Walking with sponsored children

Our “8,000 miles for 8,000 kids” campaign inspired by Walk2gether is close to completion!

However, the ripple effects throughout the communities that CFCA President Bob Hentzen visited along the walk will be continuing for quite some time.

We’re thrilled to share the reflections of three CFCA project coordinators in some of the countries that Walk2gether passed through.

Please feel free to share this video with other people who might be interested in sponsoring children in need.

As of today, we’ve found sponsors for 6,459 children. We’re working hard to reach our original goal of getting 8,000 kids sponsored and asking for your help in meeting it. Who knows, you could help us find a sponsor for the 6,460th child!

#8000kids update: We have the best Twitter followers in the world! Thanks so much to everyone who used the hashtag #8000kids to raise awareness of this campaign and bring hope to people living in poverty.

We actually exceeded our goal of 200 tweets (see our previous blog post about sharing CFCA on Twitter) for the year. Last time we checked, it was 231 tweets and counting!

As a result, at least $231 from generous donors will be given to the CFCA Scholarship Program.

Any more tweets with the #8000kids hashtag from now until the end of the year is just additional icing on the cake!
