Best Charity To Donate To
This week at Holley's place we are talking about our favorite charities. And Compassion International is one of mine.
We started sponsoring our child Lawrence last year after hearing more about Compassion through a concert we had attended at our church. My daughter begged and begged, so we went online and prayerfully we looked through all of the faces and profiles and stopped on Lawrence.
He is the same age as Keeli and had been on the waiting list for a really long time; that day we decided it was time he waited no more he became our "adopted" child.
Through our donations, Lawrence gets clothes and supplies for school. The extra money we send goes straight to him and his family for their other needs.
Can you imagine not being able to afford to send your child to school? And buy basic necessities?
The testimonies on the website are powerful and if you have ever doubted the power that one life can make you won't after visiting Compassion's website.
We pray for Lawrence daily and hope that he is safe and getting what he needs. Through Compassion, he is getting the chance at a real life. To go to school and get an education to make something out of himself to better not only his life but his family's as well. Many of the kids that graduate end up coming home and helping the community. It's an endless cycle of paying it forward.
And I'm so proud to be a part of it.
Have you been by Compassion? Would you consider taking a look and prayerfully considering sponsoring a child?
God Bless you!
Linking with Holley and my dreamer friends.
