Chargers' AFC Championship gear donated to worthy cause

Since the Chargers didn’t win the AFC Championship, the best thing possible will happen with their pre-printed AFC Championship merchandise.

More than $2.5 million worth of Chargers’ AFC Championship gear that can’t be sold now in the U.S. is being sent to help those in need around the world through World Vision.

The good news is that there will be children in places such as Romania and Africa wearing Chargers’ clothing to keep them warm, which is a luxury for people in poor countries.

Barbara-Lee Edwards and Stan Miller of KFMB TV Channel 8 in San Diego both mentioned on the air Monday night that they sponsor a child through World Vision.

My household has been blessed by being able to sponsor a 10-year-old boy named Alpha Oumar Toure in Senegal for the past several years.

World Vision is a great organization whose motto is “Building a better world for children.”

Through World Vision, individuals such as you can sponsor a child, or even donate for goats and chickens to be given to poor families throughout the world and help provide for their daily need to have food (something we take for granted, but doesn’t always happen for these people.)

For more information, please visit http://www.worldvision.org/.

If the Chargers couldn’t win, then it’s nice to know that poor people around the world are able to benefit from all of the Chargers’ AFC Championship merchandise.
