And the Winners Are

It’s been awhile … a looong while … since we last talked about winning a free trip by finding sponsors for children in poverty. Here is what happened since then.

143 people ordered a total of 1,633 child packets, and more than 50 of you successfully found a sponsor for at least one child. Many of you were able to get numerous children sponsored.

In all, because of how you responded to our request for help, 215 children in poverty now have new sponsors, and several of you won a trip because of  your efforts.

Thank you very much!

The winners are:

  • Allegra Thowless
  • Mary Choi
  • Brittany Clarke
  • Brenden and Carlene Murray

    Congrats to the winners, and to everyone who participated–whether they personally found a sponsor for a child or not.

    Praise God for the new sponsors for the 215 children who are now being released from poverty in Jesus’ name! May God richly bless the lives of the children and their sponsors.

    Mary, your life will never be the same! Maybe you will tell us about your experience, here, after you have visited your child. In fact, Sir Chris, would you consider giving space to each of the winners to write about their experiences, after the fact?

      Great idea Vicki. It appears :-) that both Mary and Brittany read the blog. I will ask them.

    Sounds to me like we have a new batch of advocates brewing–Praise be to God!

    Yes, I will definitely blog about the trip. Here, on my blog, on Kimchi mamas (another blog I contribute to), everywhere. I love getting the word out about Compassion.
