When I starting thinking about this series of posts about Compassion, I knew some letters would be a challenge to come up with an appropriate word for the letter. Take ‘I’ for instance…
International? Could work, but I just did a post on ‘Global’ which kind of means the same thing.
Invest? Sounds more like a financial term.
Integrity? Another one that could work.
Then, it hit me…Individual!
And why ‘individual’?
Each individual Compassion child at every center around the world has their own individual binder. Entries are made in these binders for the registered Compassion children in four key areas: Socio-emotional, physical, educational, and spiritual development.
Copies of birth certificates, immunization records, health check-ups, copies of letters from sponsors, receipts of purchases for financial gifts from sponsors, profession of faith certificates…these are just a few of the items in the binders for each individual child.
And best of all about the word ‘individual’?
When you sponsor a Compassion child, you are the only sponsor for that individual child!
If you are not a Compassion sponsor already, what is stopping you from becoming a sponsor today?
