Resolution of a New-ish ChildFund Employee

Just to be divergent, I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions. Deep down inside, I know I won’t go to the gym every day in January. So why resolve?

But there is one thing I intend to do as the New Year dawns — sponsor a child through ChildFund.

There, I’ve said it in black and white. It’s out there, so I know I’ll hold myself accountable.

It’s something I’ve been planning to do since joining the ChildFund staff this past fall. Child sponsorship is key to our mission, and I believe this personal connection with a child in another part of the world will bring context to my work — and be a personal joy.

So as my husband and I sit down to review the Sponsor a Child section of the ChildFund Web site, I invite you to do the same.

With so many children waiting with open arms, I can’t procrastinate any longer. To me, it’s the perfect way to close out 2009 — with hope for a better world in 2010.

Happy New Year!
