BENEFITING: Compassion International, Inc.
Hi family & friends! We know how much you guys love Jacob and we are blessed to have you all in his life. God has really been so good to us. Jacob is so blessed to have all that he has and for his birthday, he really does not need more clothes or toys or stickers or cookies (as much as he does like them)! Instead, would you consider donating to Compassion to help children who really are in need? Compassion is a non-profit organization that helps children in poverty and shares with them the love of Jesus! Kenny and I started sponsoring a child through Compassion shortly after we were married in 2006. In the most recent letter from our sponsored child in Kenya (that's him in the last pic), he wrote "it is very dry and there is no water at home." Reading that really just broke my heart and brought me to tears. And yet, there are STILL so many other children like him who have no access to clean water, food or quality education - all the things we take for granted here in America. So this year, in lieu of birthday gifts for Jacob, would you consider donating to Compassion through this fundraiser we've set up? 100% of the funds raised will be given to Compassion as a one time donation for unsponsored children (http://www.compassion.com/donate.htm) or if God is calling you to, would you consider sponsoring a child for $38/month?
