You can.

Compassion International has launched a new campaign titled You Can in an effort to not only educate people about the issue of poverty around the world, but to empower them to become advocates on behalf of those suffering.

The campaign features a series of :30 spots that I feel really demonstrate some of the key issues impoverished children are facing around the world in tangible and powerful ways. The video above is one of those spots, but the others may have more impact and are worth the investment of time to wach them.

Our family has been sponsoring children through Compassion International for about a decade. It’s one small way we’ve been able to help relieve the suffering brought on by extreme poverty around the globe – one child at a time. We have tremendous respect for the organization and enjoy the personal relationships we’ve formed with the children we’ve sponsored over the years. We hope and pray that you’ll consider doing the same.
