So, #itsaboutgiving is coming to a close.
As of Monday, Compassion has raised $532 through the Christmas Gift Catalog for children in poverty.
That's $532 out of a $20,000 goal.
But it's still possible.
There are more than 2,000 Compassion Bloggers.
That means that,
If each one posts,
And if readers respond . . .
- If ten readers give $10, we will reach our goal.
- If five readers give $5, we will reach our goal.
- If two readers give $50, we will reach our goal.
- OR, if one reader gives $100, we will reach our goal.
$10 could provide garden seeds for a family in Africa.
$20 could provide a Christmas gift for a mother and her baby.
$30 could give children access to safe and sanitary bathrooms.
$40 could care for a child who is waiting for a sponsor.
$40 could also treat potentially deadly illnesses.
$50 could provide emergency shelter for a child and family.
$50 could also provide medical care for a child who has been injured.
$100 could protect twenty-five children from parasites.
And there are so many more gifts to choose from!
Please, consider giving,
Even just a little?
You can visit Compassion's Christmas catalog here.
You can change a child's life.
It only takes a few minutes.
It only takes a few dollars.
It only takes a heart that's received so much
To break at the need around it
And allow the grace of receiving to spill over into the joy of giving.
It only takes you.
