Have some difficult people on your Christmas shopping list? You could get them a gift that has a shelf life…or you could give them a gift that lasts forever!
Let’s talk about how the next 20 days are going to be different than normal for each of us. Let’s talk about the joys, rewards, effort and difficulty involved with giving. And let’s raise $20,000 for children in need this Christmas.
I wasn’t looking for another child to sponsor. But then I saw two things next to her picture on the website: a red heart and a red ribbon.
Josiane, from Rwanda, had been waiting for a sponsor for over six months.
The red ribbon showed that Josiane lived in an AIDS-affected area.
Online, as I added Josiane’s…
Let’s paint a complete picture of giving this holiday season and see what we come up with. Let’s see if what we uncover helps connect us more closely to Jesus and helps make giving a part of our everyday lives.

September is Blog Month at Compassion. And what that means is prizes, giveaways, blogging assignments and more children sponsored via the Internet than any previous September in our history.

We’re in the midst of a campaign to takeover the Water.org Twitter account. Water.org’s 432,000 Twitter followers represent a whole new audience for us. An audience that may not know what we do, why we do it or who we do it for. This is what we want to tell them.
We want to end extreme poverty in our lifetime. And 58: is about all of the other children that we can’t sponsor, but want to.
Please vote for us to takeover the Water.org Twitter account and encourage others to vote for us as well.
It’s time for you to take the stage. Your perspective is valuable. We want to learn from you. And we want to be challenged by you.

Let’s raise the money to send Emilda to Greece.
Based on your votes, the most popular charity will receive $50,000 and the five runners-up will receive $10,000 each.
In the true spirit of Christmas, please remember that the wise men came and gave gifts to Him and not to each other. Our own personal fasts might be the best gifts that we could ever provide to God — the giving of ourselves through a focused time of prayer and devotion to Him.
At Compassion, World AIDS Day is a day of gratitude for caring friends like you who have so generously given to ease the suffering, in Jesus’ name, of the AIDS-affected children and families we serve together.
