free tee shirt Welcome to your latest chance to win a free Compassion tee shirt. This week our tee party headliner is this fashionable gem, the Compassion Fade Tee.

Visit the Compassion store to see the tee work its fade magic altogether in one image. And while there, it’d be okay if you liked it so much that you bought one.

But it’s also okay if you just leave a comment letting us know you came to our tee party. That’ll enter you into our drawing for the free tee shirt. We’ll announce the winner next Monday, just like this:

Derek Chalfant is not a fan of fish, but he is the winner of last week’s free tee shirt giveaway. Congratulations Derek.

    I check out the blog every day! Have ever since I thought about sponsoring through Compassion. It was a great source of information when I was trying to learn what Compassion was about and a great way to learn more about what’s going on in the field now as a sponsor.

    This shirt looks super comfy. I came to the tee party because I subscribe to this blog through an RSS feed.

    Also, I have a little piece of my heart in Nicaragua!

    I just received the “Opposite” t-shirt that I ordered in the mail on Friday and I hope it will create curiosity about Compassion International whenever I wear it.

    I love the tee it is really cute. I must say I love compassion and their work. I started sponsoring a girl from Peru a little more than a year ago in Feb of 2009 at the age of 18.Even though I am a college student and don’t have that much my money God has blessed me to be able to continue to be a sponsor. I love writing letters and receiving letters it is awesome to see how Compassion is impacting the lives of these kids. Thank you so much for all you do. God bless you all!!

    I chose to sponsor a child through Compassion as a Christmas gift for my husband. It is by far one of the best gifts anyone can give. We love Compassion and what it stands for. What a great idea this “tee party” is (and a very adorable shirt as well)!

    I go on your website whenever I can get internet. I really want to sponsor some kids, but my family doesn’t have a lot of extra money. My youth pastor won’t go for it, but in my Public Speaking class I gave a speech about Compassion, and now we have a group at school trying to get enough people to sponsor several kids! So we’ll see how that turns out.

    Compassion sees the pattern God sees: the chaos of our sinful world clears to reveal the pattern of a child’s life loved infinitely by God!

    Proverbs 16:33 (Amplified Bible)

    33The lot is cast into the lap, but the decision is wholly of the Lord [even the events that seem accidental are really ordered by Him].

    God I thank you that you have allowed me to visit Bushiri this July 17-27, 2010 in Tanzania, Lord wouldn’t it be great if the person who won the t-shirt from this blog was able to wear it to Tanzania and take a picture and have a video wearing the t-shirt doing a bicycle kick with the new soccer ball I hope to give to Bushiri? Even if I don’t win Lord I thank you for my job which would enable me to buy the t-shirt! Amen.

    I think the tea shirt contest is great, what a way to promote Compassion. If I could I would buy one of each shirt and wear them all the time. I wore one today when I went to a meeting about Missions and received lots of comments. It says on front: “Poverty has a Sol(you)tion”, and on the back: Compassion logo with the word “(You)”. I bought this two years ago when I visited Compassion in Colorado Springs. I have been a sponsor for 4 years and an advocate for 3 1/2 years. I now sponsor 8 children and it is a wonderful blessing to me.

    I’m a new sponsor with Compassion. My granddaughter and I sponsor a little girl in Indonesia and look forward to developing a relationship with her over time.

    First of all I would like to say that Compassion is an incredible way to help many children and their families across the globe. We have been a sponsor for almost 10 years now and It has been a huge blessing to our family knowing we can make a difference in someone’s life. Secondly, the tee shirt is really a great way to promote compassion and it would draw others to ask more about compassion. We always could use more sponsors. Have an incredible day and God Bless!♥

    I first heard of Compassion recently at church. I know I must live under a rock or something LOL but when I heard the man speaking of these children in Africa and how much passion he had for this cause, I immediately looked you up on FaceBook and joined. My heart goes out to those children. The work Compassion does is life changing not just for the children, but for those who sponsor them coz how could it not? It would be a privelidge to wear this shirt if i won it as it would get the word out there as it would be a focal point for conversation 😀 Im so glad I stopped by to join your tee party 😀

    I only started sponsoring about half a year ago, but my Mom has been sponsoring for over 7 years. Maybe if I get a “tee party” shirt God will move management to allow a casual day on Fridays so I can wear it to work… *hint hint*

    Somehow I missed the whole “tee party” bit [I’m a little behind on my blog reading!] but this is a lovely t-shirt!

    I have been following the Compassion Bloggers since MckMama’s trip to Kenya. My husband and I are planning to sponsor 1 (or more) children once he finds employment. He has been unemployed for 6 months and I also lost my full time job over a year ago; I have been blessed with a part time job; once we get back on our feet we can’t wait to sponsor. But in the meantime you and your ministry to children are in our prayers.

    My husband and I just started sponsoring a boy from Guatemala. I am so excited about this and just love what Compassion has done for these children. I pray that we can sponsor more in the future and give everything we can to help others who are in need to show them the Love of Jesus Christ.

    I love wearing shirts that support great organizations like Compassion. They have given me the opportunity to have many convo’s about the ministries and organizations I’m passionate about. Our Compassion children have always touched our family, and we love telling others about them! We recently purchased t-shirts from your website, and my kids loved wearing & promoting their “Bite Back” shirts from Compassion!! Thanks!

    I just started sponsoring a child last week! My 5 year old son is calling him “his brother”. So sweet.

    Although we announced the winner of this shirt in another blog post, I never closed the loop here. My apologies.

    Kiki Cherry was the winner of this shirt.

    I just became a new sponsor. I think that my 7 grand babies and I are going to be really blessed by sponsoring Jeniver Indri Emor, and sharing our lives with her. Thank you for this oppurtunity.
    God bless you all around the world.
