CFCA receives birthday donation from 9-year-old

This precious letter from the daughter of two CFCA sponsors made our day!


ìDear workers at the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging,

My name is Zoe. I am donating some money toward this foundation. My family sponsors Ariel, so I thought that it would be nice to collect money for the Christian Foundation.

I have been collecting money or items for different businesses for five years now. I ask for items or money for different businesses at my birthday parties. This year, on my ninth birthday, I asked for money for this business instead of birthday presents.

I collected $80.00, which you will find enclosed in this envelope.

I am glad to be helping people like Ariel. So are Mom and Dad.


A word from her parents: “Zoe decided on her own to collect money for her birthday for CFCA, and she wrote her letter to you on her own – we did not help. Also, since this picture was taken, she donated her hair to “Locks of Love” in honor of her grandma who is a cancer survivor.”

  1. Dear Zoe. My name is Henry Flores. I have been serving the sponsored members, through the CFCA Project in El Salvador, for the past 16 years. Your contribution is a wonderful example of reaching out to our brothers and sisters who are in need. Your example is the energy that moves us, field servants, to continue with this mission because we know that special people like you, and your friend Ariel, are the salt and life of this world. May God bless you, your family and Ariel, thank you very much for being such an special girl.
