Q. My childís photo shows him with a frayed shirt and tattered shoes. Isnít clothing one of the benefits of sponsorship?
A. Yes, clothing is one of the benefits of sponsorship, and many projects provide new dress clothes for sponsored children, youth and aging members each year.
Some of the quarter million photos we process each year, however, show children in worn clothing. The reason could be as simple as the child forgot to tell his mother that tomorrow was CFCA picture day.
Most mothers want their children to be photographed in a nice outfit, even if that clothing is borrowed from a neighbor, or is the only dress clothing they own.
Keep that in mind if your child is photographed wearing an exceptionally fine outfit. It may be one of the few times of the year he or she dresses so well.
