8000 for 8000

Have you ever thought about sponsoring a child or adult in need? 

 The president of CFCA walked 8000 miles between December 2009 and June 2011 to bring attention to families in poverty.  He would like to have 8000 children sponsored, one for each mile he walked.  If you would like to help him reach his goal and make a difference in a child’s life, you can go HERE to get started or just to get more information. 

I can attest to how wonderful the sponsorship experience is.  We’ve been sponsoring Ivan from Colombia since 2009.  It’s one of the best things we’ve ever done.  We just received his Christmas card last week, complete with a recent picture.  He’s just adorable and it’s been great to see how he’s grown throughout the last two years.   

There are so many WONDERFUL organizations out there but here are two of the top reasons why we chose to sponsor a child through CFCA:

1.  This website evaluates the different charities.  They gave CFCA 4 out of 4 stars.  I think it’s huge that 94.1% of the money raised goes right to the program.     

2.  I live in Kansas City so I love that CFCA is based here. 

Think about it:)


We’ve done an 8000 for 8000 workout over at MDS to show support for what he’s doing.

    I would love to sponsor a child. I’m on a fixed income and waiting for a raise I will get next month.

  2. Thank you for sharing this, Suzanne! You did a great job of summarizing the wonderful things about CFCA and conveying your personal passion for it! We got to meet our family’s sponsored child this summer (and gain another!) and I am helping find a sponsor for another Guatemalan child (pray for me would ya?!). Blessings to you….
