If that doesn't get your attention, then I don't know what will. :) I am blogging this week to try to get as many kids as possible sponsored through Compassion international. These kids have the hardest lives out of any child you will ever meet. Your sponsorship of just 38 dollars a month (roughly 1.27 a day) will provide not only 3 hot meals a week, biblical learning, a safe haven for some of the most at-risk kids, medical check ups, vocational training, plus much, much more, but most importantly, they are told that they matter. Poverty tells children "You were born with nothing, so nothing is what you will always be." And that isn't true. I hear it all the time from my sponsored kids and their parents "Thank you so much for caring for me/my son/my daughter" they pray for you, and they will share their prayer requests with you as well. And if that isn't enough to get your sponsor juices flowing, go to the Compassion International website and look at the child that needs you for yourself.
