Back in March we asked you a simple question:And boy howdy, did a conversation take off!
Now, we’d like to introduce you to OurCompassion.org — our new Web site to more easily connect you with people who sponsor children in the same country or child development center as your child.
Of course, if you want to connect with other people, you can do that, too. We’ll allow it.
OurCompassion isn’t just a U.S. project. At this time, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands are participating, but all of our partner countries will eventually be involved.
We’re building OurCompassion to help make your sponsorship experience more vibrant, dynamic and rewarding — to help take it beyond what it has been in the past.
Our development priorities for OurCompassion will revolve around delivering the functionality necessary to bridge the gap between you and your child — relationally, geographically, technologically, etc. We’re not trying to recreate Facebook, but we do want OurCompassion to communicate with the networks you’re in.
It’s going to take time for our vision to be fully realized; we are a nonprofit, after all. But for now we invite you to join OurCompassion and experience what we call “joined together thinking.”
You can also view the OurCompassion video, Joined Together, as well as all of our videos on YouTube.
Our commitment to you is to make OurCompassion what you want it to be. Do not hesitate to share your thoughts with us.
