Q. Does CFCA have any guidelines I should follow to write about my sponsorship online or in print?
A. Telling your story is one of the best ways you can help spread the good news of sponsorship. Blogs, Web sites and social networking tools such as Facebook and Twitter provide sponsors with outlets to share your experiences and encourage others to connect with a child or aging person living in poverty. We do ask that you follow a few simple guidelines for the protection and privacy of sponsored children, aging friends and families.
Please use only the first name, age and country when identifying sponsored friends and their families online or in print. We ask that you refrain from including last names, specific locations or other personal information that could compromise the security or privacy of sponsored friends and their families. Also, please do not post or reproduce the family record included with your sponsorship materials.
Thank you for sharing your sponsorship experience, and helping to ensure the safety and privacy of those we serve.
