The Unbound family is just as bright and colorful as our logo. We’ve put together a bunch of photos to show you just how colorful our communities around the world can be.
“After meeting Mimi and her family my life was different. I learned it doesn’t take much to be happy. Edgar’s family had next to nothing but had the biggest smiles.” —David Ziegler, Minnesota
At 17, David Ziegler had the opportunity to travel with a church group to build a school in Guatemala. He wasn’t expecting to build a friendship that is still growing eight years later.

Bernie and Connie Tadda have been Unbound sponsors for 16 years. They and their daughter, Mary Kim, recently participated in an Unbound Awareness Trip to Guatemala and shared their experience with us.
Meeting our two sponsored friends was like taking a two-dimensional relationship and turning it into 3-D. The love and graciousness we experienced were overwhelming.
Tomorrow, June 21, marks the official first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Summer is a time for many people to spend outdoors and soak up the sun. To celebrate the season, here’s a photo gallery of sponsored children around the world showing you what they love to do in warmer weather.
Graduation season is here, and we couldn’t be more proud of all of those who are achieving their dreams of education. Whether it’s finishing high school or completing a higher education, all of these grads have a lot to celebrate.
Help students like these achieve their dreams. Sponsor today!

In March, I traveled with a group of fellow Rockhurst University students to San Lucas Tolimán, Guatemala, for a weeklong service-immersion trip. While preparing for this trip, I did the usual: packed, attended pre-trip meetings and made sure I was caught up on shots and vaccines.
During this time, I also filled out paperwork for an individual sponsor visit through Unbound. Four other women and I were going to have the opportunity to visit the child our sorority, Alpha Sigma Alpha, sponsors. We filled out our paperwork, communicated with Unbound, and set up a date and time to meet our sponsored child, Adriana.
Every Monday on Instagram, we celebrate mothers of sponsored children and their efforts to create a better life for their families. Our #MotherMonday hashtag game shows the faces of mothers around the world, and we want you to add to our collage.
Post a photo of your mom or a photo of you with your mom, tag @Unboundorg and use the hashtag #MotherMonday.
