Changing the World, One Child at a Time
Kevin shared his inspiring story with us after celebrating his one year anniversary as a proud sponsor of Delfina:
“Do you want to change the world? If you do, then did you know that you actually could?
No, you don’t have to win a Nobel Peace Prize or find a cure for cancer (although both would be great)! All you have to do is recognize the opportunities you have right in front of you.
That happened for me in November of 2014 while I was on my way to CVS. The opportunity to change the lives of a family thousands of miles away walked right up to me in a red shirt.
That was the day I found out about Save the Children Sponsorship and the amazing work that they do. To me, it was a no brainer: for the amount of money I would normally spend on coffee and snacks throughout the month, I could help a community prosper in an area that needs it most.
The most attractive part about this was that I got partnered with a beautiful little girl in Mozambique, Africa to be pen-pals.
Not only do I get to contribute to helping a part of the world grow, expand, and become more, but I also get to build a relationship with a child in the area that’s benefiting from my decision.
It’s been over a year since I’ve started sponsoring with Save the Children and I will never look back. I consider my friendship with Delfina lifelong and my dream is to go visit her and her family very soon.
Ever since I can remember, I wanted to change the world and I knew in my heart I would. Never in my wildest dreams did I know that it would be this easy and this much fun.
Thank you, Save the Children. Becoming a sponsor was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.”
