A few weeks ago we told you about an upcoming blog series — “31 in 31.” During the 31 days of October, we’ll be traveling the globe to highlight each of the countries where ChildFund International is at work. We’ll share insights about our programs and background on the countries. You’ll get to meet some of the children we help and you’ll hear firsthand from several ChildFund staff members who work in the field.
The best part is that you don’t have to pack your bags, find your passport or stand in line to go through security to share in these adventures. We’ll bring it to you each day directly through our blog.
For example, when we visit Honduras, you’ll hear from youth in a community about how poverty impacts their lives. In Guatemala, a staff member who is currently visiting our programs there will update you on the latest ChildFund activities in that country. Also during the month we’ll give you even more insight into our traveling toy exhibit, “The Power to Play – from Trash to Treasure,” by telling you the firsthand stories of where many of the toys originated. We’ll have lots of photos from the field to share as well.
We hope in the next 31 days that you have a better understanding of the work that we do. We want to use this month as a way to let you know what your contributions are doing. Or, if you’re not currently a supporter, we hope that this series sparks something in you to help change a child’s life.
As always, we welcome your questions, comments and suggestions. So check back every day in October and learn something new about the 31 countries we work in! We’ll kick things off tomorrow by taking a look at ChildFund International at work in the United States.
