    This is really a tragic situation and I am happy that you are taking an initiative to help children when they need it the most. Is it too late to donate? Have the statistics gone up or down since this last post?
    Humanity Thanks you,

    Donations are always welcome, thank you. Most states are making a strong effort to keep children with their own families but with that said some states are still increasing.

    Regards
