Tasary is a very small village where 53 children are living in miserable conditions. We have one vision: to provide innocent children who are victims of poverty with opportunities, enabling them to unlock their potential both physically and mentally and protect them from hunger, sexual abuse & human traffic.
We have started by send food, water, clothes, shoes, toys… End of 2011, aware of the unhealthy dwellings we decided to do more and build a new home to protect them. We organized several charity activities and events to collect fund and start building the site.
We are now so close to complete their future home, foundation, wall and roof are done but the funding has run out, and the construction has stopped. With your help, today, we can restart construction immediately, finish the orphanage, and start feeding and caring for these 53 children who need our help so badly.
Your donation will help to build the Interior walls, painting, doors, windows, to pay for the electricity connection to the home, for the water connection, to furnish the new building with crib’s, bunk beds, tables, chairs, linens, kitchen equipment…
Please feel free to donate. Every dollar counts. You can make a difference, consider that $10 will pay one laborer for a day, $25 will buy a bag of cement, $50 completely cares for one orphan for a month! $220 covers the cost for bunk beds for three orphans! $500 covers the cost for the energy for the entire orphanage!

Para que sirven los suplementos vitamínicos
En algunas ocasiones cuando enfermamos y consultamos a los médicos las causas de nuestros padecimientos o enfermedades, nos enteramos por alguna extraña razón que a pesar de que tenemos una dieta balanceada, necesitamos de suplementos vitamínicos.
Muchas personas aseguran que solo se necesitan suplementos vitamínicos en ocasiones de evidente desnutrición, falta de disciplina con un estricto régimen de una dieta balanceada, o por la descompensación que alguna enfermedad realiza en nuestro organismo.
No hay nada de falsedad en esas causas nombradas, pero tampoco hay nada de falso en afirmar que no son las únicas razones que pueden justificar el uso y consumo de suplementos vitamínicos y minerales como el cloruro de magnesio. A continuación se presentan algunas características y funciones de nuestro organismo.
Las mejores razones para ingerir vitaminas artificiales
Bien es sabido que la falencia de algunos órganos por desgaste, padecimiento o enfermedad, también son una de las causales por las cuales una persona consume este tipo de suplementos que le ayudan a contrarrestar los efectos de la enfermedad que recaen sobre el cuerpo.
Tan bien suelen usar este tipo de tratamientos los deportistas. Pensemos en un momento en la estricta disciplina a la que se somete un ciclista para ejercer su deporte. El consumo para la mejoría, rendimiento y compensación de cada una de las sustancias, es necesario para resistir a largas jornadas de entrenamiento y competencia.
Sin embargo, teniendo siempre en cuenta que la decisión de tomar suplementos vitamínicos indica que hay una falencia de grado mayor o menor en el organismo, los especialistas recomiendan que la búsqueda de estos suplementos se haga directamente a través de alimentos.
Efectos colaterales del consumo de vitaminas artificiales
Los alimentos suelen tener una mayor concentración de vitaminas y además de ello, no son tan tóxicos como lo puede ser el consumo excesivo de un suplemento vitamínico, ya que estos últimos pueden causar graves problemas en el funcionamiento normal del organismo.
El control de consumo de las vitaminas a través de suplementos debe ser estrictamente normativo en cualquier caso, debido a que la automedicación incurre en variadas ocasiones, a producir la muerte de algunos individuos que utilizan los suplementos con negligencia.
Es necesario tener en cuenta también que si un suplemento vitamínico ingerido con anterioridad por un individuo se guarda por largos periodos de tiempo, el uso que ha de tener es restringido hasta verificar adecuadamente cada uno de los datos de expiración y estado del producto en las condiciones de consumo.
Para concluir, los suplementos vitamínicos son poco recomendables en uso excesivo debido al contenido tóxico. Sin embargo en algunos casos es imprescindible hacer uso de ellos, por lo que la consulta y asesoría médica son buenos grados de opción para contrarrestar cualquier duda que pueda ser de suma importancia.
Recuerde siempre que en ningún caso es conveniente callarse. La asesoría médica siempre le dará luces para aclarar y actuar en cualquier condición de riesgo, con la mayor tranquilidad y seguridad que le brindan los especialistas de la excelente salud ocupacional.

Choosing the Right Business Management Software
Choosing the right business management software can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t need to be. We’re going to make it a lot simpler for you. First of all, you need to decide whether you need your software to fulfill a single requirement or perform a variety of tasks. Potential examples of these types of tasks include those related to accounting and inventory control (in Spanish, gestión de inventario), as well as data management, customer relationship management, and human resources management. There are also other types of tasks which such software can be designed to help you perform. It all depends on your company’s specific needs.
Since business management software is usually licensed to you and installed by a vendor, choosing the right software is ultimately as important as choosing the right software. Luckily, we can take all of the mystery out of that for you as well. Basically, what you should be looking for here is a track record of success. The particular areas you should be looking at include selecting the right software to begin with as well as maintaining it. For that matter, you should be looking for a company that has extensive experience working with other firms which are similar to your own.
There are also other factors which you should be considering when selecting the right vendor for your business management software. Cost is one of those factors, but it might not be the most important, as it is also important to choose a firm which can grow with your company and continue to provide you with the service that you are going to need in the future. If you buy your software off the shelf, then you need to evaluate the manufacturer of that software in much the same way. In either case, the software needs to be able to accept additional components as your business needs continue to evolve.
Since we mentioned that cost is a factor to be considered when attempting to choose the right business management software, we should elaborate on that thought. You should consider not only the cost of the initial installation of the software, but also the cost of its ongoing maintenance. The ongoing licensing fees of the software must be renewed as well. However, with payment of these last costs, you also receive ongoing upgrades to the software itself. A reputable company will provide you with an estimate of all of these costs during your initial consultation

Sell Old CDs to Raise Cash For Charity
In the current economic climate, raising funds is turning out to be very difficult for most charities. People just do not have the spare cash to give as generously as they once did.
In many cases, they are struggling on a daily basis to meet their own bills. Even those who do have a little to spare are feeling less secure about their own financial future. This is leading some to put any spare cash they have in the bank rather than giving it to charity.
However, even in these difficult economic times there are ways charities can reliably raise money. One way is to sell old CDs, DVDs, video games and BluRay discs.
The Traditional Way to Sell Old Cds
CDs are something a lot of people have sitting around their home, for the most part completely untouched, even forgotten. Occasionally they will have a clear out and put their unwanted up for sale for a few cents each as part of a yard or rummage sale. Often they do not sell, at which point they end up in the bin or maybe being sent to a charity shop.
If the charity shop is lucky they can sell some of them, but an awful lot just sit there and also eventually end up in the bin. Something no one benefits from.
However, there is a new and more efficient way to sell unwanted CDs that private individuals and charities can both use to get more cash from unwanted CDs they have accumulated.
The New Way to Sell Unwanted Music CDs
The new way is to use a site called www.musicmagpie.com. This site is run by Entertainment Magpie Limited who have been offering this service to UK and German consumers for several years. In both countries, their service is very popular, and they have a reputation for being reliable and paying well for any old CDs sent to them, and doing so quickly.
How it Works
The process is simple and takes less than a minute per CD. All you do is to register for free on the site and sit down with your pile of unwanted music CDs.
Then you enter the barcode on the original packaging into the relevant field on their website. When you hit enter, you will be told within seconds how much musicMagpie will pay for that particular CD. If the price is acceptable you hit the agree button, if not you hit the pass button and move on to the next CD in your collection.
Any CDs you agree to sell just need to be placed in a separate pile to those you wish to keep. When you have exhausted your unwanted CDs all you have to do is to parcel up the pile of CDs you are selling to musicMagpie. They provide you with a shipping label to attach to your parcel. Attaching this label to your parcel means that you do not have to pay for shipping.
Next, you take your parcel to either a designated Post Office or UPS office. Alternatively, if you prefer arrange for UPS to pick it up from you.
When musicMagpie receive your parcel, they check its contents. If each CD is in genuine i.e. not pirated, in its original packaging and in good condition they will send you a check.
With very little effort, you can raise extra cash for your charity. It is not a difficult task and is one that most volunteers would be only too happy to do on your behalf.
You Can Sell DVDs and Video Games Too
Best of all www.musicmagpie.com also accept old DVDs, video games and BluRay discs. Simply by asking people for these items, which most people can still afford to part with, you can raise extra cash for your charity within just a week or two.

There are many military troops and military civilians overseas that could use your help over the holidays. Many of these troops don’t have family or many friends and don’t receive anything for Christmas even though they are overseas working and risking their lives so that we can have safe and happy holidays. Sending charity gifts or money to the troops overseas gives them a feeling of appreciation and may make their lonely day a lot better.
There are many great gifts that military troops love to receive. Books or PC video games are always a great gift because they are a great way to keep them entertained while they get breaks. Food, snacks, or beef jerky are always a good idea also because they generally do not receive the best food in their living conditions. Itunes and Amazon credits are a good way to let them download music, books, or movies that they would love to see. Phone cards or Skype credits are also a great gift for the troops, allowing them to contact family members and friends during the holidays. Always think about the people keeping you safe during the holidays and show your appreciation by sending a small gift or money contribution. There are many places that collect these gifts locally or you can visit USO’s website for information about how to contribute.

A Terrible Experience While on my Last Mission Trip
Last month, I traveled with about 20 of my church’s members down to Central America for a church mission trip. During this annual mission trip, we help build structures, give medical care, and donate money to some of the poor villages throughout the country. It’s a great way to give to those all over the world rather than in the United States where being “poor” doesn’t necessarily mean you’re starving. You won’t see true suffering until you go to a 3rd world country and see people starving to death. Getting a free piece of candy is like receiving a $2,000 check to the children and a little bit of medical attention is even better!
During the trip, I experienced a little medical problem myself. The Central American food was definitely different than what my stomach was used to which ended up constipating me. After a couple days of being constipated, I noticed some sensitive lumps near my anal region that seemed to itch and hurt to the touch. I finally realized after researching on the internet that I had gotten hemorrhoids and that it is actually common to get hemorrhoids while you are constipated or having irregular bowel movements. Once we discovered the culprit, I was able to get some topical ointment from the pharmacy which got rid of them in no time.

How Fitness and Exercise Can Help African American Patients with AIDS
African American patients with HIV can slow their infections by doing common things to build their immune systems such as eating a healthy diet, getting enough rest, keeping stress levels down, and exercising. Exercise can help lower stress levels also so by following a good fitness program, you can hit two birds with one stone.
Having HIV can make it difficult to exercise due to increased feelings of lethargy but it’s crucial to slow the development of AIDS and is also known to increase blood counts! When you start an exercise program, get a good feel of what kind of shape you’re in. Don’t over-do it but push yourself to do more each day. If you ever feel dizzy or tired, take a break or do less strenuous exercises. If you’re joints are swollen, you have diarrhea, or other signs of sickness, take some time off until you are feeling well enough again. Try to get at least 12 minutes of cardiovascular activity in every day or as much as possible.
By exercising daily, you can slow the infection by building immunity and increasing oxygen absorption. Exercise is known to boost endorphins in the brain will also help maintain healthier stress levels and decrease depression. These factors will slow your infection, and help you feel better in general!

Hiring People for a Nonprofit Organization
In today’s world hiring employees for a non-profit organization is very hard as well as tricky. You have to be very careful about the methods to choose your employees for your nonprofit organization. As the economy status is really going through a bad phase the nonprofit organizations are having a hard time. It has become really difficult for them to make money.
Let us know first about non-profit organization. There is a wrong concept that many people assume that nonprofit organizations do not make money. Nonprofit organizations also make money but they are not concerned about the profit part. Most of these organizations are part of a charity, so the profit they get is either used for the workers or for some other charitable issues.
As it is said earlier hiring an employee for a nonprofit organization is hard and tricky. In today’s world every person wants to earn a good amount of money. So if you want to hire people then you need to match them up to certain criteria such as give emphasis to their ability, not to their experience. If you are running a nonprofit organization you can hire people in a temporary basis and then you can try and test their abilities during that time. After that if you are satisfied with their work, make them permanent employees.
Now the problem is how to get people to hire. If you want to hire people for your organization then you have to continuously keep notifying people about the vacancy at your organization in a very attractive way. There are several ways to let people know about the vacancy such as using internet, advertisement at newspapers and magazines, mobile phone news etc. Now you must be thinking, how mobile phone news can be useful in this matter.
Nowadays everyone has a mobile phone and they use it all the time. So it is the fastest way to catch a person’s attention by using mobile phone news. It is not only the fastest way but also the easiest one. You just need to prepare a message body according to your need and specification and you can send it to a large number of people. You can even hire specific organization to do this work for you. This is a cost effective process too. Nowadays people don’t get the time to check their e-mails and magazines’ advertisements but everyone has a mobile phone in their hands all the time, so the moment one message is being in boxed, then and there it is checked. So there is no doubt that it is easier to grab attention through mobile phone news.
When you are hiring people thorough various ways, make sure that the process of hiring should be proper, so that you can get the best person suitable to your needs. You should not always believe on their abilities written on their resumes. You should always quest their abilities at the time of hiring through some interview procedures. It does not matter whether your organization is profitable or nonprofit, your hiring process should be very strong, so that you can get suitable and desired candidate.
