About Compassion

Hi! It’s Mara here with a post about the program Compassion International. Enjoy the post!

My Personal Compassion Experience

My family and I sponsor a 9 year old girl from Brazil named Eliane and a 16 year old girl from Kenya named Doris. We have only received 3 letters (as of April 2017) from Kananu because they take a long time to send. For example, we recently got a letter from her that was originally sent in December of 2016. We receive letters from Eliane more quickly because she lives closer by. Nonetheless, it is always very exciting to receive a letter from your sponsored child.

About Compassion International

This is Compassion’s mission statement

It’s a mission about love. We love God, and we demonstrate our love and live out our faith by extending care to others.
We offer our programs to the poorest of the poor, to the children in greatest need, without ulterior motive. We devote ourselves to helping children of all faiths, cultures, backgrounds and race — without imposing any religious obligation or conversion requirement upon them.
We simply aspire to be like our Savior, Jesus Christ, in who we are and what we do.

Compassion’s mission statement is very inspiring and definitely wants to make you help out the great cause.

How to Help Compassion

Next I was list 6 ways you can help this amazing organization.

  1. You can donate money to the following categories Where Most Needed, Disaster Relief, Highly Vulnerable Children, Unsponsored Children, Water Treatment Projects, and Medical Assistance.
  2. You can fundraise money by doing activities such as bake sales, talent shows, lemonade stands, etc. Then later donate it to Compassion.
  3. You can volunteer at Compassion Partnered Events, at the Compassion Headquarters, and in a leadership role.
  4. Pray for unsponsored families and children or for family in dangerous areas.
  5. If you sponsor a child try to make sure to write them often, children love to receive your letters.
  6. If you sponsor a child you can visit them in there country.

I hope you will try one of these activities to support Compassion!

Compassion

Hi everyone! It’s Mara here and today I have a very, very special post. I hope you enjoy it!

So, on Friday night I went to a concert with my family. At the concert we saw The Afters, Unspoken, Chris August, and Among the Thirsty. After Unspoken, one of the members talked to us about an organization called Compassion International. Compassion helps children in poverty in different countries around the world. Compassion takes pictures of the child then puts them on their website. There people, can choose to sponsor a child. Then you can send letters to the children whenever you like, you can even go visit them!

My family talked about it yesterday and today and then this afternoon we decided to sponsor a child. I got to choose as well. I choose a 7 year old girl named Eliane [Elle-e-on-a] who lives in Brazil. Eliane has 4 siblings, and she loves to run and play with dolls. I’m very excited to start sending letters to her!
