Pedicures and Pumpkin Lattes

Did you know, that at $4.75, seven Pumpkin Spice Lattes cost you about $35.

Maybe you’re at Starbucks right now, fueling up before a Saturday afternoon pedicure. That pedicure is going to be another $35.

While you’re relaxing in the seat using your $35 per month data plan, your best friend texts you to set up a last minute dinner and movie double date.

Dinner out at your favorite Italian place, $35.

Two tickets to “The Family” at the nearest cinema along with the standard soda and popcorn, you guessed it, $35.

$35 per month is all it takes to sponsor a child in Guatemala.

That is 1 dinner out. 1 date night at the movies. 1 pedicure. Or 7 lattes.

For every one of those $35 World Vision receives, only 15 cents goes to administrative costs. But because World Vision maximizes those 15 cents, they end up raising even more money. The result is that for every $1 donation to World Vision, $1.30 is spent in places like Guatemala. That’s money that goes directly to provide services for sponsor children like Gerson and those waiting for a sponsor, like Angel. No dollar spent on a latte can guarantee that great a return.

What are you going to spend $35 on this week?
