Children Helping Children: Alexandra’s Story

For the past 3 years, Alexandra has been donating to the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF) through her birthday. She chose to give to CNCF every year because she is sponsoring a little girl, Thuy, who is her age. Through Twopresents, Alexandra was able to choose one gift she really wanted each year (a scooter, a Trip to Disney and American Doll Accessories) and donate the rest of her gift money to Thuy.

By sharing her birthday money, Alexandra has helped Thuy go to school. Alexandra’s parents feel that sharing her good fortune with someone in need is a great way for Alexandra to appreciate how lucky she is. Before deciding to sponsor a child through CNCF, Alexandra’s family sat down together to go through the various causes on the Twopresents website.  Alexandra was drawn to sponsoring a child through CNCF because she could help somebody the same age, who was not too far away from Hong Kong. From the beginning, Alexandra could relate to Thuy and receiving annual photos, cards and letters from Thuy only strengthened their connection.

In their latest letter from Thuy, Alexandra’s family got some wonderful news. After years of hard work as a bricklayer, Thuy’s father was able to master his skill and was promoted to become head supervisor with a base salary of USD 430 per month. He can now take care of his children and asked to transfer the sponsorship to other children in need. With the improvement in Thuy’s situation, Alexandra has decided to support another CNCF child who needs help. Read Thuy’s final thank you letter to Alexandra and her family as she moves on to a better future.

CNCF helps underprivileged children by providing them with access to a good education, a high standard of healthcare, and other social and employment opportunities. To find out more about their work and the Child Sponsorship Program visit www.cncf.org.hk
