The story, faces behind our CFCA ‘thank-you’ video

By Judy-Anne Goldman, CFCA multimedia manager/producer

Sometimes someone says ìThank youî and you know that theyíre speaking from their soul. Those two words carry a profound meaning.

You know the person saying it has been deeply touched. You can see it in their eyes.

This video carries that kind of a message. Many of them!

CFCA communications correspondents in El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Kenya and the Philippines visited sponsored friends to capture their special messages to their sponsors, and to all sponsors who support people living in poverty.

The footage was taped in the past three months and then sent to CFCA’s Kansas City headquarters to be edited.

It’s really exciting that so many people worked together from so many different parts of the world to send such a short but powerful message in so many different languages!

I couldnít end this post without a HUGE thanks to our amazing video team: Henry and Ana Cristina in El Salvador; Luis, Gerver and Ricardo in Guatemala, Sreekanth in India, Regina in Kenya, to the team in Quezon City, Philippines; and to Michele in Kansas City for her fantastic editing skills.

And thank you for your continued support of CFCA and of families living in poverty around the world!
