The BIG 5-0: We want YOUR photos!

Guess what—it’s our birthday!

That’s right; Compassion Canada turns 50 this year, which means Canadians have been praying for, encouraging and changing the lives of children in poverty for half a century.

That’s a big deal.

Naturally, we’re pretty excited about this, so we wanted to have a little fun…and you can help!

Here’s how: We want your photos of “50”! What’s the best way you can portray the number 50 in a photo? 50 cents? The number 50 on a billboard? Kids spelling “50” with their bodies? Whether you snap a quick shot on your phone or set up a photo with your family, have fun and be creative! Then send your photos to

Here are a few examples to get you started:

Our examples don’t have people in them, but feel free to have whomever you like in your photos.

Happy snapping!
