I personally have done this in my past. The child was an amazing little girl who love life and toys. Unfortunately, she passed away. It broke me and the other person who helped to sponsor her heart. She was just eight years old. I learned a lot from the experience. It wasn't because she didn't receive funds we were sending her. Her death was due to a health condition she suffered from which we where unaware of.

During our sponsorship we received many personal letters and pictures of her progress. It made us feel good inside knowing we were not just helping her but other kids in her community. It is a rewarding experience to sponsor a child. You feel like a foster parent giving hope and love to a child in need. It is a awesome thing to do.
