We’d like to introduce Missy, a new sponsor, who lives in Chicago. Missy discovered CFCA through our website, www.cfcausa.org, and has been sponsoring since June. She started by sponsoring an aging friend, then added a child and youth to her sponsorships.
I actually just came across this site while browsing around online. It may have been an “accident,” or perhaps, I was gently brought to it.
My philosophy is no one should ever have to suffer, and that includes people everywhere all over the planet, which basically goes hand in hand with CFCA’s mission: “Our mission is to walk with the poor and marginalized of the world so they may live with dignity and participate fully in society.”
Whatever I can do to help alleviate the suffering of others, I will do so.
So far, has the experience of sponsorship matched up with any expectations you had when you started? Have there been any surprises or new things you’ve learned along the way?
It has really exceeded my expectations. It’s not just a handout each month and that’s the end of it.
What I love is that you help provide essential benefits to help people climb out of poverty.
You also get the chance to be encouraging and to develop a special friendship, which to me is absolutely priceless. Plus, I am inspired by my sponsored friends.
You have sponsored friends across all ages! What have been some of the similarities and differences in getting to know each of them? See Missy’s answer
