I had this post written three weeks ago and I was all prepared to write about my novel "The Secret" and give you a little teaser, but I can't do it. There's something more important that I want to talk about for the letter S.
|My sponsored child, Noemi|
Sunday, April 22, 2012 is Compassion Sunday, which is put on by Compassion International. They have sponsored over a million children! You have the power to change the story of a child living in poverty. I know that a lot of us here are writers and we love stories. I love that I can change the story of a little girl so she has a better life. Compassion International gives food and clean water, medical care, educational opportunities, important life skills training, and a chance to hear about God's love.
The most important thing for me... Noemi. I love getting her letters and hearing how much I have helped her. She tells me that she loves me and I've never met her, but I love her too. Her story breaks my heart, but I am doing my best to give her a chance at a good life and I promise you that she deserves it. Literally, I am crying as I write this because she has changed my life so much and I'm so passionate about helping these children.
It's $38 a month. A little over a dollar a day and my gift is giving her life. It's tax-deductible if you are worried about that. I work as a coffee barista, barely making over minimum wage and I have the money to sponsor her. You can do it. :) I'll never regret making this choice.
Have a great day!
