A New Year Filled With Hope for the Future

Share this Story

WRITTEN BY Robbie Peterson

We are entering the new year filled with hope. You will too as you see how your sponsorship will continue to bring hope and change into the life of sponsored children and their communities.

See how you’ll be making a difference throughout this new year!


Goals For the Future

When we enter a new year, we are often filled with hope, we have dreams, and we prayerfully set goals for the future.

Your sponsorship supports children to similarly dream and set goals. Once, they had little hope and didn’t even think about the future. But your sponsorship has made all the difference! Your partnership gives your sponsored child the support needed to think about the future. And we thank you for that!

Free to Dream

Now, because of your generosity, your sponsored child is filled with hope and is free to dream and live out their God-given potential.

When children dream, they recognize their potential and value. And more importantly, they recognize they are a child of God and He has a plan for them and their future.

Plus, you are also supporting your sponsored child’s community to dream and set goals. Community leaders are able to plan projects and initiatives that will improve the lives of so many children and families.

Be Filled with Hope

You can be filled with hope knowing goals and dreams of children and communities will be reached in 2022 because of your support.

Gift Policy:
You may send small, flat paper-based items that can fit into a standard #10 size envelope, have a value of less than $5 dollars and weigh less than 4 ounces. We ask that you send small, flat items of this size because shipping is expensive and even small gift items can cause issues clearing customs.
You can send postcards or photographs, however, we ask that you visit here for more details about culturally appropriate guidelines for photos and other images. Please write the child’s ID # on the back of each item that you enclose with your letter to ensure that it reaches him/her.
Best gifts to send your sponsored child:
  • Paper dolls
  • Postcards
  • Pictures of yourself or family
  • Sports cards, individual cards (baseball, soccer, football)
  • Stickers (flat, paper-based, only a few at a time)

  • Please do NOT send:
  • Monetary gifts
