Here's the Deal

If you're not familiar with Compassion, you need to be.
Our family has sponsored a Compassion child in Kenya for several years. We write to him, he writes back, it's a neat relationship and opportunity.
While I was at the SHIFT Conference this last week we actually got to hear first hand from a child who was in the Compassion program. It was incredible to hear his story, where he was before Compassion, where he was while with Compassion and where he is now.
The most amazing thing was he was sponsored by a 15-year old girl.
A 15-year-old girl decided she would rather spend $32 a month on a child living in poverty than to spend it on herself.
Now that's crazy love!

So what are you waiting for? And yes this is directed at all the 33oC girls out there!
Go over to Compassion and find a child.
You can pick one with your same birthday, the country you want, gender etc.

I can't think of a better use of $32.
Who needs coffee out every day or nails done, I'll even skip a date night. What about you, what can you give up for a child living in poverty?

And oh yeah on my sidebar under "My Blog List", The LM Proof and Without Wax are both on a blogging trip to India, check them out and read first hand the story on Compassion in India.

Peace, Love and tweet, tweet-
