Simple Compassion — Compassion International

A while back I talked about how our family sponsors 2 kids through World Vision.  I think giving back is a huge part of minimalist simple living.  I also wanted to highlight another organization that is very similar – Compassion International. (picture source)

Here is a video of what they do:

Here is the link.

Here is a bit from their site about what they do:

“In a world where more than a billion children live on less than U.S.$2 per day, connecting one child with one sponsor is the most strategic way to end child poverty.

Through monthly gifts, prayer and letter writing, sponsors invest in the lives of children living in extreme poverty. This relationship communicates, “You are an important little person!”

Children attend church-based child development centers where they receive life-changing opportunities that would otherwise be out of their reach. All Compassion-sponsored children have the opportunity to develop their God-given potential and be released from the poverty that has trapped their families for generations.

Sponsor a child today and help break the cycle of poverty! For just $38 a month, your sponsorship helps provide:

  • Ongoing Christian training
  • Educational opportunities
  • Treatment and training to maintain child health
  • Development of self-confidence and social skills
  • Key life skills and vocational programs” (Source)

It is Valentines Day today, a day all about love.  It is a great opportunity to show it to a child in need.  For the cost of one meal at a restaurant food and education can be provided to a child all month long.

Happy Valentines Day!

  1. Thank you for highlighting one of my favorite ministries. I’ve been a sponsor through Compassion since 1994 and have been so blessed by the kids we have sponsored over the years. As an advocate for children and specifically Compassion, I have a separate blog dedicated to this ministry called Compassion Family.

    Both my husband and I have had the great privilege of meeting some of our kids and seeing the work God is doing through Compassion in the field. It is truly a remarkable organization.

    • Awesome!
