Tis the Season…

As the holiday season falls upon us, we’re often reminded of how lucky we are, and how little others have and wish there was something more we could do to help.

The holidays can be a magical experience for children, but not all children get to experience what we can take for granted in our everyday lives; Things such as proper medical care, warm clothes, toys to play with, even clean drinking water and nutritional food.

AlexSkarsgård.net and SkarsgårdNews.com didn’t want the season to pass by without taking this opportunity to share a little love with others around the world. Jointly, we presented our idea to Alexander Skarsgård a week or so ago with regards to helping out children this holiday season. Our idea was to raise funds and awareness to the international charity Save the Children and Alex quickly approved.

Working with the charity, they quickly set up a paypal account where our readers, starting today, can donate funds toward Save the Children. We will also be posting sporadic updates on how much the fans have raised until the end of the fund raiser: January 11, 2011.

More about Save the Children:

Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in need in the United States and around the world. Recognized for their commitment to accountability, innovation and collaboration, their work takes us into the heart of communities, where they help children and families help themselves. They work with other organizations, governments, non-profits and a variety of local partners while maintaining their own independence without political agenda or religious orientation.

When disaster strikes around the world, Save the Children is there to save lives with food, medical care and education and remains to help communities rebuild through long-term recovery programs. As quickly and as effectively as Save the Children responds to tsunamis and civil conflict, it works to resolve the ongoing struggles children face every day — poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease — and replaces them with hope for the future.
