Releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name is what Compassion is all about. One child at a time. That is how our family became involved with Compassion, with just one child.

As a family, we now sponsor four children, my children have both become advocates with me, all four of us work many events together, and I love the ability to use my blog and other social media platforms to share about the work Compassion is doing to change the story for so many children living in extreme poverty. My son and I were able to see firsthand how Compassion is working in January 2014 when we visited Felix, our sponsored child in Mexico.

Currently, I write a monthly blog post for Compassion's blog sharing ideas from Compassion's Pinterest boards to encourage sponsors to write to their sponsored child. Your letters really do make a difference in the lives of  these children! Click here to read this post on the Compassion blog which gives ten great reasons to write to your sponsored child. You can even log into your account and write a letter online!
