If you missed my initial 'Blessing Others' post you can read about it here.

For August 10% of all sales (or minimum $100) will go to Compassion.
We have supported Compassion Australia for a few years now via sponsor children. We try and write to them on a regular basis and we chose a sponsor child for Nicholas who has the same birth date as him so that he can write to him and have similar things in common to share. It is a great way for us to teach our son that his life is blessed and that there are so many others in the world who aren't so fortunate.
Here is some information on Compassion from their website:
Compassion is an international Christian child development and child advocacy ministry committed to working in partnership with local churches around the world to foster the spiritual, economic, social, physical and emotional development of children living in extreme poverty in over 26 developing countries.
- Child Survival Program
- Child Sponsorship Program
- Leadership Development Program
- Complementary Interventions
Compassion’s Holistic Child Development Model reflects our long-term commitment to the life of each individual child. Our programs strive to meet not only a child’s physical needs, but also their spiritual, economic, social and emotional needs as well. Our holistic approach extends to all areas of our programs, giving children the resources to survive, thrive and learn, the opportunity to hear the Gospel, and the love, care and attention they need to grow into fulfilled and independent adults.
