Greetings!

The deadline to make your 2018 tax-deductible donations is just a couple of short weeks away. We at Child Foundation have prepared what you need to make your giving effective, efficient and impactful.

Visit our campaigns pages here to see what options are available for you but most importantly, we ask you to consider helping a child to have access to education. Please visit our waiting list here to select the student who can benefit from your generosity.

I wanted to share with you a list of our 2018 accomplishments. The list is too long and you to take a look at it here. These achievements could not be possible without your help. Lets make 2019 achievements more grad.

Soroush is a 10-year old student from Ahwaz, Iran. He is studying in 4th grade and has a very good GPA.

Soroush is the only child of the family, and he, with his family, lives in his maternal grandfather’s house. By giving up his alimony, Soroush’s mother has taken his custody. The family’s living expenses were covered by a charity. However, after applying for and accepting the Empowering Loan, they were no longer eligible for receiving charitable aides. After getting the loan, Soroush’s mom rented a flea shop, but after a while, she bankrupted and closed her shop. Since she is highly talented in wall painting and drawing, she is looking to find a job in that area.

With your support, we can help make a bright and better future for Soroush and fuel progress in his education.

After reviewing Soroush’s talents, interest, and motivations and taking into consideration the financial needs of the family, Child Foundation has granted a $50/Month Scholarship to the student. Join us in creating a better future for him. Please take action and sponsor Soroush with a minimum of $30 per month.

 To preserve the privacy of the children and their families, Child Foundation will only provide details of each child to their designated sponsor.

Volunteer and Be Happy
If we want to change the world through good deed and action, we need a long-term plan. Effective charity work should not stop with us, it should continue with the next generation.

We want to share with you an article in Forbes Magazine about how the charitable children make for happier adults. Teaching our children to do good is not only good for the world, it helps them to be better people as well. So, don’t let your children hide behind the iPad, Xbox or PlayStation; bring them into the light and introduce values of helping others.

Some of the tips are that you should start them young, share your stories and values, introduce them to available platforms like Child Foundation, and make a joint volunteer project, but most importantly make it a habit.

If you wish to volunteer for Child Foundation for a fundraiser event or other projects, please contact us or complete a volunteer application here .
