“Just the Beginning”

Today we celebrated our new name and our commitment to the children we serve. See the video above and the photos below of highlights from the event at our International Office in Richmond, Va.

Mick Foley

“During my visit to Sierra Leone, one chief said to me that more than anything, children need sponsors. It makes them feel special and wanted and brings out the best in these kids.”
– Mick Foley, well-known wrestler and ChildFund donor since 1992

Anne Goddard

“Our belief is that the well-being of all children leads to the well-being of the world … if we can help children thrive throughout all stages of life they will become leaders of enduring change … our proud past is a prologue. The work we have done is just the beginning of the work we have yet to do.”
– Anne Lynam Goddard, President and CEO of ChildFund International

Jim Lindsey“Children are the future; the future of our country; the future of every country; the future of our planet.”

One Response to “Just the Beginning”

  • The launching at Richmond seemed colorful. I liked the President’s comment. Indeed “if we go together, we can go far…” Nice one!

    Thanks!
