This video was produced by an organization called 10,000 Degrees. Their sole purpose is to help children from low-income families create a better future for themselves by going to college and starting a career. Some people may respond by thinking, “Yeah, education is great , but…” I argue that this is sooo much more than just a college degree. I believe that helping children from low-income families go to college gives them opportunities their parents and grandparents never had. It gives them purpose and hope. It results in lower crime rates and better home lives. It improves their overall quality of life.
I know that as Christians we want to introduce a spiritual aspect as well. I agree. But I still believe that organizations like this are worth supporting, volunteering at or learning from.
Watch the video and then share your thoughts.
