What Can I Do to Help?

Our sponsor children!

I wanted to share with you something very important to me! Part of my lifestyle involves charity work and helping others who weren’t as blessed as I was. I am a Child Ambassador for a non-profit organization called World Vision International. We help get children sponsorships so they can go to school, have clean water, adequate nutrition, medical care, and clothing. I have been sponsoring a little girl in Costa Rica for over a year now and it is amazing to see her grow up and watch her learn. My parents sponsor a little boy in India and they routinely receive pictures and drawings from him along with letters from his family because he is too young to write. 

It is a major blessing and relief to the children and their parents (if they have any) to be able to attend school and be cared for. However, it cannot be done without generous people’s help. I pay $35 a month to sponsor a child and I love doing it. Many people question how much of the money the children actually receive. On World Vision’s web page you can see their financial summary and where the money goes. As an Ambassador, I know it is in good hands

These little kids are incredibly blessed from this and so are their sponsors. Growing up, my parents supported a young girl in Kenya, now she is in 20s and has been given an education her parents could never have afforded. Please stop and think about doing the same. This is the link to my ambassador page. 

If you want to make a difference in someone’s life, this is one of the best ways to do it. The letters you send back and forth are an amazing connection and opens your eyes to a new culture and group of people. 

I will never stop working to help these children because I feel very passionately that giving them the love they need can save the world. Please consider helping a little boy or girl somewhere far away that may have no one else but you to love them. 

If you have questions and would like to speak with me personally about sponsoring a child, then please fill out the form below and I will get in contact with you! You are under no obligation to sponsor, however.

  1. I am glad to meet you. You give me hope for tomorrows world. Yes, love for oneself and other is the highest good. I love sharing my time with a friend in need.Or, sharing information to help another person. I wrote a book of poetry that invites others to journey within and discover their Divine Self. It addresses the question of the purpose of life and transforming what no longer works into other possibilities. This odyssey of becoming requires courage and a rebirth, but well worth the effort. http://www.wintersmystery.com/

  2. Thanks for sharing! I sponsored a child with the “Because I am A Girl” campaign and really enjoyed the experience. Glad you are shedding more light on a subject that could use the positive attention!

  3. I am happy that you are using your blog to promote this wonderful cause. I have had the opportunity to work with children in Guatemala and found it life changing. We take so much for granted in America. I hope that you will be able to meet the children who you are sponsoring. Keep up the good work!

    • Thanks for your kind words! I haven’t been able to go abroad and work with these kids but someday I’d really like to! Everyday I thank God for what I have because I have so much more than others!

  4. This is great! I always love to hear experiences from people who actually participate in child sponsoring programs. I have always wanted to but never knew which ones were legit and provided the best opportunities for the children involved. Thanks for sharing your experience and inspiring others!

    • I’m so glad you were inspired! There are certainly a lot of scams out there but World Vision is legit ( or else I wouldn’t volunteer for them). I was impressed with the work they did from the start. They help build communities and teach people skills and basic knowledge so that their area can thrive economically. It isn’t just sending a kid to school, it’s helping an entire community. If you’re interested in learning more or talking to me about child sponsorship I can give you my email address!

  5. Thank you so much, Emily! Its nice to hear that other people are passionate about helping kids who really are in need of help! Thanks for what you do also!

  6. If there was a button “LOVE”, I would love it 1,000 times! We also are involved in some charities… mainly dealing with orphan care. That’s our passion. Thanks for sharing this… World Vision International is amazing. We work a lot with World Help and host the Children of the World choir. 🙂 So fun and such a great opportunity. Anyhow, great work!!!
