I have posted about World Vision before but I just can’t help myself. I have posted a bunch about child sponsorship lately as well. But I had such a great experience …I have to talk about it again.
Last weekend I had the privilege of helping at the World Vision booth at a Big Daddy Weave concert. I have wanted to help before but never got the chance. It was so amazing! I wish I could sponsor hundreds of kids but I can’t right now. Instead I got to be part of a whole group of people choosing their kids and starting sponsorship. Right in front of me was the beginning of lives and communities being changed.
Is there anything better than that?
I wanted to share two different things with you.
First this awesome song by Big Daddy Weave:

“Why don’t you break my heart till it moves my hands and feet” — Big Daddy Weave (tweet this)
There are so many great organizations that do child sponsorship but if you aren’t sponsoring a child and would like to I would love to encourage you to sponsor today.
At the concert Big Daddy Weave gave away his most recent CD to new sponsors. I got one for helping with the booth but I would love to pass it on to one of you. (great music!)
If you sign up to sponsor a child after seeing this post send me an e-mail and I will send you the CD. I can send it to the first person who e-mails me. E-mail me and let me know you signed up and a bit about the kid your helping Feel free to send me any questions too. I have been sponsoring 2 kids for about 3 years now.
Together we can make the difference for one kid at a time – one community at a time.
Do you sponsor a child? I love hearing about it. Feel free to add any links to posts you have about your experience. (if you are reading RSS join us in the comments)
