Hope for a Family

One of our advent activities this year is to sponsor a child.
  • To impact circumstances in someone else's life.
  • To show God's love and acceptance.
  • To be an active example of compassion to my children and others.
In some cases the decision to sponsor is the easy part. The number of child sponsorship charities out there is bewildering. Its tough to know which to choose. While doing my personal research I found an amazing site that ranks charities. I know that sounds a bit weird to rank charities but seriously, we need to know where our money is going.

After some clicking and reading, I think we are going to be sponsoring through the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging.

Hope for a family

94% of the money donated goes directly to your child, not a general fund, but the exact child you sponsor.You will recieve at least 2 letter a year as well as an updated picture. CFCA suggests you also write to encourage your friend. Even trips are arranged for you to meet your child. Like other sponsor sites, it allows you to search by birth date or gender. Unlike so many others it also offers you the option to sponsor the aging or even the possibility of your donation benefiting an entire family!
