In the midst of returning to school, studying for ACT's, reconnecting with friends, and getting back into the swing of things, September appeared! Out of nowhere, one day it was August, then the next... September! Even though the weather is still very, Very, HOT, I can't help but envision all the wonderful fall-like things September brings. Leaves changing colors, Friday night football games, cinnamon tea, and new experiences. With the beginning of Fall, there are many opportunities to try new activities and change things up--just as the season is changing.
A new experience for me this September is participating in Compassion International's blog month.
Compassion International is an organization that is very close to my heart! Compassion is a child sponsorship program that connects loving sponsors to kids in need of love in third-world countries. But it is so much more than donating a little money each month to a child whom you hardly know. As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to correspond with your child through letters and pictures (and I know from personal experience how FUN it is to write and receive letters from your kids). Another amazing thing about Compassion is they work on developing every area of a child's well- being: Physical, social, financial, emotional, and spiritual.
The goal of blog month is to get 3,108 children sponsored in the month of September. WOW! Imagine all the precious lives that can be changed this month...
So, since this is the month of September, the month of trying new things and change... why not start by changing the life of a child in poverty? It may just change your life too!
