Compassion International is a fantastic organization. They have a program where you can sponsor a child and support that child and his/her community in places like Uganda, Africa. To highlight the need, several bloggers were invited to attend a trip to Uganda. This diverse group of bloggers includes pastors, artists, leaders moms.
I happen to know a few of these bloggers personally and am excited to point you to their blogs as they write about this experience. My family sponsors two kids with another organization, so I believe in this process. I want you, my readers, to seriously consider how you and your family can make a tangible difference in poverty, AIDS and education in the life of a child on the other side of the world.
I first met Randy Elrod (Ethos) seven years ago at cre:ate conference and think tank in Franklin, Tennessee. Besides getting me into blogging, Randy has inspired me to be the dreamer I need to be. What an inspiration. He and Carlos (Ragamuffinsoul), and Heather (Whittaker Woman) I have met met personally through cre:ate conference and others like Anne and Shaun are bloggers I admire and follow. Here is a link to full list of bloggers.
