Why You Should Sponsor a Child for Christmas

Children are part of God’s incredible creation. While filled with innocence, many live in harsh conditions and are unable to get access to everyday living essentials.

Through your sponsorship this Christmas, you can help a child thrive where they are and help them become stronger physically and spiritually.

When you sponsor a child, they receive the gift of hope. This gift reminds them of the gift God gave us in Jesus. It’s a lifeline that can play a powerful role in breaking the cycle of poverty for that child, their family and even their broader community.

How to Sponsor a Child for Christmas

To sponsor a child this Christmas, follow these simple steps:

  1. Select a child to sponsor: Select any child on our website. You can choose based on the child’s birthday or even choose a child from a country you wish to visit. There isn’t a wrong choice—each child is deserving of love!
  2. Finalize your sponsorship: During this next step, we’ll obtain details about you to finalize your sponsorship. You’ll then receive a welcome packet within 10 days, complete with photos of your child.
  3. Build a connection with your child: Welcome to sponsorship! It’s now time to get to know the child you’re supporting by writing letters to them often and praying for their needs.

Child sponsorship is a beautiful thing. It connects two (or more) families together and provides them with a feeling of compassion, love and protection. The connection of lives and homes is a wonderful reminder of the heart of God for connecting human beings to Him and each other.

Children are a Gift from the Lord

Children who are struggling and those who are thriving have a deep need to be loved. All children are a gift from the Lord, meant to be cared for and cherished.

Children in poverty face significant challenges that threaten to keep them trapped in the cycle of poverty. Share your kindness this holiday season and help a child who needs it most by becoming a sponsor today.

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.

- Psalm 127:3
