Get Involved

“In the present circumstances, no one can afford to assume that someone else will solve their problems. Every individual has a responsibility to help guide our GLOBAL FAMILY in the right direction. Good wishes are not sufficient; we must become actively engaged.” - Dalai Lama

Global FamilyThis is a campaign launched by the Touch A Life Foundation that seeks to unite our amazing supporters with children in need throughout the world, reminding us all that our families must stretch beyond our homes and backyards and extend into communities throughout the world.

The Global Family Initiative exists not only to unite our supporters with children across the globe but also to provide donors with alternative options for committing to monthly sponsorship programs. As a part of this program, you can choose what amount you’d like to donate to Touch A Life each month.

You will then become part of an exclusive group that receives updates about the children in our programs in West Africa and Southeast Asia. The communication you will receive will include the following:

  • Monthly online newsletters that feature a different child in our program. This way you will be connected to each of the children in our program and continue to expand your Global Family!
  • A handwritten letter from a child in Ghana at least once per year.
  • Four to six handwritten letters and photo updates from Touch A Life staff members per year.
  • A phone call from our co-founder, Pam Cope, once per year.

How to Get Started

There are two ways to join the Global Family:

  1. Sign up to become an Individual Child Sponsor for by committing to donate $150 per month. You will be paired up with a child in our program. We will mail you the child’s biography as well as information about how to communicate with your sponsored child.
  2. Sign up to become a Global Family Member. Choose any donation amount you’d like – no amount is too small to make a huge difference in the lives of the children in our programs. Download our Global Family materials to learn more about the program. Set up your recurring monthly donation and you’ll start receiving information about the children in our programs. 

Within 24 hours, we will respond to you personally and ensure that your monthly withdrawals have been set up properly. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are so grateful for your support!
