American Idol Star David Archuleta Partners with ChildFund

By Virginia Sowers, ChildFund Community Manager

With the arrival of the holiday season, ChildFund is launching a new program to shine the spotlight on children who live in extreme poverty worldwide.

Working with various performing artists, our LIVE! concert series seeks to introduce new audiences to ChildFund’s work in 31 countries and the life-changing impact of child sponsorship.

To roll out the program, we’re teaming with American Idol star David Archuleta, whose “My Kind of Christmas Tour,” gets under way in New York on Dec. 1 and includes concert dates across the country.

At each venue, the platinum-selling singer will be telling fans about ChildFund’s mission. Current ChildFund sponsors will be on hand to share their own sponsorship experiences and assist with signing up new sponsors at the concert.

Partnering with ChildFund this holiday season is an exciting new opportunity, notes David. “I believe that every child has incredible potential. Through its sponsorship program, ChildFund ensures that children have access to education, clean water and health care. Working together, we can change childhoods. And that’s the first step toward creating a better world.”

Volunteers are still needed from New York to California. You’ll get to attend the concert for free, and rev up your holiday spirit by helping others learn more about becoming a child sponsor through ChildFund.
