Pinning for Compassion

If you have a heart for children {especially children in need} and you love Pinterest, then this post is definitely for you.  But don't leave yet if you're not!

As you may be aware, September is Blog Month with Compassion International.  Bloggers are spending more time this month to help Compassion reach their goal of 3,108 children sponsored this month alone.  So far this month 1,515 children have been sponsored.  That means 1,593 need someone like you to reach out and help to lift them out of poverty.  So even if you're not a Pinterest fan - if you have a heart for sponsoring a child, you can just go here to do so.

If you are a pinner, then this is for you!

When you click on the image above, you will be taken to Compassion International's My Sponsored Child Pinterest Contest.  This is an amazing opportunity for you to get pinning and spread the word on what it means for you to sponsor a child {or children}!  The rules are pretty straight-forward:

1.  Create a Pinterest board called "My Sponsored Child"
2.  Pin three specific pins per the instructions on the contest page
3.  Share your Pinterest URL with Compassion using the contest entry form on that page

By creating this Pinterest board, you are sharing with your followers what it means to you to sponsor a child through Compassion.  You are sharing with them the impact that you can make in a child's life.  You are also sharing with them the impact that child has had on your life!

You receive an entry for the contest by participating in this challenge, but you can also receive 30 entries by sponsoring a child!  That's 30 entries for each child you sponsor!  There are ten prizes of a $25 gift for your sponsored child and five prizes of a $100 gift for your sponsored child.  Can you even imagine the impact that would make in their life??  Consider that an average income for one of these families could be significantly less than $100 a month {many earn even less than $25 a month}.  A $100 or even a $25 gift to your sponsored child is huge for that family.

The contest runs from September 17 - 23.

Get pinning!

Get sponsoring!!
