The Guild knows the contribution it makes is very modest, not even a drop in the ocean that is needed to alleviate the misery of millions of children.  But a poet spoke for us:


"Jostling with the crowd in a country fair he saw a child with empty hands and empty pocket near a shop full of toys and tinsels. The sadness in his eyes had shadowed all the glitter at the fair. Suddenly from a corner, a little girl blew on her penny whistle - its note rose to the sky clear and joyful filling the air with bliss of happiness."  (Tagore)


We in the Guild like to believe that our efforts will buy some penny whistles for the children -- that will be our reward.


Thank you for your interest in supporting children in vulnerable situations around the world.
