The BEST Gift!

If you're looking for a gift that is inexpensive and wonderful for the whole family -may I suggest one? It costs less than cable TV,a Large pizza,or a movie night out
($32) yet can SAVE a child in distress...Compassion International! For only $32 your family can give life(food,medical,spiritual) substance to a boy or girl who is desperately hungry and hurting. My kids love knowing they have "other brothers" who we help every month. I love getting their little hand written letters and sending them postcards and letters. I wish I would have started years ago...instead of "picking a boy or girl" I asked to sponsor whoever's been on the waiting list longest...and I got all boys. Breaks my heart-(future men,fathers,husbands) who need food and medical etc...The BEST gift I think-to help someone and forgo one of the many "luxury's" I have here in the US,all for a little innocent child. Humm, just what Christmas was all about.
