What Does it Mean to be a Child Sponsor?

June 1 is International Children’s Day. Join us as we celebrate children all over the world. We’ll be sharing stories all over our social channels from our Child Sponsors under #WhyISponsor, and encouraging others to take the step and make a difference in a child's life.

This International Children's Day please help us rally around what it means to be a child sponsor.

Here's what you can do in 3 easy steps:

  1. Create a sign with one or two words to complete this sentence – “I sponsor because I wish all children could feel...”
  2. Take a selfie holding your sign
  3. Post your selfie to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram tagging @SavetheChildren with the hashtag #WhyISponsor

Not yet a sponsor? Join our Sponsorship family and change the life of a child in need!

For about $1 a day, you can change the life of a child by becoming a child sponsor. Sponsoring a child helps provide girls and boys with a healthy and successful start to life — early childhood development, education, school health. Your generosity helps your sponsored child and lifts entire communities.

This International Children’s Day, consider joining us as a Child Sponsor. Somewhere out there, a little girl or boy is waiting for you to become their sponsor.

Welcome!
