No Longer A Slumdog - Book Review

I wrote a previous post on getting a free book called "No Longer A Slumdog". I received my free book really quick after I signed up to get it and I read it all in one day!
When I began reading it, I felt so sad for all the stories they tell, about the people living in poverty and the things they have to face. It's really sad that people live in those environments of poverty, with the pain and suffering. It makes me want to help them out because no person should have to live in those lifestyles. But, In all honesty, while I was reading the end of the book, I felt like I was watching one of those commercials that make you feel bad and guilt you into sponsoring a child in a poor country. Don't get me wrong, I would love to help all those people in poverty, if I could! But I don't want people to push things onto anybody with a guilt trip. Also, I've never liked the idea of sending money to a company that says they give it to the people in need, but I don't specifically see it being given so It makes me feel uneasy. I rather give straight to those in need, then go through a company that I don't have a clue where it really goes! That's just my 2sense though.
If this company is legit then that it an amazing thing they are doing and I am more than happy that they can do it. It's great to make a difference in someones life in need. I hope that all of us can learn to help a life in need!
