Three Cheers for ChildFund Volunteers!

by Kate Nare, ChildFund Marketing Specialist

This week is National Volunteer Week, so we’re taking a moment to send a big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers at ChildFund’s LIVE! concert series.

Since February, ChildFund has been on a whirlwind, nationwide tour with Thompson Square. During each concert, the husband and wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, who sponsor a young girl from Indonesia, take a moment to describe the difference each fan can make in a child’s life through child sponsorship.

ChildFund relies on the help of current sponsors to volunteer at the events and share their experiences of sponsoring a child with concert-goers. Volunteers are stationed at the ChildFund booth, ready to have conversations with fans about how sponsorship can change the life of a child. The table is lined with packets of children ready to be sponsored that evening.

Talking with concert-goers before the show and during intermission, Alan shared photos and letters from his sponsored child, Carla Beatriz, a little girl from Brazil whom he has sponsored since 2009.

“My experience at the concert was amazing,” Alan says. “It was very self-rewarding to volunteer for such a great cause. With meeting new people, listening to great music – and let’s not forget saving lives as well — it was an overall awesome experience that I was proud to be a part of!”

Thank you, Alan, and all of our stellar concert volunteers. You’re helping ChildFund spread the word about how sponsorship changes the life of a child living in poverty.
