
For anyone out there who are afraid that this is a scam, virus, or spam, you can rest assure that it is 100 percent safe. I tested this out a dozen times, and have researched this type of charity to make sure that all my readers can do good deeds without getting a virus. For everyone out there who dedicated their time to help out, thank you so much, and god bless you :)
