Our copy of Volunteer Connection from CFCA arrived in the mail today and I wanted to share some of the campaigns going on right now.
CFCA President and Co-founder Bob Hentzen walked 8,000 miles recently (what an amazing man!) and is hoping to find sponsors for 8,000 children in honor of the walk, one for each mile. I checked the website (it was here when I was looking recently) and they had over 4,500. Please prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. You can read about our experiences as a sponsor family here. View profiles at the CFCA website. There's even a search feature if you'd like to sponsor a child of a certain age or in a certain country.
In other news, CFCA is hosting a benefit concert in Kansas! We are unable to attend with about 20 other things going on that weekend (alright, 3, but one of them is First Daughter's birthday and the concert would be a bit of a drive - Kansas is big, you know), but if you will be in the area, check it out!
Shine a Light: A CFCA Benefit Concert at The Theatre in the Park in Shawnee, KS
Sunday, September 25th
Find all the details and purchase tickets at their website.
We sponsor a child through Christian Foundation for Children and Aging,
an organization that creates relationships between sponsors in the
United States and children, youth and aging persons in 23 developing
countries. Through its Hope for a Family program, our contributions
provide life-changing benefits such as education, nutrition, clothing
and medical care for our sponsored friend. Through letter writing we
are able to learn about our sponsored friend's life and offer our
encouragement and prayers.
Grounded in the Gospel call to serve the poor, CFCA works with people
of all faith traditions. CFCA receives the highest ratings from Charity
Navigator and the American Institute of Philanthropy.
