Chinese Children Left Behind Documentary

I found an amazing documentary on youtube today! It is in about the children of rural China whose parents must leave for larger cities to find work, and leave the children behind. So interesting. Sad, but interesting. I wish I could go help those children left behind. Maybe open a home where they can come after school, eat a warm meal, study and then go home (or if they have no place to go, they can stay, perhaps??). Or maybe a BETTER idea would be to find sponsors for the children's schooling so they parents can stay with the children rather than leaving to earn money to send them to school (that seemed to be the main reason for the parents to seek work away from home). To watch this documentary, go to youtube.com. In the search bar type, 'Rural China "Children Left Behind" Documentary'. There will be part one, two and three. Watch all three (it is not TOO long). Post a comment and let me know what you think. If you have thoughts on it, please post a comment! I would love to hear your thoughts!!
