Please, can you help us to FIND A FRIEND?
Each one of us who sponsors a Happy House child has become a part of a very special family... we know how much pleasure it brings to us, so now we are appealing to each and every one of our sponsors to help us by Finding a Friend who will also sponsor.
We would like to double the number of sponsors we have over the next few months, giving us the financial security we need, as a charity, to raise our family.
Thanks to the remarkable insight and vision of Mama Sue, our unique sponsor scheme not only changes the life of her children, it also changes our sponsors' lives too.
By aiming to create sponsor families for each child, our children have a very good chance of forging real friendships with at least a couple of their sponsors as, we appreciate and understand, some want to be more actively involved than others.
The daily blog on our website and our Facebook page give sponsors a chance to follow daily life at the Happy House and good chance to catch a glimpse of their child.
Each of our children, those old enough to understand, looks upon their sponsors as special friends. They, too, look forward to getting letters, emails, postcards, and photos from these friends and to storing them away safely as treasures in their memory boxes. Many sponsors save hard to visit the Happy House and meet their child, which brings so many joys.
The sponsor scheme, importantly, brings in a regular, guaranteed, income to our small charity and will, eventually, go along way to underpinning our running costs..
We cannot do this without YOUR help.
An important part of fundraising drive is our Find a Friend Appeal . We are asking each of you, who know and love your own sponsor child, to share the joy this brings to you with your friends.
Please, help our family by signing up a new sponsor.
For £20 a month (the cost of a couple of takeaway meals,or a night out) they can change a child's life.
It's a small price to pay to give a child, who has known hunger, fear and pain, a family home where they are loved, cherished and educated.
A childhood free from fear and neglect, with the freedom to play and grow, is the priceless gift you are giving to your Happy House child.
Please share your Happy House friendship with others - family, friends and colleagues - and please, please, FIND A FRIEND for a Happy House child.
