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.
On Unbound’s first blogger trip, our social media coordinator, Victoria Brown, not only met with sponsored families but was also immersed in the Salvadoran culture. Read more to find out some of the things Victoria learned on her visit.
At Unbound, sponsorship helps children go to school, have healthy diets and improves the living situation for the entire family.
But it’s more than just tangible goods.
Sponsorship also creates a one-to-one connection between the sponsor and the sponsored friend. They get to know one another through notes and photos, and the sponsor gets to see how sponsorship impacts the sponsored friend’s life.
Neha, Mateo and Daphine are all waiting to start that connection.
Help us find sponsors for these three kids. Share this post on social media and let’s get them sponsored.
My 11-year-old daughter, Anna, and I traveled to Honduras with an Unbound Awareness Trip to meet our sponsored child, Jaeli, and her mother, Lorenza. It was wonderful to meet the little girl whom we had come to know through letters for the past two years. We knew a few things about her family and her life, but we were completely unprepared to learn what a huge difference our sponsorship makes in their daily lives.
