Video: Americans Rush to Donate to Afghanistan Orphanage in News Story

From Denny: This is one of those stories journalists like to tell, something happy and an unexpected good outcome. NBC News ran this story about the children being cared for in the war zone of Kabul, Afghanistan by Andisha Farrid in her safe haven orphanage.

The first video is the most recent. You can watch the progression of the news story through the next videos. It really is wonderful to see so many people respond to a story on the news, opening their hearts, their homes and their wallets to help support these children in need half a world away. Many people have offered to adopt the children.

It just goes to show you the positive side of the media in how it can reach a huge audience in a short amount of time to do the maximum good in the world!

This is the first news story that started the barrage of donations and support for this Afghanistan orphanage:
