Awhile ago, I heard about an organization, “Releasing children from poverty compassion-sponsor-a-child_148x571COMPASSION in Jesus’ name.” I was searching for a reputable organization that cared for poverty stricken children’s needs. When I perused the innumerable list of children, I found myself overwhelmed.  How can anyone pass up these precious children & not help them.  But I preceeded cautiously & choose one child to sponsor.  It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life!  I have heard from the child & written many letters which included many little treasures in them.  It doesn’t take much to make an impoverished child happy.  A pack of stickers, pictures, coloring pages was one of my choices.  I am limited, as objects must be thin, I suppose because of the postage.  Translations are made & letters exchanged.  I even had my grandchildren (his age) write to him & add their little pictures.  Think about it! For a little over one dollar a day, you can make a difference in a child’s life.  It was said by- Arnold Schopenhauer: Compassion is the basis of morality. OR Martin Lowenthal: Compassion is a foundation for sharing our aliveness and building a more humane world.  You will find the direct connection to the COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL on my links to the right.
