How you can help others...
or get help for yourself or a friend.

What is the purpose of this site?

This site has a dual purpose. First, it is to help people find out more about the various problems in this world, and the various ways they can help do something about these problems, or help people with these problems. Second, it is to help people who have a problem, or need help, find the help they want or need.

This site is designed like several mini sites that are all branches from this front page. You can bookmark this page, or the mini sites if there is a specific section you are interested in.

What exactly does this site do?

I am designing this site to do a few things.

- To help you learn about the various problems that exist in this world.
- Help you get ideas for things you can do about some of those problems.
- Help you make decisions when you do choose to help.
- Make it easier for you, and others who care, to do something.
- Give people who may need help, something to read, and possible sources of help.

The more all of us care about other people, the better life can be for everyone. Too many people sit back and do nothing. They may not know what they can do. They may not know how serious some things are. They may not realize that even if they don't have money, they can still help. In some cases, they just don't care.

Some people need help, but don't know where to find it. This will hopefully be a useful starting point for them.

Why am I making this site?

I have a few reasons.

- I guess my biggest reason is because I am a Christian, and one of the best things I can do for my saviour is to help others.
- My next reason, which I consider to be almost as important, is that I love children and teenagers. If I see a child hurting, I can't walk away, and this is another way I can help them.
- My most interesting reason is that I like designing websites. This gives me the opportunity to use a talent I enjoy using to do something I love doing, helping others, especially children and teenagers.
- This reason is sort of related to my second reason. Children and teenagers have brought more joy to my life than anyone else ever has, and in 1987, 3 special children saved my life. They have meant the world to me throughout their childhood and teenage years.
Unless I can help every child and teenager in the world have a perfect life, I will never be happy with what little I have done so far. As just 1 person, I am very limited in what I can do. With the help of the internet, I can do more by helping others like you find out what you can do, and by helping those that need help through this worldwide information center.
In time, when the site has reached a sufficient level of content, I would like to be able to make it available in various languages.
What am I hoping to accomplish?

That depends; if you mean my hopes, I would like to see heaven on earth. More realistically though, I would like to be able to help make earth a little more like heaven. If you are the type of person who would like to do the same, please look through this site to see what I have here now, and bookmark it so you can check back later. I will be adding more to it as often as I can to give you more ideas on ways to help, and to provide you with more details on various ideas to save you the research.

If you have a problem and are here looking for help, don't be afraid to contact me if you can't find what you are looking for.

When will this site be finished?

This site will never be finished because first I need to get each of the sections that are here now finished. During that time, I know I will come up with ideas for new sections to add, or find new information. Even then, it will not be finished because each section will need to be kept up to date. This site won't stop growing until Heaven comes to earth, or until Jesus takes me home. Hopefully when my life comes to an end, I will have someone else to take over the site.

I originally started this site in March 2001, when I had lots of free time, but changes suddenly left me with no free time and work here was put on hold. Somehow several years have passed and I've only had a few chances to add a little bit to this site. Now, 2009 is almost over. Somehow, I'm going to start finding some time to work on this site.

Have I bored you with enough talk?
Let's move on.

Click on the following links to go to the different sections.

You will find that several of the sections are about subjects that affect one another.

  • Missing children and runaways are similar, but the runaways left at there own will.
         (They don't always stay away at there own will though.)
  • Runaways and prostitution are frequently caused by abuse.
  • Rape is a serious form of abuse, especially when the victims are children.
  • Depression can lead to many things, including suicide.
Currently only the "3rd World" and "Contact me" links are ready. The others will take you to a page telling you approximately when that section will be ready. Over the next few weeks the basics will be up in each section one at a time. I plan to have something in each section by the end of November, and add more content from there.

Feel free to contact me.
