Some helpful tips if you decide to adopt a family:

  • You are welcome to state your preference.  For example: a small family with 1 or 2 kids or a large family.  We will try to accommodate you.

  • We try to get all families assigned before Thanksgiving, so sponsors can take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

  • Most sponsors spend approximately $75-$100 per child, depending on age

  • You will receive the names, ages, genders and gift suggestions for the family
