If you know me - you know I love what Compassion is doing. I have been on two trips with Compassion and I have seen them in action so I feel strongly that what they are doing is awesome and that your money is REALLY being used wisely and making a HUGE difference.
I love the Operation Christian Child project. This is one I haven't personally been involved with because our church does something different that I work with but my mom is very involved with this and I know how passionately she feels about it.
Locally here in Arkansas - we support the Arkansas Children's Home. This is a home where kids from bad homes can come and live and they have house parents who take them in and love them and become a family to them. I think most states probably have something similar. My dad was on the board of trustees for a while and I love what they are doing. I try to give to them instead of Mother's day, father's day, birthdays or Christmas gifts in honor of family members. I wish all kids could grow up in loving homes but since they can't - I want to help in a small way so they can.
