Brett and I have been talking for a few days about sponsoring a child through Compassion International. Today, I read this post. It was the push I needed to actually look into the idea. I am not telling you this to get recognition. Rather, to let you know that you can sponsor a child for $32/month. I was surprised that it was not that expensive to sponsor a child.
You can pick the child you want to sponsor. We narrowed down the search (to AIDS infected kids in Africa…because that is a passion we have…who have been on a waiting list the longest) and let Caleb pick. Cool enough, it was one of the kids Brett took notice to, as well.
Looking through the pictures will move you to tears. The kids are so precious.
The reason I am telling you this is because like I said, I did not realize that the monthly donation was not super expensive. I know not everyone is called to give to Compassion International, so please do not feel guilt/pressure.
