“Signs of Success”

Filed under: Just for fun — theburts @ 12:46 pm

World Vision is a Christian organization that provides humanitarian support worldwide. Great ratings at Charity Navigator, 4 of 4 stars actually. So, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I have to post a funny mistake in their latest publication, specifically in a short article called “Signs of Success”:

“World Vision works in nearly 100 countries, serving the world’s poorest children and families. From emergency relief after earthquakes to sustained development through child sponsorship, World Vision serves nearly 100 million people, including 1.6 people in the United States.”


It’s so nice to see such a large organization giving back to almost two people in its own country! I’m just not sure what that means…does the second person only get 3/5 of a meal? heehee. Anyway, I won’t poke any more fun. Besides, I’ve got to run…I’m going downtown to give someone half of one of my homeless bags.



  1. 1.6 people out of a country of 300 million, eh? With God all things are possible, I guess!
