Get your craft on: D.I.Y. collage photo frame

Veronica

By Veronica Batton, CFCA writer/editor

What’s one thing sponsored friends like to receive more than letters from their sponsors? Photos from their sponsors, of course!

Photos are a great way to show you care. Sponsored friends can look at a photo of their sponsor and know that someone, somewhere, is rooting for them to succeed.

My friend, Thilothammal in Chennai, India, has been asking me for a photo. Instead of sending her a regular photo of my husband and me, I decided to take my craft skills to the next level.

Get ready to love this.

The Walk with the Poor brochure was created to encourage young people to go to the Walk with the Poor section on our website and learn how they can impact global poverty by helping a student finish school.

The Best of Show Award is selected from the first-place winners in 11 categories.
