OUR MOTTO: “SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING”
The Child Help Fund’s motto for donation collection is that “something is better than nothing” because many people feel as though they should not donate to a worthy cause unless they have a substantial amount to dedicate. But SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING. But there is a lot we can do with the spare change in your couch cushion or that $30 dinner date!
Consider this: some of the medications that we purchase for Honduran children with epilepsy cost only $30/month but they often go without because their families cannot afford it. Ivan was one such case (suffering from both downsyndrome and epilepsy) until he was able to get his medications paid for by the Child Help Fund.
Consider also the story of Karlita: a 15-year old girl who is under pressure from her family to quit high school because they could not afford the bus fare or school uniform. The Child Help Fund is helping Karlita as part of its education initiative and she is thriving. The Child Help Fund has even done creative initiatives like delivering hundreds of disposable diapers to Wendy (who suffers malnutrition and down syndrome) and those diapers were so important because she previously only had access to cloth diapers resulting in only one change per day since her widowed mother was forced to work leaving Wendy at home to be cared for by her 10 and 12-year old brothers.
Indeed, there are a lot of comforts that we routinely take for granted but donation to the Child Help Fund can bring some of those comforts to the less fortunate children of Honduras.
There are many more stories of children that have received help from the small donations given to the Child Help Fund. Those who donate to the Child Help Fund can have confidence that the organization understands the sacred trust that accompanies donations to administer the funds appropriately. 99% of all donations received by the Child Help Fund are $99 or less but 100% of such funds are used to benefit needy children (and 0% of any donations are used to pay administrative costs, salaries, marketing, etc.).
PLEASE SHARE WHAT YOU CAN SPARE!
Why give to the Child Help Fund? We realize how many incredible organizations and noble causes there are out there. And we realize that you have a choice when it comes to which ones you get involved with and support. We hope you’ll consider giving to The Child Help Fund – and hope we can give you a few reasons to do just that.
Our children. The Child Help Fund serves children of all ages, races and socioeconomic backgrounds (within the Honduras, San Pedro Sula Community). These are children with irresistible grins, vivid imaginations and incredible potential – but sharing one unfortunate commonality: they suffer from disabilities, abuse, neglect, or extreme poverty which prevents them from getting the care they need.
Our need. We don’t receive federal or state/local government funding and we are not a United Way agency; we rely on small individual donation to help our children.
How will my donation make a difference? Very simply, all donations are directly appropriated for medical needs (i.e. physical, mental, or emotional) and/or educational needs of specific children in accordance with the Fund’s Mission Statement and Philosophy. The number of child recipients is purposefully limited to a small number in order to maximize the amount of good that can be done individually and to avoid merely skimming the surface for a large number of children. Also, no director, officer, or volunteer for the Child Help Fund receives any sort of compensation for their services, indeed, this truly is a NON-Profit Organization.
So please feel free to make a donation to this great organization and with your support, we can continue to touch the lives of many children that so desperately need our help.
