How to Sponsor a Child
Sponsor a child yourself, for your whole family, or on behalf of a friend or family member. Fill out the form below and indicate the name of the child that you’d like to sponsor from the slideshow above. We’ll send you more information on your child, and he or she will write you a letter personally several times each year. If you are sponsoring a child on behalf of another, please enter his or her name in the “Sponsor’s Name” text box below and indicate their relationship to you (child, grandchild, friend, etc.) in the “Relationship” box. The sponsored child will address their letter directly to this person.
Children Helping Children
Sponsoring on behalf of a child or grandchild will help instill in them an appreciation of their abundances and help give them a better understanding of the life of a child in a developing country. Let them feel the pride of giving and helping those less fortunate. Help spread humanitarian efforts from generation to generation. Include your child or grandchild’s name(s) on the sponsorship form and let this be the beginning of your dialogue about helping others. In years to come they will thank you for this gift.

Sponsor A Child
Hands for Haiti will have 230 children in school for the 2011-2012 school year: Eight (8) classes from pre-K through 5th grade. For each one of our kids we’ll need to provide textbooks, school supplies, meals and medical exams, in addition to paying our teachers’ salaries.
Meeting our monthly costs is our most difficult challenge. Serving just one meal each day for our kids means that we’re providing nearly 7000 meals per month— a daunting task, yet vital when you consider that for many of our children, the meal they receive at school is their only meal of the day.
Sponsor a child by donating $37 a month and we’ll use those funds to help feed and educate our kids, providing textbooks, meals and everything else they’ll need to give them the best education possible. Include the name of child you’d like to sponsor in the donation form, and he or she will send you two or three letters each year. Your sponsorship will help change lives, and as with any donation to us, every dollar you give will go directly to Haiti to help our kids. All administrative costs are covered annually by our board members.
