Compassion International

Compassion International is an organization that works around the world to fight poverty, you may have heard of it last year when they organized a group of media people and bloggers to go to Uganda and write about the relief efforts they saw, one of whom was Shannon Lowe from Rocks in My Dryer who gave us wonderful stories of her time in Africa.

Well they’re doing it again and I wanted to mention that you can look forward to more stories as Compassion International takes another group of writers to the Dominican Republic November 2-7, 2008 to record what’s happening there. I was asked to attend but through scheduling conflicts I had to decline so the least I can do is to put you wise as to what you can expect from the other bloggers attending. Who knows, maybe I can get lucky next year and get another invitation to join them then?

The Pioneer Woman, 5 Minutes for Mom, Owlhaven and Big Mama are a few of the quality blogs that will be represented this time around which I’d encourage you to read as they report on their unique assignment. You might even consider donating to Compassion International’s efforts–there are so many people in so many organizations around the world doing their part to help others it’s a pleasure to be able to give them a little help in their efforts.
