Reblog: It’s Easier to Change a Life Than You Think

This first appeared on Compassion International’s Blog on April 11, 2016.

Eradicating child poverty across the globe – that sounds like a daunting task.

But what if I told you that, by using what you’re already doing in your everyday life, you can play a significant part in achieving that goal?

Others have already started to discover this through Act for Compassion, a new online platform that launched earlier this year with a focus on fundraising for the children of northeast Brazil. ActForCompassion.com exists to help you reduce the grand mission of releasing children from poverty to doing one simple thing – taking one act – that will forever change the lives of children in poverty.

When you use your voice for good, children in some of the world’s most poverty-stricken communities are connected with one of our loving local church partners. Through that relationship, they will have access to clean water, nutrition and health care, education, supportive personal relationships, spiritual development and so much more. With your help, they are introduced to a future filled with opportunity.

Here are just a few stories of how others have taken action and made a big difference in Brazil. You’ll find it’s easy to act and build on these ideas, too!

It’s Compassion Wednesday, and I’m continuing on the whole how-you-can-actually-change-the-world train. That has always been the point of my Compassion Wednesday posts, but I think I’m just making it more obvious. Because, let’s face it, we all feel overwhelmed and we make excuses for why we don’t act for change. At least, I do. Maybe I’m the only one, but no more. We can do this. You and I – we can make a difference. This post from Compassion is another avenue to make it happen.

Let’s go for it. I’d love for you to visit their blog, read how you can make a difference, and then come back here and leave me a comment to tell me and other readers what you are doing. I’m going to try and do the same. Let’s brainstorm.
Blessings to you!
