It’s been a while, and it’s not Wednesday, but you know what…if there were ever a need for people to learn about WORTHY CAUSES, to learn how to MAKE A DIFFERENCE it’s now! I’m going to start with Compassion International, if that’s not a cause you can get behind…there is something wrong, but Wednesday I am going to share an organization that will probably scare/piss off some people, and I don’t care…then don’t continue reading that one! THIS ONE IS FOR EVERYONE! I may have already covered Compassion but I feel VERY STRONGLY about it, so too bad. The average person needs to hear something at least 7 times before they do anything with that information!
Imagine you wake up every day without electricity. Perhaps you’ve NEVER had electricity in your entire life. We take the flick of a switch, our refrigerator, the flush of a toilet for granted countless times each day. Imagine you don’t have access to clean drinking water. You boil your water before you drink it, or you drink in fear. Imagine you have no breakfast, no lunch, no dinner! We are GLUTTONS in America! Imagine you have no chance for education. Imagine you are surrounded by disease and death, and healthcare is just not something you are fortunate enough to have access to. Imagine child slavery, abuse, and worse. NOW, IMAGINE BEING THE PERSON WHO HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE THAT REALITY!
Compassion International! Compassion is a wonderful organization that provides basic needs to children in poverty. The organization is WORLDWIDE! It pairs ministry with providing other basic necessities to releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult.
Compassion International started in 1952 with 32 orphaned children in South Korea and an American evangelist Rev. Everett Swanson, wanting to help. It has grown into a well respected organization helping countless children worldwide. I love this statement from their website, “Compassion is global, reflecting the beautiful diversity of God’s kingdom.”
