Recently here in the United States, we celebrated Thanksgiving.
Then it was Black Friday - a day dedicated to kicking off the holiday shopping with deep discounts and deals offered at almost every store.
Then it was Cyber Monday - the day you can find great deals on the internet.
And now....now it's Giving Tuesday.
What is Giving Tuesday? It's a global day dedicated to giving back. It falls on the Tuesday after the American Thanksgiving in response to the massive amounts of consumerism that follows this holiday.
Compassion is attempting to raise enough funds to fully fund a Child Survival Program in Gujarat, India ALL IN ONE DAY....#GivingTuesday!
Friends, I've seen Compassion's Child Survival Program in action in Peru and I can tell you it's making a huge difference in the lives of those who participate. I've also sent monthly support to a CSP in India for many years and I love partnering with Compassion in this way. It's different in that you are not individually linked to a participant, but the small monthly donation is giving moms and babies a chance to survive those first years of life.
It is such a practical and effective part of Compassion's ministry to children.
Would you join me in supporting this endeavor? I sure hope you haven't spent all your money on all the great deals and you can make a donation NOW.
Compassion released a post called Why Giving Tuesday Matters on their blog last week and you can read it HERE.
You can also read more about this endeavor and donate at the website found HERE.
