Not much time left to help out.

ChildFund International just rebranded from the Christian Children’s Fund last week as an effort to demonstrate a singular commitment to children’s welfare today and tomorrow (image: Faith Smiling by ChildFund, NZ). Along with the new brand are new Twitter (@childfund), Facebook, blogging and YouTube efforts.

To celebrate, ChildFund International is giving gifts of agricultural love and hope
from the organization’s gift catalog for every 200 Twitter followers @childfund receives. These efforts will directly benefit children in Gambia, Zambia, Kenya and Ethiopia. There is no cap on on followers, and the offer will continue through July 27.

Each country has different needs so the gifts vary:

Chickens for a school in the Gambia
A goat for a family farm in
Mango trees in Kenya
Vegetable seeds in Ethiopia

As part of the effort, ChildFund International is sending Flip cameras to program directorate offices in each of the four countries to report back. They will share the recipients’ stories and photos with the social web. ChildFund wants to show folks how their efforts and these items benefit children and their communities. It is also a commitment not to simply promote, but to continue an accountable dialog with the social web.

So tell your friends. By simply following @childfund we can all make a difference in a child’s life.

ChildFund enlisted our help with this effort. It’s an honor to work with them to help bring their new brand to life on the social web, and work to directly benefit children in these four countries. The organization has served children since 1938 and helps 15.2 million children and family members in 31 countries.
