At Unbound we are sometimes asked whether we do anything to help children and families here in the United States. We are happy to say that the answer is “yes!”
Unbound supports several U.S.-based nonprofit causes with financial contributions, volunteering and collecting supplies. Unbound has an especially close relationship with Operation Breakthrough, a child care center located in the urban core of Kansas City, Mo., not far from our headquarters.
We are proud to support the mothers and children who are challenging poverty in order to have a better life. Unbound salutes the founder of Operation Breakthrough, Sister Berta Sailer, for her work with families.

Most mornings, Yurani walks alone to the bus that takes her to the local university, a short 15-minute ride away.
Though she walks alone, Yurani knows she has her family and the entire Unbound community beside her.
Before heading off to catch a bus, Yurani helps her younger brother, Daniel, make the bed. Some weekdays, she also helps her mother prepare lunch for the whole family.
For Yurani, cooking meals is one of her favorite chores, and it gives her good practice for her studies. Yurani is studying gastronomy, or the art and science of gourmet cuisine.
“When I was younger my dream was to be a chef,” Yurani said. “[Now] my dream is to have my own restaurant.”

So you can imagine the questions I had about child sponsorship when I first came to work at Unbound in the winter of 2009. I had a list, a long list, of questions that were answered and put to rest.
I’ve added questions and answers to that list since working here, and I truly feel that Unbound is the best sponsorship organization out there. I sponsor Thilothammal in Chennai, India, and I feel grateful to be part of something that’s spreading good things around the world.
So as a sponsor, a REAL sponsor, I’m going to give you honest information and true facts to help guide you and your decision about becoming an Unbound sponsor.
Here are some common questions or “myths” about sponsorship.
