Sponsor tours usually cost from $2,000 to $4,000, plus airfare to the departure city.
- Is that the best use of your money?
- What is the benefit to your child — to children in poverty?
- Would it be better to use that money to:
- send a family gift
- sponsor another child
- donate to the Global Food Crisis fund?
When we published our firstpost, one of the questions we received was:
Is the benefit to the child and sponsor worth the cost of a visit to Uganda? I would love to visit my three sponsored girls, but I hesitate to spend a considerable amount of money for “my dream” when the money could be used to sponsor additional children or ministries. I think I would feel guilty. What are your thoughts? –Shelly Quigg
We thought it would be better to have a discussion on this, to hear more than one person’s opinion, rather than just include it as one question in an entirepost.
What’s your answer? How should Shelly spend her money?
