I scooped my little guy off the floor where he was crawling this morning and when I went to give him a kiss he tried to chomp my nose. This is how I know he is hungry. I went to the pantry and pulled out two jars of baby food and then stopped for a moment to think – what if we had no food?
What if I had to put my sweet little Nugget down because there was no food? I can’t even bear to think of it.
There are moms on this earth that face that reality every day. One of Compassion’s slogans is “The opposite of poverty isn’t wealth, the opposite of poverty is enough.” Enough. Just enough food to make it through the day, the week, the year. What if we faced that need every day the way so many do?
If you haven’t filled a shoe box or dropped off a toy at a local agency yet, or even if you have, I hope you’ll consider Compassion and the children of Compassion this Christmas. They have an online catalog for gift-giving that is super easy to navigate.
You can sit your child in your lap and have them help you pick out a gift online for beloved souls in places where the poverty is so great children die for lack of food, water, or medical treatment. You get to select a greeting card to send with your gift. Compassion makes the impossible possible for these needy families. And this Christmas you can make a difference in the lives of these families. All donations are tax deductible.
Here is the link to donate: Gifts for Compassion. I’m a little partial to the gift for mom and baby or the option to cover a baby’s medical treatments for a year. Have a look and see what touches your heart – or even the hearts of your children. Some of the best gifts in life don’t come in a box. 🙂 Thanks for considering Compassion.
