One Meal, One Day

It’s been rather quiet around here lately, hasn’t it?  Actually my life has been anything buy quiet.  My trip to Tanzania is 5 months away and life’s pace has been a bit overwhelming.  I’m ready to return to this poor little neglected blog, and I wanted to return with something important.

My trip to Tanzania is a result of my sponsorship of a child through Compassion.  But did you know that Compassion is much more than just child sponsorship?  Child sponsorship is a key component, but Compassion provides much more in their holistic approach to battling poverty.  Compassion provides prenatal care to mothers and care to infants and toddlers through their Child Survival Program.  They also help to develop the next generation’s leaders through the Leadership Development Program.  Compassion battles disease through the Bite Back malaria prevention program and Water of Life initiative.

Compassion is also on the front line battling hunger.  Did you know that more than 6 million children die of malnutrition every year?  In some places around the world, the situation is so dire, even children registered in Compassion programs require extraordinary food interventions. They need major, superhero-sized help. And that’s where you come in.

I am participating in a program called One Meal, One Day.  On November 6th I will be skipping a meal and using that money to provide much needed nutrition to a child who desperately needs it.  I want you to join me!  Will you consider skipping just one meal to make a difference?  You donation can be made by following this link:

$5 will get you lunch…..or almost get you lunch.  Five dollars does not sound like much.  What would happen if you gave lunch money to make a difference?  Now what would happen if we all would choose to join together?  Five, ten, one hundred, one thousand?  It’s time to use social media for good!  Feel free to share this page within your circle of influence.  Let’s make a difference!
