For nearly two years, Chicago Tribune reporters sponsored more than a dozen children in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. In May of 1997, eight reporters set off in search of those children. Eventually, all were found-except for one girl who had been dead for most of the time she was sponsored. Although a few of the other children received periodic handouts-often ill-fitting clothing and shoes, bars of soap, cheap cooking pots-several got next-to-nothing. In no case was any child's life changed, several of the children were even unaware they had been sponsored.
Looks like you haven't made a choice yet.
