Hi, Diane. Thanks for writing. I also love Operation Christmas Child. My sons and Ihave done boxes together for several years now. Thats a good idea to invite your families to participate. Ill have to think about that.

Thanks for letting us in on this part of your life. I agree with you in sharing this type of info. I too have a sponser child. He comes from the Philippines. I post a picture of him where my students can see, which sparks interesting conversations at times.
I also take part in a project this time of the year. It's with Samaritans Purse: Operation Christmas Child. We collect all sorts of items for underpriviledged children that can fit in a shoe box. I was a bit hesitant the first year bringing up this type of project, unsure of the response from parents, only to be extremely surprised by their generosity. They loved the idea. Every year we create more and more boxes. I even have previous parents contacting me to see if they can contribute again. It's wonderful!!

I am overjoyed to see so many blog posts coming up on my Google Alerts about Compassion! Thank you for spreading the word and be sure to stop by my blog for sponsorship ideas as well as letter-writing inspiration!

Its different how you would do it with Typepad and Blogger. If you are talking Add a Gadget that would be Blogger and, yes, you would do Add aGadget, and then I think there is a choice of adding HTML. Then youll get a box where you can paste the code. I THINK. I havent done it on Blogger for a while. Speaking of that, Ishould go add it on my Bloggerblog too. Thanks for knocking me upside the head so I would think of that!

I've copied the html from their site but I'm not able to add it to my blog. Did you use the add gadget function?

I'm going to add it to my blog. We've been sponsoring a child from the Philippines and it's amazing what $38 can buy you there! I feel bad that I have not kept up with the letter writing but this is one of the must to-do's now on my list! Thanks for the reminder!

Oh, I hate public speaking. It's great that someone else loves it! :)

Thank you for posting this. It is truly a reminder of how much we need to push ourselves to continually touch others lives, through Jesus' lasting love. Even though we may be going through what seems to be the roughest time of our life, it is nothing in comparison. Thank you.

May He bless you and your message this morning as you share about Compassion. That ministry is near and dear to us as well. Every work of art we receive from our Compassion child in Bolivia brings smiles. And you're right. You don't miss the $38!
