Don’t you wish our political candidates could prove their success with testimonials and financial reports? Don’t you wish someone would run for office who could receive integrity ratings of 4 out of 4 stars? Compassion International is on several of Charity Navigator’s top 10 lists, including “Ten of the Best Charities Everyone’s Heard of.” Charity Navigator gives Compassion 4 stars for their Financial practices and a score of 100% for Accountability and Transparency. Click here for their full report.

That transparency isn’t just for rating organizations to see. Click here if you’d like to see Compassion’s online report.

I work in the financial industry. I was taught financial wisdom by a man who spent part of his childhood in a 3-walled lean-to with one pair of socks, who grew up to buy houses for his two sons and sister-in-law and left a legacy to his grandchildren. I believe in seeking and walking in wisdom. So check out Compassion International for yourself, and then sit back and enjoy a video made by an adult who grew up in the Compassion project.

I am participating in Compassion International’s “Release 3” project, and I am praying that the 6 children whose packets I have on my desk today will be sponsored by someone who reads my blogs this month. John Michael, Mathias, Deysi, Bryan, Erich and Mitiku need your friendship and $38 per month, to make it out of extreme, tummy-growling poverty and into adulthood with skills and opportunities instead of wishes. Let me know which child you’d like to sponsor, and I’ll send you the information. Share this with your friends, too.

In case you wonder, I will never take your money or your credit info. I will send you to the Compassion site and provide you with sign-up information for these children. I get nothing but the joy of knowing that I helped a few more children by spreading the word.
