Review for ChildFund International, Richmond, VA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I started sponsoring a child at the beginning of the Spring and was initially concerned because it took many months to get my first letter - almost four. Because my child was located in the US on a reservation, I knew it was not taking very long for mail to arrive. Recently, however, I've started to receive a lot more letters and correspondence from him (I did have to complain once that I was not getting letters). As far as the huge assessment of 20% on monetary gifts, I just sent my sponsored child some Christmas money and paid only $3.50 so it seems they've changed their policies on that front. I have to say that now that I am getting regular letters, this is a wonderful feeling - to personally impact one person's life. I can see that internationally this would be much more challenging for a whole slew of reasons - but you can choose to send a gift within the US!
