Five Reasons to ‘Like’ ChildFund on Facebook

 Afghan girl on swing

Here at ChildFund we believe in leaving no stone unturned in our quest to share the stories of incredible children around the world who need assistance to reach their dreams.

Social media, and especially Facebook, is providing exciting ways to engage with ChildFund sponsors and to build an online community dedicated to helping children.

Our Facebook welcome page for new fans provides a quick introduction to ChildFund, with FAQs, a feed to the ChildFund blog and a video link. We’re also inviting fans to help “build some fun” (in the form of a playground) for children in Afghanistan.

We invite you to take a few minutes to check out the new landing page. If you’re already a fan of ChildFund, when you visit the page, just click on the “Build Some Fun” tab to see the welcome page.

And if you’ve not yet “liked” ChildFund on Facebook, here are five reasons to join the conversation:

#5 You’ll get daily updates on ChildFund’s efforts to improve children’s lives. (Remember, when you become a fan of a nonprofit page, it only means you receive updates in your news feed — we never see your personal updates.)

#4 You can post comments and photos, ask questions and share experiences with fellow sponsors who have a passion for supporting children living in poverty.

#3 You’ll be among the first to know about emergency situations that arise in countries where ChildFund works and how the organization is responding.

#2 You can participate in Facebook-exclusive events, such as the upcoming wall chat with ChildFund’s CEO and President Anne Lynam Goddard and our special project to build a playground for children in Afghanistan.

#1 You will be a valued ambassador for ChildFund, sharing the impact of child sponsorship with your network of friends. The more people who learn about our work and become engaged in sponsorship and other projects, the more children who will be helped around the world.

Thank you for your support! Your ideas and comments on our social media efforts are always welcome. Tell us your thoughts on Facebook, or e-mail us.
