So you have heard that Compassion Sunday is coming up, but for whatever reason, you are just not able to schedule a Compassion Sunday at your church.
You still have the opportunity to change the story for children living in extreme poverty by creating your own My Compassion Sunday page! By creating your own My Compassion Sunday page, you tell your Compassion story and share your page with your family and friends. Share your page on your blog, in an e-mail, on Facebook, Twiiter, Pinterest, etc. Share it with all of your social media contacts.
Why would I want to do this? Because by changing the story for one child living in extreme poverty, you may be making an eternal difference in the lives of more than just this one child. We may never know how many lives are changed when just one child is sponsored through Compassion. Their family, their community, their friends.
Not convinced that child sponsorship through Compassion is effective?
“. . . that children who participated in Compassion’s holistic child development through sponsorship program stayed in school longer, were more likely to have salaried or white-collar employment and were more likely to be leaders in their communities and churches than their peers who did not participate in the program.”
