free-tee-shirt Week three of the Compassion Tee Party is here. And because yesterday was Mother’s Day, we’re ponying up a free Child Survival Program tee shirt – to celebrate moms and the children they care for.

Visit the Compassion store to discover the meaning of the Hindi phrase on the shirt, then leave a comment letting us know you’re also celebrating these courageous moms and caregivers. Your comment will enter you into our drawing for the free tee.

We’ll announce the winner next Monday, kind of like this:

Kiki Cherry is the winner of last week’s free tee shirt giveaway. Hoorah!

And Rachel Clark is the winner of Friday’s book giveaway. Yay!

Congratulations to both our winners.

    I love shirts like this that provide the opportunity to relay a message to people I would never even talk to. Even if it doesn’t spark a conversation it may cause someone to stop and think, or better yet to go do some research to find out more about what they see.

    This is a great way to get the message out there! Where can I buy one?

      Nichole,

      You can buy the shirt in the Compassion store. The link in the post, and in the previous sentence, takes you directly to the page for this shirt.

    this shirt is beautiful, in design and message. there are so many screen tees and very few that actually send out an important message. with all the tees with a message that people would/will read, i would definately want this one to be the one i wear.

    Awesome shirt. I’m big on tees, so I would love to win one of these.

    Ever since I first heard about the CSP, I’ve been looking for a way to get involved. This next year, our MOPS group will have a “Service” jar for moms to put their loose change (or dollars) in each month. This will first go to support (at least) one CSP sponsorship a month. Any leftover we’ll use for our other service projects (unless we get LOTS of money, then we’ll maybe sponsor two!). My ultimate dream is that someday some from our MOPS group will get to go meet the ladies at our sponsored CSP. Who better to support new moms than Mothers of Preschoolers?!

    At one of our worship services, we’re about to start collecting for a WorldVision shelter for a Haitian family, but after that we hope to do something similar with that congregation (i.e., change jar that will go towards at least one sponsorship each month). Not sure how we’ll work out the logistics, but we’ll figure it out! Those babies are TOTALLY worth it!

    I like this T-shirt even better than the others because now I am a partner with a CSP in India. This makes my third CSP that I partner with and I believe I am able to help more children and more mothers this way than by adding more children. I want to reach as many children as possible and this is the best way to do that. Of course I would like to win this but I know it is hard to pick a winner. I am already a winner just by being involved with Compassion.

    I love how Compassion’s CSP centers are protecting life. I share CSP any chance I get. What a fantastic program. I would wear this shirt proudly. What a great conversation starter.

    I am currently reading Wess Stafford’s “Too Small to Ignore” and in it he points out that we all remember where we were when 3000 people died in the tragic attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 but do we remember where we were when 30,000 children under the age of 5 died on September 12th and again on September 13th and every day since then. How does this go unnoticed? Why aren’t we outraged? I am so thankful for organizations like Compassion that are changing the world one child at a time! God bless you all!

    English: “survival” = Hindi: “protect life”.

    And that’s what CSP is doing, protecting the lives of the worlds most vulnerable citizens–vulnerable to disease, malnutrition, dehydration, and in some cases, “unwantedness” (particularly true of females in areas where the practice of a dowry is still in effect).

    Your President spoke at my Baccalaureate this past weekend at Asbury University. His message was amazing-as is the message of this shirt. I first heard about Compassion my freshman year, and final adopted my very own compassion child during a campaign this last semester. I love what this organization does and would love to further support it by wearing one of their shirts!

    Protect life. It makes me think of the proverb that says “he who closes his ears to the cries of the poor will cry himself and not be heard.”

    I pray for every mom who had to watch their child die prematurely, especially if the death was due to poverty… lack of food, clean water, healthcare or other resources. May God give them comfort.

    Protect Life…. Isn’t it that simple!

    Mother Teresa said “If a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what they needed.”

    There are so many simple ways to protect life, may we all learn this and take a step in the right direction.
