If you’ve been reading my blog for any time at all, you may have noticed that I occasionally write about Compassion International. For those of you who visit my actual site (versus reading in Google Reader or on your phone), you can see I have a big Compassion banner in my sidebar, too.
Why do I do this?
I share about Compassion because while I’ve never been on a mission trip with the organization, I am a Compassion blogger. And I am a Compassion blogger because . . .
. . . I believe in the work Compassion does to release children from poverty.
. . . I want to support my friends and fellow bloggers who travel around the world with Compassion.
. . . once my eyes were opened, I couldn’t NOT do something.
. . . writing about Compassion, sharing it with you IS doing something.
Another thing that makes being a Compassion blogger a rewarding experience (though I’d do it even without this!) is the support I receive from Compassion as part of the team. Regular e-mails with news and ideas for writing topics make blogging for Compassion easy. And now the new-and-improved Compassion Bloggers website makes it even easier.
If you’ve ever thought about becoming an “official” blogger for Compassion, I say do it now! Head over to CompassionBloggers.com, where you can sign up, mark your calendar for the next Compassion blogger trip, read about past blogger trips, and find banners to share on all your social media sites. Oh – and if you don’t already, you can sign up today to sponsor a child!
