ChildFund Shared My Sponsorship Story On Their Website...

ChildFund International

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share that Child Fund wanted to share my sponsorship story on their facebook page. As I have told you all in the past that we have been sponsoring a child named Salifu from Banjul, The Gambia since January 2006. Ever since 9th grade in high school I always wanted to be a sponsor to a child in need and Child Fund has made that dream come true. If you are able I would encourage everyone to sponsor a child from Child Fund. They are one of the best charities in the world and they take as much money as they can and give it straight to the children in need. One amazing thing that sets Child Fund apart from the rest is that not only does the child get sponsored but the whole family gets sponsored. They receive medical, dental, food, education and so on. You are also able to write to your sponsored child and exchange letters, pictures and gifts which I have done with Salifu straight from the start. If we all just sponsored one child then we can get rid of hunger in this world. Not one child in our world should go to bed hungry and going through Child Fund they literally change these little lives. You can read my story here and if you would like to sponsor a child just go to their official website here. It is just so you know. The sponsorship fee each month is only around $24.00 and trust me when I say that you WILL receive more in return then they get. Plus, just knowing that you are literally helping to change these little lives and their families, well that is just priceless to me. When Salifu is too old for this program we will sponsor a new child and I will pass this down to my children and make it a family tradition to sponsor children as long as we can. We spend SO much money on craft items and we know how expensive that can be. Just imagine taking only $24.00 a month and literally changing a whole family and knowing that they will not go to bed hungry, knowing that the children will receive education, knowing that the whole family receives medical...well that is ALOT for the little amount that you give them each month. Each time I get a letter from Salifu and his family is literally a gift to me. Child Fund sends me Salifu's report cards, school work that they are proud of, updated pictures and lots and lots of letters.
We also send them extra money for special occasions like birthdays, christmas and they are able to use that money for what ever they need. I sent Salifu money for his birthday this past June and he was able to have a birthay party with the children in his village. Probably his first birthday party ever! How amazing is that?
I want to send a special thank you to Child Fund for wanting to share my story with the world.
If I can only get one more child sponsored then it is SO worth it. I would share a picture of Salifu but I think I packed up his letters and pictures and put them in storage since our house is on the market. If I happen to find it I will post it so you can see how beautiful this little boy is.  Please go check Child Fund out and think about sponsoring a child from them. It will change your life just as much as you will change their lives!
Thanks and I will talk to you all soon!! ~Terri
