“Maybe in the future, we could get partners to help get children sponsored, but as of right now the goal is for every member to talk to a kid for 15 minutes a day and then once we get more people maybe two kids a day for 15 minutes and everybody could take 30 minutes out of their day we could impact a bunch of people,” said Facebook group creator Caleb Click.
