Sponsoring a child in need and changing lives for good makes for a great New Year’s resolution. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with a child whose entire family and community will benefit from your tangible love and support through basics we take for granted — like nutritious food, clean water, medical care, education, safe shelter, and spiritual nurture.

Did you know that you have a choice of making a monthly sponsorship donation, or donating the full annual amount in one easy transaction? As the new year approaches, it’s a quick and rewarding way to earn a significant tax-deductible donation that also makes a significant impact in the life of a child.

How does it work?

Once you’ve selected a special child to sponsor, based on country, gender, age, or birthday, just change the amount of your sponsorship donation on the “my basket” page to be “per year.” Then, your contribution will change from $35 — the amount of a monthly sponsorship donation — to $420 for the year.

It’s that simple. And you’re still helping to bring sustainable transformation to a child, family, and community for just over a dollar per day!

Don’t forget the deadline: before midnight Eastern/9 p.m. Pacific on December 31, 2013.

One transaction, one tax credit — and an entire year of getting to know a child who will experience hope and stability from your love, prayers, and support. What better way to start off 2014?

Sponsor a child for 2014. Make sure to do so before midnight Eastern/9 p.m. Pacific time on New Year’s Eve, and select the “per year” donation option to receive the maximum credit on this year’s taxes!
