Share Sponsorship, See a Show
What do an American Idol winner, a GRAMMY-nominated husband-and-wife country music duo, a music festival, a Christian rock band and a Beatles cover band have in common?The answer is ChildFund’s LIVE! concert series, where artists highlight child sponsorship during their performances. During intermission in many venues, volunteers help us spread the word further by sharing their experiences of sponsoring a child and helping sign up more sponsors.
It started in December 2011, with American Idol sensation David Archuleta, on his My Kind of Christmas tour. We knew the three-week tour would be a magical experience … but we didn’t expect the magic to continue in quite the way it has.
