Those of you who have been visiting me here for a while now may know that my family sponsors children through Compassion International, and that I’m a Compassion Blogger. (Some of you right now might be asking what Compassion actually is. It’s a Christian child sponsorship organization– a really beautiful, trustworthy organization.)
As a Compassion Blogger, I write about my Compassion kids sometimes and what sponsorship has meant to me and to my family. I posted a little background about our experiences with child sponsorship here. My heart is always full when I think about the children we sponsor through Compassion. They are so vulnerable and so grateful for what we’re doing for them. It’s such a small sacrifice for us, really, but to them, it’s huge.
My husband and I would love to become more active Compassion volunteers at some point, but for now, sponsorship (and sharing about sponsorship on my blog) has become our simple way of helping. What an incredible opportunity it is to speak up for children in poverty and have it go out across the blogsphere. I’m in awe of the power each of us has to share something so important with so many people. Some of my readers have become sponsors as a result of reading about Compassion at my blog, and that is JOY.
Today, I want to share the new Compassion Bloggers website with you. They’ve changed it a bit, and made it more user friendly. http://compassionbloggers.com/ You can see a list of the Compassion bloggers there, and you can experience Compassion’s ministry in Tanzania and other countries, through the words photos, and videos from a group of Compassion bloggers who traveled there. You can also pick up a banner or widget, if you’d like to share Compassion at your blog.
I love how eclectic the Compassion Bloggers list is–moms, writers, students, photographers, etc., etc., etc. Anyone who has a blog and would love to speak up for children in poverty can become a Compassion Blogger. (Maybe you? If you’re interested, you can sign up at the Compassion Bloggers site.)
I hope you’ll have a look at the new Compassion Bloggers site. And feel free to ask me questions about our Compassion kids, anytime.
Have a great week!
