Sponsor a child and commit to writing regularly.
Sponsoring a child is one of the best ways that you can help ChildFund fight poverty and bring hope to the lives of children across the globe. For around $1 per day --- less than the price of a cup of coffee --- you can help us provide children in need with food, clean water, education and health care. Not only does sponsorship make a real difference in a child's life, it also provides you with the opportunity to learn more about their hopes, dreams and daily activities. Many sponsors write to children regularly and find this aspect of sponsorship to be particularly rewarding. If you are thinking about sponsoring a child, why not commit to writing to him or her every month?
A Learning Experience
Many sponsors write to the children they help because it personalizes the experience in a rewarding way. In return, you'll often receive letters and pictures describing the child's everyday life. Letters provide a glimpse into the child's world and give firsthand proof of how your support makes a tangible difference.
Exchanging letters provides hope for children growing up in difficult circumstances. By writing regularly, you let your sponsored child know that someone out there cares about him or her. Many sponsors form friendships with the children and families they assist.

As of Jan. 27, the United States Postal Service increased the international postage rate for 1 ounce letters to $1.10, up from $1.05. You can buy new global “forever” stamps in bulk from your local post office. That way, you'll be prepared to write as often as you want.
In today's hectic world, it is all too easy to lose sight of what is really important. Please consider sponsoring a child and writing regularly part of your plans for 2013.
