Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to reflect on the many blessings we are grateful for. Why not take a moment to give thanks for the sponsored child or elderly friend in your life?
Here are four ideas for remembering your sponsored friend during this special day.
1. Add a new dining tradition to your Thanksgiving meal. Research a recipe from your sponsored friend’s country and serve it with all your other favorites. Family and friends will have many questions, and you can share with them about CFCA.
2. Give thanks for your sponsored friend by keeping a photo nearby. Share with your guests why sponsorship is important to you.
3. Contact CFCA to receive a profile of a child or aging friend awaiting sponsorship. This Thanksgiving, inspire someone else to make a difference.
4. Say one thing you appreciate about the person sitting next to you at the Thanksgiving table, and go around the room until everyone has had a chance to participate. Include your sponsored friend as one of the people you’re thankful for.
If you have other ideas of how you and your family can incorporate CFCA into your own holiday traditions, we’d love to hear them.
In just one example, the Hubbards creatively made Christmas tree ornaments of children awaiting sponsorship last year.
